Why have we moved the dates back so late?  I know most of the country doesn't start back until after Labor Day, but these dates completely eliminate any possibility of me bring several students with me.  This is not a complaint (as I don't know how many I could bring), just a genuine question.

These dates were suggested to me so I obliged.  I believe the primary reason was access to judges and to allow Rob to be in attendance.

Welcome back Blake! Any chance of getting Dayne back for at least this year?

Jerome actually left for the world race last week and will not be state side again until December 2020 so sadly he still wont be here.

Do we know if this is going to be more of a "new trend" or just maybe something for this year?  I know Rob has a convention/conference around the last weekend of July most years, so this helps him a lot.  Just curious for future planning.

I cannot comment on if this is a trend setting date other than to stay that was not communicated to me in anyway.

@RDT they do although I am not sure how extensive they are anymore.  The last I heard you stand on a balcony and look down at the factory.

The later date of Nationals is fantastic for my youth group since we have our annual summer camp the last week of July every year. Now we could actually bring a group to Nationals this year since the date has been moved back. Not sure we can make the trek all the way from OR to PA but who knows!

I realize that the schedule hasn’t been determined yet but what are the chances we can run LoC constructed and LoC booster draft this year?

Let me speak with Rob about prize support before I give a final answer but at worst I see them being available as side events.

Man, I don't know. It might be to far for me to go. Going all the way down the road to hanover (15 minutes). Might have to try to talk my wife into it.

See everyone there.

The date decision was driven by my schedule.  I have the Christian Product Expo– Wilmington, DE Aug 16 - 18.

Well Dayne's unsure, but he didn't rule out the possibility of him stopping by to visit and maybe playing sealed.  I wouldn't get hopes up for him coming, but its not out of the realm of possibility.

I'm only about an hour and 15 minutes away from Hanover!  I really hope the LoC only categories are sanctioned events not just side events.
May you prosper greatly!

Maybe I was over estimating but I mapped the time/distance from my house in Hagerstown to the church address and google says 1 hour 10 minutes.  I do remember thinking I would need to give myself 2 hours.  My schedule is just very hard to fit in driving that far while also leaving my wife stranded. (we only have 1 car)
May you prosper greatly!

This might a be a good time to bring up my boys and have them meet the family. Evan is not quite old enough to play type A though. Not sure what we will play yet (some form of booster) or maybe we'll just come see everyone :D.
