Has anyone done this "back to back" with the PFTS? I am doing PFTS on Saturday and was thinking of the classic on Friday, but I am really afraid that may be too much.....

We did a back to back in 2010. Friday Classic and Sat. PFTS. We consider ourselves "trained" for these type of events with over 26 attendances at the PFTS or even earlier Grand Tastings. We did have a tough time with the Friday Classic after a French Regional Luncheon - a lot of food on the same day. The PFTS was not a problem the next day. We know to eat light on the day of PFTS. In 2011, we went to the Classic on Saturday. The day was a wash out from that subtropical system, so the S & D moved the Classic indoors to the Swan Convention Center. That was the best part of the Classic, indoors, dry, air conditioned.

We will be attending the Classic again this year, weather permitting.

Most know my husband on the boards as Betterlatethannever.

Thanks Karen.

For others who may be interested, some background info:
The 2011 wash out happened that Friday night right at 7:00 p.m. Rain came in from the East, and stayed through Sunday. It was an overcast, windy, wet mess of a weekend (not ideal for outside electrical setups....).
They made the right decision and moved the SDFWC2 inside to the Swan for Saturday, and it was great. As mentioned above, ideal conditions (namely dry and a/c). That night had a serious resemblance to the PFTS that I have attended in past years.
However, when the event is outside (as it has been 3 of the 4 nights so far), it's a different feel that, IMHO, does not overly duplicate PFTS.

Okay, so far we have 14 responses for Friday night and 8 for Saturday night.

The list was getting a little cluttered, so I have alphabetized the names for easier reference.
