When I was in the swing of things, I used to go to Elgin. There were more on the East Coast, which I did not go to. Never heard of Kutstown. Where is it and when is it? Thanks,
Dave
ps Is Elgin still alive?

So how long has Kutztown been going on? Are there any other large meets in the USA? Why did Elgin move? Thanks,
Dave

Elgin (I still call it that too) is alive and well but has moved around a bit, They have a new venue again this year that looks promising. Go to the Illinois club site and all the info should be there.

Kutztown meet is HUGE. I have been going twice a year for many years. Was up this morning before 5:00 getting ready to run up there; lucky me: I'm only 45 minutes away.
