Any ideas who will host and where? Moving to the East Coast and altitude restrictions are tight.
Won't be announced until LDRS 39 banquet.
When will that be? Link if you have one. I am obviously out of the loop; I've been working overseas for awhile. Thank you in advance for the help.
Ldrs39.org has the info for this year’s launch.
For some reason putting in a bid for LDRS is always kept a big secret.
When we (Tripoli Gerlach) did it we told everyone.
I would think promoting the bid and getting people who want it at whatever location and letting the BoD know would help the cause.
I hear all the time why isn't LDRS held East, West, North, South, some state....... The reason is a club in the area didn't put in a bid. We wanted to do it at Black Rock so a prefecture was created for it, Tripoli Gerlach.
I agree, Mark!
I don’t think it’s a matter of keeping it a secret but rather, for some clubs, getting landowner permissions, securing food vendor and hotel commitments takes a bunch of time and effort before you are ready to submit your bid. By keeping quiet, you delay the mind numbing number of questions posed to the hosting prefecture once it is made public. No need answering all of those emails and phone calls until the bid is awarded.
In some cases the announcement has been delayed, for example when LDRS was held early in the year. I think announcing it at the banquet has outlived its usefulness. Most people, even those attending LDRS, don't go to the banquet. It it can now be announced on-line as soon as it is decided. No need to wait.
I would suggest leaving the announcement up to the winning bidder. Some may have no issues with immediate announcement, others may be working on various aspects of the bid, right up to LDRS, and don't need the hassle.

One reason not to announce next year’s location before this year’s event is out of respect for this year’s hosts. They put in a ton of work preparing a bid and then many more times that much work getting everything ready. We wouldn’t want to detract from the excitement focused on their event. Plus announcing it at the banquet has been
The other reason is that we often don’t know until right beforehand. In fact at LDRS 36 we couldn’t announce it because we didn’t know yet. LDRS was held early in the year and no bids had come in yet.
We don’t have a bid yet for LDRS 40 but it’s still early.
This right here is, to me, one of the most important reasons.
It would be tremendously disrespectful to a Prefecture that's working hard to host an LDRS to start announcing the next one before theirs is completed.
The announcement propagates quickly from the banquet. Usually well before desert.
