If your bus comes through Milwaukee, WI I'd be up for jumping on that bandwagon.

Seems to be some decent initial support for OH. If it ends up there I'll be able to go and bring as much of the PA group that wants to come.  (I'd offer transportation for attendees of the PA state tournament until our church van is full). Possibly do a group of vehicles if necessary and if the MD group wanted to team up with us again we could have a convoy.

I would definitely support it being in Ohio. After having to miss it last year in MN I'd love if Nats was within driving/busing distance again! :D

Depending on where you are in Ohio, it's a 12 hour drive.

We will be putting in for Nationals in Ohio this year, just north of Cincinnati.

Ironic, its seems every time Nationals comes to Ohio a major life event happens...The last time that Nationals was in Ohio, we got engaged. And if it's in Ohio this time, it would be around the same time we are expected to become parents :D.

He lives near (or in) Madison, WI so he's saying that because he was unable to attend MN Nats due to conflict he would be happy if he'd be able to drive/bus to Nat's in Ohio, which he would've been able to do last year if he did not have a conflict.

Third time I'll be able to travel to Nats in 5 years. Maybe I'll make an appearance. Now the big question is whether to take my vacation for Creation or Nats?

From what I understand it's not one of the bigger playgroups, but it is fairly central to many of the larger playgroups, which should lead to an overall big turnout--potentially even larger than MN this past year since it would be closer for SE players (GA, FL, TN, AL).

Can anyone attend Nats or do you have to be in the rankings? I haven't played in over 2 years.

There are no qualifications to attend Nats whatsoever.  There are RNRS points (ranking system involving points per tournament win/place through the year) that are difficult to place in just by winning a Nationals, but otherwise there is nothing that goes on at Nats that anyone off the street couldn't be a part of, including winning the whole thing ;)

Although this is technically true, you will not see me make a 14 hour drive just because it is closer than a 20 hour drive.  ;)

You would think Nationals would go to the biggest playgroups outside of the region that  hosted it last year.  But maybe the biggest play groups are the ones that are not very large.

Whoa... Deep.

Anyway, depending on when it would be, I might be able to make it. Possibly.

Nationals have never been in Florida. The two closest were New Orleans (2004) and Tennessee (2012), both of which are over 9 hours away from Central Florida.

With that said, though, I have already expressed that a Florida Nationals would be rough for everyone else in the country, since we are only "centrally located" if you live on a ship. To my west is the Gulf of Mexico, to my east is the Atlantic Ocean, and to my south is the Caribbean Sea. Places like Ohio make more sense since they are bordered by several different states.

That being said, Florida is a great place to vacation, and if planned far enough in advance, and if central Florida gets a big enough group of regular players, I believe it could be doable.

So, maybe Nats in Florida in 2016 or 2017.  We'll need to get back to you on that.

The last time Nats was in Ohio, five of us took a (mega) bus round trip road trip from Minneapolis. We had a grand and glorious time.
This sounds like a GREAT idea.  I'd like to get in on that if Nats returns to OH.
I wanna go to nats so bad this year but idk if i'll have enough to pay to enter cause ive been needing to think about my apartment

I went to florida last year, and it was awesome. However flordia gets super hot in the summer, and nats is in the summer, so that might not be the best idea. Bu that's just my opinion.

ive been to florida back in September of 2012 and I guess at the time it could still be considered summertime cause it was pretty hot down there
