More in America

I was looking at the map of competitions for 2009 and I noticed TONS of Competitions in Europe but only 4 in the US (and 1 in South America). I think that we need more competitions in the US and the rest of the Americas altogether. The US is the same size as Europe (even though it is less populated) so why is it that so few competitions are here?

What are you doing to have more competitions in the US?

You actually have to go about organising it...

What is with all the newbies on this forum and all their great suggestions? There are just as many competitions in North America as Europe. I didn't even think this was an issue. Am I wrong?

If this is the first one you may want to run a few unoficcial ones before a real to see how many people would actually show

i admit, i want to see comps in every other state, but in a way i think cubers in America should sort of stop complaining, there are cubers in places other than the U.S. and Europe that can only dream of going to a competition and probably never will just because they happened to be born in an Fu@ked up country. I say we need more comps every where, no matter what it takes. :idea: Thanks
