Also a few brownie points could be harvested as family time would be more frequent .
We have the bfta / inters in april . Nefta classic in may . possible return of the anglo to take into consideration as weekend shoots . Thats 3 monthly weekend shoot out of a 6 - 7 month national calendar , so ..... would it be worth thinking about dropping gp's to 6 or 7 rounds ?
Soz to divert slightly , but maybe an ideal chance to see how the weekend shoot get togethers would go !
Thanks , calps .
whats stopped it happening in the last 10 years?
How about something along these lines
double header to start the gp season off - april / Easter Bank holiday.
Bank holiday event could be sunday and Monday, or saturday and sunday.
end of May, Bank Holiday weekend,. Again, Sunday + monday?
end of June
rd 6 end of july
rd 7&8 end of August, bank holiday weekend
Rd 9 to finish Sept
I think the Gp series is the hardest Ft Series Champioship to win overall, i would not like it to drop any rounds.
above allows a few extra weeks off during the summer so famiily holidays can be taken etc?
open / other shoots?
