I have tried to follow the bash that they do back east, but its always a long trip for us out west to make it to. My wife and I have started a drag racing promotions company and started to do events around Utah. I thought it would be a good time to have a western Big Block Bash if there is enough interest to cover the cost of insurance and the facility. Respond and let me know how much desire there is, and we can see about putting one on.
Sacramento Raceway has their "All Fast Fords and Muscle Mustangs" on April 14, 2013. Perhaps something could be built around that weekend. And Sacramento is rather centrally located on the left coast--same latitude as Pueblo, CO and Owensboro, KY Bashes.
A lot of inexpensive hotels, too.
Or of course we could possibly create our own dedicated West Coast Bash event. And there are a number of left coast builders and enthusiasts who could put together an evening of Show & Tell as well.
If enough people express interest in the idea of a West Coast Bash at Sac I could look into it--I have a couple of indirect "ins" with people at the track.
p.s.: We did a "Left Coast Hang" two years ago, drinking and dining and great story telling, and that was a blast. This past summer slipped by before another event could be created but we can do that again and/or incorporate it into a full-fledged bash this year if there's enough interest.
