 Upper Midwest SPL Competitions

Now, I am going to be frank with everyone here.  There is not a lot of SPL competitions in South Dakota, where I live.  However, I was wondering if anyone knows of some SPL competitions going on in say like surrounding states such as MN, IA, or maybe even NE.  The only SPL competition that goes on in my area is just once a year and it kinda sucks that there is not more.  I have considered starting one of my own but I need to put things together for that.  I dont even have a decent SPL meter such as TermPro or anything like that.  I just have a $150 cheap one.  Maybe next summer I will try to start one, but untill then, does anyone know of many SPL competitions going on around here? Thank you.

Well check the termpro/dbdrag for show's. I'm sure there are some but here in Mi. it was the same kind of thing. My advice would be keep on e-bay for a used termlab. It will only help to have more shows as they are REALY lacking every where.

We now have one of the new termlab's...and so does a diffrent shop 30 miles from us(they coppyed us) so we are going to have quit a few shows this year....maybe bewteen both shop's and a competor  in the middle of the state and now also in the UP(mi) we can get Mi back on the map.

You might be able to start the same for your state. Figure $25 bucks for Db Drag and $35 for Bass Race...or $35 for both.  Now $100 to host the show(to DbDrag org) and there can still be money made. Figure even a small turn out at 25 people and you have paid for listing and most of the meter.

Most local shops are more than glad to host a show(if it's not costing them of coruse) and would be little to no cost. to you  Heck it brings them customer's and that's GREAT for every one.

Figure if  that area is dry  for shows and there are a lot of people with systems in your suronding towns  you could do good...dare I say make some extra cash.

If things go well I'm sure the shop's would buy there own meter to make the money them selves.....now you have a chain going and you can just enjoy.

Good luck and if I hear of any shos I'll let you know.

Surprised I didnt hear anything about a show in Des Moines Iowa.   There are 2 of us very close who would have been there in a second.   Guess we missed the listing somehow.

 

There will be multiple USACI shows in the Omaha NE area.   Also shows in the upper IA region.   So far from what I know there is not a single show booked int he Des Moines Area, due to no shops willing to host one.

 

Check this list, it will be updated and more shows are being added frequently
