No no no. The southern states is in Ft. Lauderdale every year. I competed in it last year and have been to watch it the last few years. I'm only a couple hrs from there, have a few friends doing the show but I'll already be too far after my show to do it again this year. But might be there for support.
Good luck man. That show is huge, be ready to stay there until after midnight.
Big byrd, il be going to the Competition in Alabama, Im going to the Southern Classics next weekend to watch a friend of mine. But pm me closer to the Golds Competition, oh yeah when is it? I forgot the date
