Back to the point though, of accommodating an oversubscribed number of shooters; can anyone give any reason why not to go to 60 targets with the normal two sessions?

Not suggesting this for Milride now (far too late I assume), but for other GPs with the same problem.
I`m not a huge fan of having to swing my arse around in a lane, but I can see how it makes a better course, Anston i am Expecting to be the best gp course again this year and wont miss it for anything (I hope!)
I does slow shooting down, at Newbury i was around 1 min for two targets apart from where I had to get on the magic roundabout, took another 20 secs or so.
Still, far rather have that than lane after lane of targets all pointing in same direction and not having to think to much about things!
Cant have 60 targets as rules say 50?
If it were 60 i think the shoot would be too long. Dont think i would attend a 60 shot gp series.
