As far as I can tell, and someone correct me if i'm wrong... the Euro's may have a permanent position in geography and calendar, but there's nothing baring anyone (even those outside Europe) from competing.
Now if we want a roving European competition ala WFTF, surely we're going to hit the very same problems? I'd suggest we sort the biggest one out first, then the others would have something to aim for.
Anyway, all being signed off, the Euros next year will also be the EFTA selection weekend, so if we did move it, i'd be looking for the table furniture to stay exactly where it was while the table cloth was swiped, because it's taken long enough to get to that point !
