Default Trophy race weekends?

Looking for some input from the masses. Do you consider it good or bad to have a multi day race event on a long weekend? Was thinking of the family day long weekend specificity, as it is a Monday so would still have a day with family or and extra day to get home.

This year, family day in BC is the 13th of Feb, Would you go to a race that weekend?

I love having them on long weekends.

extra day to recover, and I get to spend that day with family etc.

That said, it does make the travel harder, ie ferries get packed and highways are full.

It would be an odd consideration to race that weekend for me, as it is the weekend of Valentines Day.

If the club can afford booking the facility for the weekend and can expect an increase in entries to compensate for the cost, then I say do it. You got pocket aces.

If the club will endure financial difficulty as a result of a potentially marginal turnout, or if the increased number of entries cannot be substantiated/confirmed, then it's a tough call. You've got a Jack/10 on your hands.

With that said Earl, I'll gladly support you and your club if you decide to host an event.

Yeah Earl you host a race on any weekend and assuming I'm not out of country at a big race, I'll be there to support you 100%.
