Very good idea by Coppersaucepipe but I think it'd only mean there would be a vastly reduced entry level until the Met Office announced it to be a rain free weekend.
Skids has made the point before, we need commited entry numbers so we get our own grid regardless of the conditions. It's almost impossible to barter with a club when you've no idea who's going to turn up and support you.
Could we do a poll to gauge an idea how many people will be lining up at how many rounds? Maybe if we get good grids at say 6 rounds, NG might return the favour by giving us our own grids when the numbers are a tad low.

It's not the size of the dog in the fight that matters, but the size of the fight in the dog.

Out of the Riders that took part in the 2015 season across both classes

6 took part in all 8 rounds
2 more took part in 7 rounds
4 more took part in a total of 6 rounds
6 more took part in 5 rounds
and another 3 took part in 4 rounds.
Probably explains why the average grid size was 20 riders with as little as 15 at Pembrey and a maximum of 25 at Snetterton

Whilst I understand that prospective clubs will look at 2015 race numbers, I think that the average numbers for each race meeting for this year were going to be down the moment that Hottrax put out the calendar, there were simply too many races for most people to be able to attend all of them (hence our decision to be able to drop a high number of races).
Then with the demise of Hottrax, many of us had committed to dates for other things (Holidays etc) and were unable to attend some of the rescheduled race meetings.
However, from what I can make out with the number of people already talking about coming into DD for 2016, the number of existing racers saying they will be racing next year, and what looks like a much more reasonable race calendar, I think that the grid size for 2016 could be quite healthy.
As previously mentioned by several people it would help the committee to have some numbers to work with, so in an effort to help I am happy to commit to saying that based on an 8 race calendar it is my intention to attend all 8 rounds.

I'm desperate to get back on track. .. I'm budgeting for 6 rounds .. might squeeze 7

Will most likely avoid the first round at brands and do the rest
