Yeah, spoke to a lot of shooting buddies - pre-paying in full more than a year in advance when nobody really knows who's going, is a problem. And accommodation seems to be another huge stumbling block - one hotel has only 23 rooms and fully booked, another has only 44 and not yet taking bookings, and a third only to be completed in almost a year from now - also not big. That leaves a few hundred people without hotel accommodation, and nobody really wants to stay in little B&B's spread all over the place.
Looks like I won't be going afterall - a pity though, as I would have liked to go - but way too many unknowns so long in advance.
