2018 Survey on Nationals Length

The results of the survey conducted of class members in summary was:

  • 31 for 'the 4 day championships'
  • 7 for 'a week long championships'
  • 23 for 'a week long Championships at Mounts Bay reverting to 4 days for subsequent Nationals'

However when assessing the comments, 9 of those voting for the 4 day championships said they would be prepared to do a week long championships at Mounts Bay.

The Committee discussed this at length and felt the results showed a stronger case for 4 days than a week at Mounts Bay and long term confirmed subsequent Nationals will be 4 days long.

Shoreham rerun is happening on Sunday 28th October as a one day event and everybody is welcome. I will open the bar on Saturday if people want to come the day before. We are planning an 11 o'clock start.
