It was nice to play this years event within driving distance of home, but as to future events, I prefer 2 rounds either side of one night accommodation, rather than 18 (or 27) holes in a day - Location-wise, I believe if the events is somewhere north of London more players will be inclined to travel down from the Midlands & the North (maybe even Scotland?)
Likewise, if the Northern Forum Day is closer to the Midlands, I believe more of us Southern Softies will be inclined to play as the initial journey will not be as penal (?)

You then basically have 2 Midlands events though?

Im based in the midlands so would benefit from either, however, personally i think the 2 events should be kept as "Northern" & "Southern"

The traditional 2 rounds, 1 night stop for North & South Champs with a 1 day "meet" for West & East Mids to fill the gaps between the May (North) & Sept (South) comps?

Geographically based on Leeds and above, Oxford and below, Nottingham as the centre as per my childish use of paint below......





Just a thought............ 
You need to bring that top line down below Manchester Hursty.Nice touch putting Shropshire on there to show everyone where we actually live..

Nice graphic Hursty. My humble input would include Scotland in the map though if we're talking the bigger picture. 

The Formby event was good for our southern folks but it really wasn't good for the Scottish crew. It's hard to please everyone though...

Scotland is that big lump of land at the top of the North bit Z, thus is included (bit like yourself :) )

Luton Hoo is extortionate now they are a challenge tour venue. Have you tried Heythrop Park? Great value and decent course near Enstone

Played Hanbury Manor ( Trilby tour ) great course, beautiful surroundings, first class accommodation,,

 I stayed at a Old english inns in Ware " The Feathers Inn "  enjoyed it more there than a night at Hanbury Manor, 

 good food and beer, better atmosphere,

Am targeting the 1-2nd September but until I have a location booked I can't promise.

Location is likely to be Bucks / Northants sort of area, heading a bit further north this year to see if we can encourage a few more attendees.

I'd be interested if north of London.
Otherwise, too much driving for me.
