It is more anti-trans than anti-gay from my understanding of the situation

Just for reference, 7 out of 23 teams were from CA went last year, 4 public (Berkeley, El Camino, SDSU and Rio) and 3 private (UoP, SMC, CUI). Next year I assumed that number will be 4-5 with 1 public school and 3 private.
From my understanding a few people talked about hosting an alternative, I have not seen/heard anything about it since the first wave of reactions, the facebooks have been really quiet about this. UoP talked about moving their tournament to January but I am not the person to check with on their schedule. Personally, I do not think it is likely happen. Everyone kind of has their weekend so the desire to change to compete against MH is real low.
I believe the GSL tournament Rob is talking about overlaps with the CUI Jannese Free and the Winter at the Beach CSULB tournaments, assuming CUI keeps their weekend the same as last year. This would affect a lot of the teams listed above. Am I right on those dates?
As for SMC, we are skipping travel on that weekend from now on.
If enough people want us to host a West Coast Round Robin that weekend I would be happy to but we cannot have a full tournament on our campus due to lack of classrooms. Upsides: Flights into Oakland are cheap, the food in the Easy bay is amazeballs, and it has not snowed in Moraga since about 2009. Downsides: its a small, beautiful, and quiet campus in the hills of Berkeley/Oakland, lacks access to a large selection of food/hotels nearby, and I guess it means people still have a tournament the first weekend in January…
