Is there a phone or email contact for the organizer(s) available? I don't have facebook and that looks like the only platform for communication on this one. I'll be in CA from Australia in October and I think I can make this comp. No idea what I'm doing but would be good fun to participate.

I like how you are the first one to volunteer to do nothing. Must’ve learned that in the coast guard.

I apologize. I was just answering based upon DFW limits, not contest rules. I don’t know what the rules are.
