I had a quick check at this competition and noticed that some places in the US and Canada can not apply? I am not up on the rules, politics and regulations that go on in the US/Canada so can someone explain why this is the case? I am just interested that's all.
"Residents of North Dakota, Vermont, Connecticut, Maryland, and Quebec are not eligible to participate."
