I would love to have a competition in divide, as it is a lot closer to my house than the colorado springs competitions, and a free venue is hard to beat. I do know that there are a lot of competitions going on in early 2020 though, so I think you would be best waiting until after western championships. The venue sounds great though, really hope you can make it work, good luck!

Edit: There are a lot of comps in early 2020, but none in April that I am aware of, so I think it would be fine if you held your comp in April or waited, whatever works best for you.

So here are some updates/thoughts for the comp that you would like to host (which again thank you for your help with that, and trying to host a comp).

I just drove through Woodland Park today from Monument, and after making the drive it gave me a few ideas that I believe would make the most sense.

1. With WLP being a decent drive from COS and Denver (more so from Denver), although not unlike many comps I have been to in Longmont (or even people in Pueblo to Denver/Longmont), I don't for see your comp filling up completely, and if it does then I am wrong, haha. I think for a lot of people in Denver the 1 1/2 hour drive or more might take a little more planning since they either have to get up early or stay nearby at a hotel, although again other cubers have done that for other comps.

2. With respect to the date, I have heard from 2 people that they are thinking about hosting a comp in April, although I don't know how much planning they have done (if any) and I think that if you can get yours hosted and find a delegate, then they will be fine waiting until July or so to host theirs, but I will check with them and see what they say. But if you can find a delegate, get a list of events/schedule, a few possible dates that will work, and a venue then we can make your comp come true.

Any other ideas that come to me, I will let you know.

Do you think AJ would be available or do you suggest that I contact another delegate?

would it be reasonable to start thinking about late 2020 comps as i have some ideas about some reasonable dates and my shool has done speedstacking competitions before however those are speedstacking competitions another thing they do wich annoys me is they had this rule for the speedstacking ALL COMPETITORS MAY NOT RUN JUMP OR DO ANY INTENSE PHYSICAL ACTIVITY wich would kind of stop runners from doing there jobs but i think i can work it out

I am not serious about organizing a competition yet, but I would also be happy to organize or co-organize one in late 2020, especially here in Summit county (Near Breckenridge). I have a few possible venues, and would only want it to be a very small comp. Not sure how many people would want to come up here though, including a delegate.

@PingPongCuber , having a competition in Breckenridge might not be a bad idea (since you might get some cubers further west come, however that is a bit of a remote area of Colorado in regards to nearby cities/major highways and most people would have to wake up really early on the day of the comp, or find a place to stay in Breck. This is kind of the same thing I pointed out to @KingCanyon with having a comp in WLP, but Breck is a little more out of the way (which is not a bad thing at all) and I think trying to get other possible cubers out that way interested in attending a competitions is a great thing.

The other idea I just thought of is if @oliver sitja sichel and you would like to co-organize a comp and Oliver has a venue on the east side of the Rocky's then you can have a bigger comp and it is closer to Denver, although having a comp in Breck is still a good idea (you just may not have as many people as you would near Denver) although again I think trying a comp in/near Breck is a good idea especially if you can find a delegate.

With that all being said, seeing as it seems you and Oliver are thinking late 2020 that gives you and all of us to figure something out, and get things planned.

Sounds good, we do have a lot of time to figure things out. Any comp up here would be a smaller one, because it would be my first and because we might not get as many people, but considering how full each waitlist on Colorado has been so far, and how fast comps fill up, I think a small competition up here would be just fine. The hard part is getting a delegate, but we are getting a lot more nearby delegates to choose from.

I am also happy to co-organize with Oliver, but as close to me as possible as so far I have had to wake up really early or get a hotel for all of my comps
