The idea Andras is to get more shooters shooting, the same amount of targets, roughly in the same amount of time, either for the shooter or for the club. It's restricted by the daylight hours and the need for at least 2 sessions.

Your right in that if you build more lanes you can get more shooters on. But it's not right to say that's the same as twice as many in a gp session because it isn't or that its the same when you have a fifth of the targets missing. That would mean either 40 shot GPs or more time needed. Surely?
More lanes works of course if you go to the "shoot 25 lanes from 40" i.e. everyone shoots a different course. Unlike, say, 10m or 25m where adding lanes adds shooters and the targets are all the same (but wind will be different but that is luck of the draw). Our problem is that we have 25 lanes or 50 targets and want everyone to shoot the same course (in different sequences). OTOH if it is raining a lot won't show up, not liking their stock to get wet or their Daystate to stop working :-)

Floodlights ... there you go - after dusk shooting - what is a few trip hazards in the dark amongst friends. (really not serious!!)
