Many homeschool families live on tight budgets. By limiting CCNW events to Oregon and Washington, travel to any event is available by a one day drive by car. Furthermore, CCNW events are limited to a maximum of two days, and all two day events must be held on Friday-Saturday. These considerations also reduce concerns about lost work time, thereby allowing greater participation by fathers. Finally, all CCNW event hosts are strongly encouraged to keep event costs as reasonable as possible by using care in facility selection and keeping extras such as awards within moderate bounds.
