CEDA nationals this year, 139 teams.

NPDA nationals this year, 160 teams.

USU/WUDC nationals this year, 200+ teams, probably 212.

Interesting. Comments welcome. For me, I am glad that there is so much 
more debating going on in the USA in many formats. Plus, NFA-LD, APDA, 
CPF, IPDA, etc. More debate good.

If you want more information about the WUDC format please feel free to 
ask and I will send you links to training materials.
