Lots of great posts and great points. I've learned a great deal about Nationals from the "old heads" around here.
To hold it somewhere centralized makes sense to me, but the number of drivers in the east argument is quite sensible as well. Maybe somewhere between I-70 or I-80 as a Northish boundary, I-20 or I-22 (or even 40/44 as a Southish boundary, I-35 as a Westernish boundary, and I-69 as an Easternish boundary would be central enough to draw Western owners as well as Eastern owners? Of course I'm worried for the NE and SE folks as well, but having it inside that box, and sticking to it would allow some variation even if some had to come a little ways to get there. They'd know ahead of time.
I had a GREAT time in Lexington, and if I'd had company the drive there/back would've been better. BTW, thank you for putting on such a great and enjoyable event! I will be in CO next year, and would like to attend events as long as I have my car.
This Sky's not perfect, but it's perfect...for me
