Why is there an MB Events thread area...

...AND Regional thread areas? Most of the listings in the MB Events area are of the regional type; why not have these in the specific region?

Should I move the upcoming meet info I have already posted in 2 other thread areas here?

The reason it is there today is that when the site was smaller there were no regional sections so all events were posted in the Events section. As the site grew and there were more consistent regional events we started to break those out. The regional events don't encompass all 110 countries represented on the site so the Events section remained as an 'other' section. We also were doing a National SLKWorld event which wouldn't fall under a regional section.

It's up to the new owners how they want to manage going forward.
