Just trying the water here, 
Would there be interest for meets between Monday's & Friday's. 
The reason I'm asking this is that as a working couple we have to work weekend's.

I suppose it begs the question is it feasible for us to have longer meets occasionally say starting on friday to run for 10 days ending on the following Sunday??
What do we think...

If it costs the club nothing, then why not.

Shouldn't be a problem having a different marshal during the course of the event .. (as long as we can get some one to marshal that is !) Embarassed

I don't mind being Marshall for any meets I attend ....................................

but be warned..................

The last club meet I marshalled the club folded shortly after and now even the website doesn't exist.  I even had to cancel the future planned meet for 2013 I had organised.

Several marshalls at one meet does work I did it with MHF and seen it done with CCC.

So having week days with weekends would work for you sometimes then?, ie double your chances

Problem I see with this is, are we big enough to hold 10 day meets? have had to cancel 3 rallies this year, can't see site owners being very happy if we book for 10 days and there is no one there for half of it, we have a 9 day meet at Bridlington, 6 day at Bournemouth, agree its something we need to try but it does worry me a little.
And we try and plan 2 meets per month, a ten day meet would mean 3 weekends in a month, would we get members at so many?

On looking at the response to this thread looks like there definitely is intrest.
We are obviously trying to run 2 meets a month & I dont see too much problem in making them 6 nights/7 day meets on some of them if not all, giving everyone a chance to attend we would probably need 2 marshals for these meets, members can be added to a list stating arrival & departure etc...
What do others think about this??
