You won't get people travelling across the world and country for just one day... imagine traveling to SA for a day's shoot...

That's why a venue has to be big enough. Weston may have other areas, but it needs to be a much bigger site than is used for the Euros... and you need access much more than a week before. Most of the courses that have been used beforehand have had a dry run in part or completely.

Cripes, even if you have a cut, you'll need a plinking range the size of Italy for practice and day 1, and that was probably a good proportion of the line at the Euros. And that's just one course. A two session course aint the way to decide a title like a world champ in my book, not unless you squad everyone from day 2 onwards, and rejig it every day... even then I don't think it's ideal as you will have to change a course after day 1 to ensure squadded shooters don't end up repeating lanes.
