The dates and locations are: • March 16 - Clarksville, TN • April 5 - Knoxville, TN • April 12 - Evansville, IN • April 26 - Hixson, TN • May 10 - Bowling Green, KY • May 31 - Madison, TN • June 7 - Owensboro, KY • June 21 - Chattanooga, TN • July 5 - Antioch, TN • July 20 - Elizabethtown, KY • August 17 - Clarksville, TN • August 31 - Madison, TN 3X Soundfest

They're going to be reduced priced events too, but not reduced trophy packages. Really, it will end up costing MECA to do this probably but they've always been in it for the sport vs. the money.

Oh, and I forgot to mention that the events will be 1x events so there most likely wont be any of the veteran MECA guys showing up for points.

What does that mean exactly? It means that if you want to show up and compete and its your first time, you wont get stomped by a guy (or girl) who competes in MECA professionally.

For people in those areas, definitely.

But it appears as though MECA is dead up here. No shows in IL, WI, or MI.

Yeah, I think I know why as well. :laugh:

Too bad too. I liked MECA shows until they started getting more and more gay with the rules.

With my stand there isn't 20", however with one of the stands used at finals there most likely will be.

Does that mean I'll do a MECA show this year? Probably not seeing as the closest show is 3+ hours away.

Come to a db drag show, perhaps you'll see it there. :D

In truth, I MAY do a MECA show this year just because I like the format.

We'll see I guess.

They're trying to branch out to people whom never have competed before vs. catering to veterans such as myself.

Come out to the Elizabethtown show at Best Buy. I'll be there to demo and compete in MX2. We'll at least make some noise :D


Here is the schedule for Kentucky at the moment (Best buy events and non-best buy)


4/5/2008 5th Annual Party in the Park Elizabethtown KY 2x Event
5/10/2008 Geek Squad Sound-off Series #5 Bowling Green KY 1x Event
5/11/2008 5th Annual Fiesta at Freeman Elizabethtown KY 2x Event
6/7/2008 Geek Squad Sound-off Series #7 Owensboro KY 1x Event
6/29/2008 5th Annual June Jams Elizabethtown KY 2x Event
7/20/2008 Geek Squad Sound-off Series #10 Elizabethtown KY 1x Event
7/26/2008 Vaperz Southern Slam Car Show Oak Grove KY 0x Event
7/27/2008 Vaperz Southern Slam Car Show Oak Grove KY 2x Event
9/13/2008 5th Annual Freeman Lake Finals 2x Event

I know of at least one possible show in april that is not on this list that is supposed to be on the Fort Knox base, but I believe its still in negotiations with the Army.

lol, are you serious? I drive 3+ hours each way for single point shows and 8+ hours each way for multi point shows. I wish there were 2x shows as close as 3 hours away. You guys are spoiled down there :D
