When it comes to the public being allowed on course again, I wonder if tracks will face an interesting problem?Say we adopt the Irish rule of no more than 5000 at a track at any one time.Many smaller tracks in the UK never seen 5000 in attendance at midweek fixtures but these same tracks also have a hard core of annual members.Hence, they could follow the 5000 rule and just allow their annual members in, which would be fine.BUT, that isn't as profitable as cooperate entertainment. Hence, they might first prefer the cooperate to their annual members. However, they cannot because annual members have already paid!If they preferred cooperate and refunded annual members I'd bet they would lose most of the latter.So, it might end up as a test of their loyalty to those of us who go racing all the time!
I think the best system could be...
Annual members have to declare up to 2 weeks before whether they will be attending.
Get an exact number how many spare tickets there shall be.
Flog the rest to corporate?
If no takers Joe Public.
Suits the members in the long term, they will want the course to make the maximum possible amount surely?
