Re: USA Meet Geography Check

How many points on your license?  Another 6 or so would wipe me out for a
while.  :-(  

A track or other closed course sounds like a better solution to me.  The
geographical center of the nation (Alaska and Hawaii excluded) is about 60
miles NW of Kansas City.  Somewhere in the Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska,
Oklahoma, Illinois, etc. region would make a lot of sense to me.  The
suggested location in Indiana sounds real good to me but it's a lot closer
to me than it would be to someone like Steve Buchholz or others on the west

A decision on location and time should be made pretty soon.  My calendar
fills up pretty rapidly for months ahead.  (And I thought that when I
retired I'd have more time for things I enjoy.  :-)  Yeah.  Right.  Well,
actually, I'm enjoying what I'm doing but I stay pretty busy.)
