Well since it is now October (and hopefully only a few months until US Nats 2020 is announced) I thought I would create a thread for US Nats 2020 and start with where it might be.

This thread of course is for anything US Nats 2020 related, but lets start with possible locations.

Based on the location of nats over the past few years I would say that next year it is probably gonna be somewhere in the United States of America.

I think 2020 they are going to have a North America championships somewhere in Canada. US nationals might not happen.
I did hear about the North American Champs (which will be in Toronto, Canada) but I heard from others that US Nats will most likely still happen as well. Not completely sure if that is true or not, but until we hear otherwise, I think we can assume that US Nats 2020 will happen.

Well, one is so that you can crown a North American Champion from North America, and one so that you can crown a US champion from the US.
2013 World Championships in Las Vegas NV - US champions were crowned by taking the top US competitors at the event. So an extra competition is not actually necessary for that. (Although this is admittedly a bit different since it would mean US championship was "held" in a country other than the US.)

What I've heard is that US Nationals will NOT happen on North American Champs years (even years). On odd years, there will be US Nationals but not North American Champs.

Sources: This post from the WCA website and hearsay from the PNW (I wanna say Kit Clement told me but if I'm wrong I don't want to blame him for it)
The only thing I’m seeing on the wca site relating to this is that the wca wants a regional organization helping out with the continental champs. Canada already has a regional organization so I think cubingusa is off the hook unless it’s in the USA... also they can still theoretically hold US nats and NA champs in the same year.

CubingUSA told me a few months ago that NA Champs will NOT impact whether they will hold Nationals next year. This is when locations were announced but not confirmed. I’m confident that there will be a nationals near the southern United States in late July early August like usual.
