tinydog sez:

If  the people that drove extreme distances to Missouri were deducted, that would reveal the number of people that came because of geographic location. 

Having another event in the same general area again, (the center of the country) would only attract/appeal to, the same people that attended last time.

I would suggest that the next event be located in another area where there is a greater concentration of owners. I would also suggest that more than one event is scheduled to be held simultaneously in different areas of the country.
