    I have a large piece of property with plenty of parking, and I think it would be good fun to host one. I'm probably years away from attempting to do it, but what does hosting one usually entail?

    Ok, so I read that thread, and I'm still a little confused [​IMG] can this only be for BYC members? If so, what happens if there aren't many BYC members in the area? [​IMG]
