    I need to wait for approval from the club on a date, either October 3 or 10. Pegasus winter meeting is in a couple weeks, and should know by then.

    I'm still favoring Pegasus. Brad....unless you've heard from northern locations, I say let's get this decided and on the calendar.

    Any leanings that can be shared here? I'm trying to work out my ability to make it south as often as I can. Knowing the location with a decent probability could change what other contests are possible with work and travel.

    I'm still game to try and make it from Boston, but I could see losing quite a few from up my area due to the 500+ mile drive to Pegasus. Skip is one of the few that regularly makes the trek all the way up here, but I don't see any far north folks making it down to Maryland on this year's score lists.

    I'm still pretty new to IMAC so I haven't been to all the sites yet. The ones I have been to seem a lot lighter on space for multiple flight lines than Black Dirt. I'm glad I was able to make it to one NE Regional at Black Dirt anyway. It was great to have so many pilots.

    There are a variety of factors, the most significant of which is that Terry Pellerin won't be available to CD the Black Dirt Contest, and Tony Bonanno doesn't want to do it anymore. I think he's spending all his time flying Jets in Florida. BD Squadron doesn't want a CD from outside the club. Also, the neighbor issues at BD are creating problems for the club. So we find ourselves searching for options.

    I'm not making a decision yet because I'm concerned about it just being "another southern contest." Unfortunately, our brethren to the north are silent. I need them to speak up or step up.

    understand but if the northern competitors don't bye in its just another contest in the south so I questioning the availability of the most central venue (in the states).

    Skip....we've been discussing trying some other venues to put in the mix for the finals. Move it around year to year if we can. Black Dirt is one that will stay in the mix, but for 2020 Pegasus looks promising.

    is Black Dirt out of the picture?

    Unless someone comes up with a more northern location I think Pegasus would work well. Lots of room, for rollers, RVs and pit area. Convenient motels, etc.

    If we also have our traditional season opener there, it would bookend the whole season.

    I'm still waiting to hear from the northern reaches.

    Anything new on this? Seems like Pegasus has more room. They also have bidirectional runways.

    My first choice would be Pegasus.

    Gentlemen - If you want to discuss other topics - start them in new threads. I need to keep this thread on topic about the 2020 Regional Finals location. Off topic posts will be removed.

    Pegasus or Lums would be good venues for 2020. Both allow for rollers. Motels are more convenient for folks at Pegasus. Would love to see 2 contests at both locations.
