Well, I guess you have to keep in mind that the people who are doing this are in Pennsylvania. I know if I ran this event I wouldn't want to fly all the way to LA or something to do it (which would probably be a net loss with travel costs and everything).
You guys are completely capable of doing something yourselves if you want.
Actually, the guy who runs it...namely me...lives in New York, about 2 hours away. And, next year I will be running it from Boston. It's no jump across town for me, either. But, that's where the biggest base of players is. Eventually, as it grows I will move it to a new, more accessible location. But, for now it's baby steps. However, last year we did have players in from Virginia, Maryland, North Carolina, Texas, Massachusettes, Rhode Island, Illinois, and Delaware. And, this year a player is flying in from England. It can't be in everyone's backyard, but people do make the effort.
