Yes, I agree. I only started doing the GPs because they were so different from the local/regional club shoots. Different terrain, ideas, layouts and winds. Really enjoyed them when they are different but less so when they are a long line of sameness.
Until you have visited a club you don't know what to expect for the next time. Really makes the day when a difficult target like no other you have had a go at falls over.
When FT is no longer fun I will do something else. No sense in splurging all that cash for a bad day out :-)
