Default Question for the Upper Midwest(Comp)

Would there be any interest in a comp in the Milwaukee area this summer? I'm working with a local charity group to put something together at or around Wisconsin State Fair Park and I may need some assistance in getting this thing up and running. Everything is super preliminary as of right now but any feedback would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Mike

If the timing is right I am sure our team would support another KCBS contest.Wi. has 1 contest in may( Dells),1 in june (Montello),2 in August (Princeton and Westfield) And labor day weekend Milwaukee.Also factor in Memorial day weekend Westmont Il if I remember correct.Also in July there are 2 contests although not in Wi they are supported by several of the teams from Northern Il and Wi,these being Shannon,Il.and Kingsford,Mi.which is in the UP just north of Green Bay.Also the weekend before the Dells is Minnesota in May which I know a few teams go to also.I think to get the amount of teams needed to have a sucessful event you need to find a date thats not piled on existing events.I am sure I didnt list all of the area events but I just did this off the top of my head.Oh yea Libertyville ,Il .I hope we can help you get this event off the ground.

They may as well do something with Fair Park as long as they arent doing any racing there.

I for one would LOVE another event in our area.

As you said, it would have to be date dependent, and as I posted in the 'PoorQue' thread, and I know it's to late for this year, I would really like to have a nearby comp in the early spring that we could use as a practice comp since the first one 'in the area' for spring is Minn. In May...

I know, that's about the earliest we do have around here... Ironic that it's done in the snow since I hear that Minnesota doesn't thaw out until June... lol Just kidding... Ducking for conver mod!

Actually, what I was getting at is that it would be nice to have a comp, similar to what is proposed for PoorQue, early in the season. I think it would be easier to justify a known non-money maker if I knew that I would be doing a practice any way and because of the timing, it may be easier to get other experiaced teams out to it for a 'shake-down' run.

Just sayin...

Well, last year there was Wamac, IL; Edwardsville, IL; Steeleville, IL; Westmont, IL and Moweaqua, IL all before the second week of June last year. All within 5 hours of us. So they are out there and closer than MIM. Which I have cooked a few times as well.

Thanks for the feedback thus far fellas. The dates are still up in the air a little. I know early May is probably out of the question but June may be a possibilty as well the first and last weekends in July. The KCBS needs 3 options for an event date to coordinate reps etc. Still trying to pull something off.
