European Constituencies would be a good start.
Wales, Scotland, N. Ireland are the others of course.
No point in making them small areas. Even if one place has 500 people and the other 50. It does not matter, that's how 'area clubs' end up.
Even the size doesn't matter as they can split it down internally between them once they find out how there area works.
Splitting Wales in to North and South may seem a good idea, but then people in the middle (not many I assume
) would be in both. The South would probably go to the Bristol events and the Northerners.. well being the real Welsh people wouldn't go anywhere else anyway
I'm sure they could decide themselves if they wish to travel to the north or south for a jolly ride.
I just see it as a way to tidy up talk and get people living near by a place to meet up and consolidate their efforts.
When I was an Orienteer I would join my local club, run under there tag and you meet the local people and organise with them, but there tended to be part of a bigger area club over them.
I figure we are starting the area clubs here. Not the local clubs as we do not know the interests or central localities.
