The west has hosted nationals for years, but there was an out cry by many western shooters when the nationals were held in Ontario and Quebec for consecutive years during the 1990s. Our sport seems to be cyclical. Factor in the Grand Prix being out east and nationals in the 1990s and it was a lot of work for eastern volunteers as well.
Going back to nationals, in the last 15 years I don't recall there ever being a reduced schedule. Iím sure itís longer than 15years, but I canít comment on that as that was before my time.
Other options (for discourse):
1 - Why not piggy back the national this year on a provincial championship and allow all the events to be shot?
2 - Divide nationals into two matches, one for the Olympic events and the other for the rest. This is not ideal, but I'd rather see it divided than not take place.
3 - The other option is, piggy back our nationals on the USA nationals. Given itís already a match that can be used to qualify for the CDN National and Dev. Team.
