    Just as the title says. I don't need an exact date. Just what month or a website or something would really be helpful.

    I know :D. Just making sure that's out there. It has only been pure coincidence that the Blowout has fallen about the same weekend before. Last year it happened to be Eric's only open date to do it.

    Since there have only been two - - and the scheduling of the second annual was purely coincidental that it was on the same weekend as the first - - that is a mighty assumptive statement.
