Suppose clubs could be in adjoining regions as long as accommodation is pretty much adjacent to both, and it would spread the marshalling responsibilities .
I know a few travellers who would be up for that idea

I suggested double headers for this season but it was put back.
as such, its on the agena for the november AGM.

If a club has a large enough ground to put on two different 50 shot course it could be the same club hosting it, other wise it could be a region where clubs are not too far apart, say about 15 -20 miles?.

ie i think emly / redferns in nefta, Tondu / oaktree (1 mile apart) in wafta etc

I am not sure there will be a scottish gp next year so that could well be the opener for trying double headers.

Bank holiday sunday + monday dates being ideal?
