And to all those mentioning random cities (east/west), step right up and show that you can organize and execute a TOP NOTCH T&F championship & the site hosting will be awarded to you (only takes thousands of committed volunteers, community & business members and expert & experienced T&F officials who contribute 100s of 1000s of hours to each event). Again, step right up and show what you HAVE DONE. Empty claims about how great you/your city/venue are will be evaluated by your ACTUAL PAST ACCOMPLISHMENTS.
no offense but shut the hell up. All cities a certain size are capable of hosting events. They do it ALL THE TIME. They find volunteers, they find business members to sponsor, and there are committed T&F fans all over the country. At it's basic a T&F champ is no different than other events except with much smaller crowds.
Acting like Eugene or Sac are the ONLY towns capable is just plain stupid.
