I was not referring to you specifically, Scottie.
I believe your observation on attendance is correct. Regardless of where the event is held, the majority of attendees will be local or from neighboring states, with the remainder being the lucky minority who have the time and money to make such a trip.
That's why I think moving the meeting around is a great idea as it gives the maximum number of members an opportunity to attend over time. For myself, I am no more or less likely to attend in San Diego than Kansas City. I enjoyed going to the banquet in Nashville and would attend another if it was within easy driving distance or cheap airfare (like Las Vegas as you suggested).
