Just curious – what site (or area)  brings out the most cars and people?

Don't know if actual attendance figures have ever been posted for all or any conventions.  The ones at Fontana and Charlotte seemed awfully big.

Maybe how many cars registered would be a better guideline. I would guess that SAAC keeps attendance figures private for some reason.

most of us think california has the most cars, but, i think saac has noted that the most cars come from the northeast. (not sure if we count 2 real cars as one, you know, rust and all) my opinion is  if you have 100 or 1000 its all the same. phred

The number of cars registered to SAAC members in a particular area is not indicative of how many will come out to play or show off.  Also the number of members who will attend without cars because of the venue location is a strong variable, I would think.  A lot for the board to consider as well as cost, etc. as Rick has written about many times.

To answer that I would say the Left Coast generally has the larger turn outs, by shear number in money paying visitors. What allot of folks don't seem to understand is what it takes to host and plan an event like the national convention. There are numerous factors involved. It's not a "I wanna have it here decision". There are previously scheduled events at various tracks, varying costs/contracts, Hotel considerations, and then Staffing it. Everybody wants, but it's always the same story in that it's the same small group that busts their behinds (applaud these folks) to get it done. But when it comes to volunteers to step up and help you can hear an echo.
Laguna Seca would be a blast, but I think it would be cost prohibitive. (Couldn’t afford the track costs, let alone the surrounding hotel costs for the attendees) as well as conflicting events throughout the summer. Let's see, the Concourse de Elegance is in August, have you ever tried to get hotel accommodations during that time. The rates would compete with hotel rates in Paris in July.
I like the thoughts of flip flopping the Left and East coasts, it was sure nice having it here in NorCal this past summer. But here’s a note to consider for the powers that be; There are a couple of interested parties that may consider a joint venture in hosting The National Convention. How’s that for a different avenue?

All the Best,
~Earl J.

  Although a very nice facility, its much too small for a National Event. Also, there a a number of restrictions surrounding the use of this track.
  To comply with local laws, the track is listed as a Private Gentlemens Club; which limits its operations, so its unlikely you will see any large   
  program there.
