    If the will was there, another 20% would be feasible, by using Sat evening, running later on Sunday and relocating all the non-fencing elements (like Armourers, teeshirt etc) off the main floor.

    Hi Chris

    I gave a lot of thought to how capacity might be expanded.

    In my time of running it, we usually managed to juggle capacity because some weapons would be undersubscribed, and Milind was...
