To be perfectly honest, if you put on a contest that time of year in the midwest, and put up semi-decent money, I can almost guarantee you would get as many teams as you would like. I don't see in-climate weather being a factor. People want to compete-period. Traveling a 1500 miles to Georgia or Florida isn't feasible for a majority. Just my opinion.
