having been a past member of a Cougar club in SoCal, we used to have a 'national' show that was hosted by our club. It was open to anyone, but when we had our show in SoCal we would get people from around New Mexico, Colorado and Montana on west. Even some Canadians showed up. Its possible to make a national style show work, but it has to be regional too....
BTW the east coast guys had their own event too. same style. It worked well for us. a Ranger only show that could pull a couple hundred trucks would rock. Just gotta make ti open to customs, minitrucks, offroaders and everything in between.
