The new map on the PY online website shows where the clubs that send returns are. Theoretically it ought to be possible to produce a map with say different sizewd dots to show how many finishers at each club, but I doubt it would transfer from the long list of development nice to haves to the short list of development budget available.

Move where ? .... anywhere outside of the M25 please (and not in Kent/Essex as both require using that bl**dy car park to get there or back for most)

As water is not required how about the NEC? Easy enough to get to by car and train, relatively central and ample car parking that you can book in advance and scalable depending on the size of the show (1 hall, 2 halls, 3 halls)....

NEC - expensive zero atmosphere and full of brummies, can brummies even swim yet (in something other than a vat of beer)?

perhaps you should come up to Blithfield, Draycote, Shustoke, Olton Mere etc.... to find out.  

Bring a boat and a hearty appetite.... the humble pie will be very tasty.
