A Worldclass Master division at a regional con is not something that I expect to see. I expect Novice, Journeyman and Regional Master; not Novice, Journeyman, Regional Master (Craftsmen) and Worldcon Master.
AFAIK most, if not all, of the local Worldclass Masters have been running the local masquerades for years so they haven't been competing (I think Derwin Mak is the one exception), so we usually just have one "Master" division, and it's still usually pretty small. We do have some new Regional Masters recently in the anime community, though, and are encouraging them to branch out to more 'traditional' ICG cons.
