Hey Will,

Did you have a chance to look at the Lava beds that are just minutes south of Bend? There is tons of rock there, hotels and such, all except major airport. The place I think is a state park.

Yes, you cannot get permits. The good rock also requires a half mile hike.

From what I've seen and heard a big event takes a massive amount of work. Teamwork. The list of folks/clubs that care enough and have the time, patience, resource, location and connections to pull one off is very short, and as we've seen, getting shorter.

Being a part of the crew that set up the West Coast Shootout this year, I can tell you that it was almost a full year in the planning of the event. Everyone wanted it to be just perfect and no stone was left unturned to try and bring that to the group. Sponsors, locations, hotels, food, courses, shirts, scorecards, entertainment, raffles, scoring, setup and tear down, port-a-potties, camp sites and anything else I forgot about took 10+ guys to get it all right.

I wish it could have been done again but I think it became so much of a "job" for those involved that taking on the task again was a lot to ask. No one would have wanted it to be less than it was this year so it seemed better to not do it than disappoint the group that would have attended next year. Just my thoughts.

How about a Western Shootout in Sunny AZ. Who would drive out? I have been kicking around some ideas, maybe something "different"!! Who wants to run 40 gate courses, no point out, lowest score wins!

Time Limits?

Reason why ask we did something similar locally and had multiple drivers on the course. Drivers were not allowed bump other drivers, but clean passing was allowed. We put 20 drivers through a course in 30 minutes.

I am always game to try new things as long as its thought out in advance.

Great question.. it will be up to our next year's club's admin.... my guess would be 2015 WCS isn't going to happen...
But I've been wrong before.

How do you judge 20 guys on a 40-gate course at one time? Practicality aside, it sounds like fun.

Sorry we only had 10 gates, and a 3x drivers on the course at a time.

We were only calling gates to get some newer Trail Class drivers use to running gates.

As far as a bigger event using more complete rules.....Judge follows a single driver. 10 judges would could crank through alot of drivers very quickly.

Not saying I have all the answers, but I think the concept could work logistically, but would need some fine tuning experiments before being launched at a big event.
