    I am working on my 2018 calendar and am wondering whether there will be an IBO West Coast Traditional Championship this year? The IBO website only shows East Coast and Mid America. Hopefully, Mike Rash or his son will pick this up and let us know.

    I see the IBO Mid-America Traditional Championship is going to be held April 13-15, 2018 in Noblesville, IN. Wondering.... does this shoot follow the same format as the Traditional World shoot? If not, what's the difference, and who's planning on going?
