If your region has let's say 10 small clubs and about 60 shooters that will find somewhere to shoot every weekend , are summer leagues a good idea?
I know it's a good way to bring new shooters into the comp side of things and it also gives a local comp if you do not do the GPs but at what cost .
If small local clubs need a handful of people to attend every week to keep funds coming in " land rent , insurance " are the constant comp events taking that revenue away.
Maybe regions need to take a closer look at what's important to them , comps or plenty of venues for winter leagues.
All views welcomed
