Hey Tar, check www.kcbs.us (http://www.kcbs.us) and click on the Contests link and take a look there. I did not see any in VA for the month of August.

I have September 21-22 as a KCBS event in New Market... and thats it for this year. :cry:

There were 3 others. One in April in Smithfield;and 2 in May: one in Chesapeake and one in Danville.

But for some reason I dont show the IBCA events on my calendar. I'll look more.
