2007 X PRIZE Cup at Holloman Air Force Base

RLV News points to an article in the Las Cruces Sun-News on the move of the X PRIZE Cup from the Las Cruces airport to Holloman Air Force Base. This was discussed by Will Pomerantz as a possibility at the 2007 Space Access conference. There will still be a related (and from what I read last year probably well worth while) conference in Las Cruces, but the actual X PRIZE Cup will be at Holloman. This allows the X PRIZE Cup to combine an air show with their space show. It also gives them access to a lot more facilities like hangars, parking, and launch pads. Las Cruces is still the likely "home base" for many travellers.
