Of course... WI is a hotbed of Vanners I have to meet, and close to those of you in the midwest! Too bad WI has winter in Feb... but still a great opportunity! Just won't be any camping!

I envy y'all that have vanning schedules that would prevent you attending another nats!

Why not ???? Dutch spent the first night in his van at the Detroit CoC in Feb and Wisconsin will probably be warmer than that !

I am not really keen on 2 Nationals.
We all know the rules for the bidding for the hosting of The Nationals was set up when there where 100's of clubs and allot of van councils.
Moving the locations helped to keep the event fresh.
Now with a smaller core group of vanners working on the nationals what would be the harm in picking some key locationas in the hot beds of the vanning comunity and switching off the locations from year to year.
The mid west one year,the mid atalntic one year,back to the upper mid west,then back to the new england area,
I have herd that vanner have complained about returning to a venue.
Bigger car runs like the Street rod nationals have been held in the same place for years.
I just kinda think if we could map out a plan it might be easier for the Nats board and the hosting clubs to consentrate on provding a better event and give vanners who live farther out like the West coast guys a more concrete way to plan to make an event.

No way your going to get my van out in a snowstorm!
I think if you tried to have a second NATS it would take away from the (summer) National Van Run. As you know we all save for and plan on going to the NATS all year.

I think it would make the most sense to just have the Nationals in New Hampshire every year....rofllollolrofl.....

but I guess thats not ever ganna work, but I do love the fact that 2 Nationals in a row (PA & NY)are less than 8 hours away from my house.....I missed the last 2 cause they were way too far.....

I do wonder where the most Vanners are located, Its gatta be New England,right?
