    Default No GP at Capital Challenge?

    I was looking forward to the Cap Challenge GP, but it doesn't seem to be scheduled this year. I did a search on this and couldn't find any mention.

    Does anyone know why it's not being held? According to the homepage the show organizers wanted to focus on hunters and eq, but what's a big indoor-before-the-indoors show without a GP?
    You can take a line and say it isn't straight- but that won't change its shape. Jets to Brazil

    I know! I was upset also, the first gp I ever saw was there when I was...8? I think :]

    Maybe they were worried they wouldn't get enough people because of the WEG? Seems kind of unlikely, but a lot of the bigger riders might be there? Only reason I can think of...

    I don't think they had a GP last year either- just a Jr-A/O classic.

    Yeah, they stopped having the GP a couple of years ago, I think. I was horribly disappointed about that as well. It was the one things I really looked forward to. There was a thread on it a while or so back, I think.
