Why do I bother????????

Why has this become a problem for some? 2 sessions, 1 starting at 9, 2nd starting at 1 gives 4 hours per session if needed. You know it's going to take around that long before deciding to go, so what's the bother? Why does it need to be a mad dash because somebody is missing Eastenders or something??????? I appreciate that there is a lot of travelling, but again, this is a know factor and not some sudden surprise.
I've only just had a dabble with GP's for the first time this year. Yes they are longer than a winter league shoot, but I never felt as though there was a hold up. It was just a steady plod through the course at a sensible pace. Most people like the sociable side of the shoots as well.

The only time that I have felt that things were taking far too long was during a winter league shoot when a partner was taking an absolute age for every shot, despite gentle "hints" about this. To be honest I would quite like the GP timed lanes to be used for the W/L shoots as well.

Also, why do threads like this always seem to end up getting around to whether the courses are too hard/ easy etc. As they are not cleared by a group of shooters all the time, why the call to make them harder?? Could those who are asking for more challenging courses all the time, mini kills, more positionals etc please post how many GP courses they have actually cleared to date within the current format?? I'm sure that plenty reading the thread would like to know.
