Below I list the most relevant reasons you listed as to why the competition should be held on the east coast.Well I actually provided several examples the reason actually my cousin said "it's our turn" was because I suppose it would be a good thing to say.
Here I agree with you that there are many urban centers in the Northeast, with ease of travel. You post hints at the fact that if the competition is held in this region that Bob will be doing all the work. Are you to help with this workload? Did you mention if you will be able to help with this workload? How do you think Bob will feel about being handed this responsibility without asking for it?Manhattan is also very urban, with many methods of transportation to help facilitate travel to the venue, including amtrak, MTA (Long island bus, Long island railroad, New York City subways), path trains, and New Jersey transit, especially for Bob.
I kind of agree with this, but how does this fact help make sure that the Nationals, in being held on the east coast, are organized 1) More easily or more efficiently, 2) in a good venue, 3) with a good organizational staff?Plus, I believe that having US Nationals on the (north)east coast would make it much easier for European and Canadian cubers to attend (less expensive flight rates, and shorter traveling distances).
Are we to give the European cubers who come lots of responsibility for organizing the competition? I don't see how this facts improves the quality or capability of the east coast organizing the competition unless we dump the work on all the Europeans who show up.
I'm not trying to completely shoot down your idea, but from what I can tell there is no constructive information in your post as to how hosting the US Nationals on the east coast will improve the quality of organization, the capability to organize, finding a good venue, etc. to any of the necessities for running such a large competition.
This line that I wrote in my first post is still relevant:
Rather than saying "please hold it on the east coast" why not say "Here is what I can contribute to it being held on the east coast?" That would go over much better with the WCA board in my opinion.
I don't feel you have shown how holding the competition on the east coast contributes to the quality of US Nationals 2010. More specificaly I don't feel the reasons you listed are convincing enough to the WCA board that US Nationals 2010 should be held on the east coast.
Now, having said that how can we improve those suggestions to convince the WCA board that holding the competition on the east coast would be a good idea? Let's think much more constructively.
