    Although we have to have 2 per year to get the 9 rounds in, how many shooters would like to have 3 in a season.

    I personaly think the double headers are the soul of UKAHFT.

    At a normnal shoot you may see a few friends and your shooting partners, But at the double headers everyone goes out for dinner and gets to make new friends.

    Also it is hard to ask someone to drive a 300 mile round trip to shot 30 pellets, But to ask them to drive 300 miles for a weekend of shooting and fun thats a different matter.

    More double headers please

    Same as what Gary says I like the double headers for the social side as well as the shooting. I would still do all the events if it was 9 single rounds but double headers are great.

    I love double headers, an ideal season for me would be round 1, then 4 double headers followed by the Gathering.

    Can't see that happening but another double header weekend would be great.:)

    Double Headers are always good to do .... especially if you have 2 close venues.... I'd quite happily go to 3 double headers... but 2 is fine... I always look forward to them... just another excuse to put in for more holiday!!!

    Double headers are great and make for a weekend away but also puts pressure on some folk such as me who's partner ain't into shooting. She's understanding about having 2 weekends a month taken up by shooting in the summer from March to September with the nationals and hunter series but don't think she'd like it if I were away 3 or 4 full weekends.Then there's the hastle of getting extra time off work and added expense of hotel bills, food e.t.c.
    Although I enjoy them 2 are enough for me and I think more could see a downturn in the number of shooters which would be a shame.I say leave it as it is.

    I'm with Dave on this alltough i did vote for no double headers but that might be because i struggle to finish a one day event a two day event and stopping in a travel lodge bed very nearly kills me :eek:

    I voted for more, as they are great weekends, but i can also see that additional cost may be a problem for some, along with additional grief from spouses.

    double headers

    I have to agree with Dave, I do not do double headers just to much hastle and cost. If you put another one in I would struggle to do the six rounds.

    Rik and I were discussing this last night and it may end up saving us money, for example if you were to have 3 double headers verses 6 single events for us it would be the same amount of nights in hotels(may even get better deals on more than one night), but it would save us fuel costs, and when its a 500 mile trip up north to do it only once rather than two single events thats over a tank of fuel saved.

    I can see it being a pain if you have family commitments though.

    Although with three doubles does that mean there will not be a UK event once a month or would the season be shortened?
