For you. Santa Cruz is technically 12 - 13 hours away (unless I'm driving, then it's more like 10). So Nor Cal would suck. We DID have a place to run it in Phoenix (ahem), but some situations have changed. Oh well. Looking forward to the Ca event when it comes up
San Diego to Santa Cruz can be made easily in 10 hrs, you just have to know the shortcuts.
But IF the Ca. Qual. happens where it is currently being discussed it would be easily within 8hrs from anywhere in California. But that is a big IF, So we'll just have to wait and see what Rory finally comes up with in the next few coming weeks. Just know for now that there are options for players out here on the West Coast to compete in the SPPL, so start filling your piggy banks NOW!
