Midweek events at Eastbourne
Last year when we were not able to run the Summer Meeting at Eastbourne, we ran the mid-week events as satellite events in a few clubs around the country. This was very successful so we decided to continue it this year, which certainly meant the overall fields were much larger than they would otherwise have been.
However, a number of people felt they detracted from coming to Eastbourne and removed much of the incentive for staying during the mid-week. One point that was made by a few people was that the trophies should have gone to the Eastbourne winners rather than the overall winners.
The demise of the mid-week knockout teams was lamented, though no real solution to this was proposed, since it had been in decline for quite a number of years and was discontinued solely due to lack of support. Any good suggestions for bringing it back?
