Are you serious?........ Distance between Lakeport, CA and Campo, CA is 678 miles.... or the same as having a contest in New Mexico and in Campo, CA the same day.... That's 12 hrs driving time (at least) between the 2 contest... Hell Bakersfield could have a 3rd contest in CA that same day and still be outside 300 miles from both places....


From past events you guys get 2-4 So Cal teams up there every yr and I may get 1 nor cal team at Campo per yr.... My event and yours offers almost ZERO difference in team count to our respective events wether or not they are on the same day...

With Pete signing up, I believe 4 more may be needed for this to be a qualifier..

Come on teams! Spend a weekend in paradise!!

Don't forget the Casino gives each team member chips everyday to gamble. Think it was $25 per day. Nice place to visit, bring plenty of things to tie down your canopies, it can get windy. But a fun event.
