Good idea on the player card Mike.
One thing I wanted to add (and it goes with increasing the revenues/chance of success) this will be one national worth bringing family or friends. You know how hard it is to take family to most nationals. It long, tiring, hot/cold/rainy/windy, etc. Well, this is one that anyone can go to, watch the races they are interested in, then go PLAY!
As of now we have two grandparents, two of my wifes cousins, and whole pile of kid-cousins coming. There may be more as we get closer. They all get to see this thing called BMX my kids do with all of the excitement of a national, but without all of the headaches.
Just as an FYI, I heard that the race attendees have booked THREE TIMES the rooms the ABA told them they would. This is a very good sign.
