all shooters on the same 25 lanes + targets for me.
Yes, I would prefer the exact same course but if you have 4 feeder groups then 87 shooters instead of 75 on a 25 lane course (3 per lane) then it will take longer and there have to be queues or go for 3 sessions of 75 (78 would work). You can't have everyone shooting at the same time unless you increase the number of lanes and accept that there may very well be a problem lane or two. I still think you have to work on 'number of feeder groups' equals time taken to walk from #25 to #1 divide by 3x3mins (shooters per group x average time taken). I.e. if a bunch of people turn up on spec for the am session then they may have to wait for the pm session. Given the travel costs there ought to be a priority for those coming out of region on spec but really it should be by booking-in ahead. Sitting around for an hour on #1 is just a very bad idea - there had better be WC and drinks facilities there :-)
