For the discussion of a renewal of the Newport Cup to take place in 2015. The first year's event will take place in southern California, most likely in late September or early October.
This thread is for the pre-discussion of it. Obviously nobody can commit at this point, and around March of next year we'll create a second, new thread for the actual discussion.
This is a brainstorming thread.
* What this event can NOT be is a SoCal outing with a few other guys sprinkled in. That would defeat the purpose. So it'd likely be something like "east of the Mississippi versus west of the Mississippi." Or "California versus everyone else." Or something like that.
Then two years after that, we'll have it in our neck of the woods (the Erie/Cleveland/Columbus/Pittsburgh area).
