EP will be directed to give opportunity for 3 programmer and 3 driver skills runs for each team at every event.
So for 16 team event - 6 runs - 1 field - 3 minute for each run (set up and reset) - 288 minutes. You can say for MS teams early season none of them will do it - but later season 4.8 hours…
If you have two fields end of season and 24 teams or more - not going to work well for anyone.
Look the point is not to assume every team is going to do runs, but they MUST be given to the opportunity to do. So lunch skills runs late season does not meet that requirement if you are turning away teams. Note, that last point is pertinent - if your venue is continually turning away teams from doing skills runs, that is something to look to improve.
[edit - the criteria in the past is clear 3 programming and 3 skills opportunity for every event. That said venue limitations may very well diminish number of qualifying matches … so for EPs one should be ready to ask themselves can I do both a Tournament and Skills at same event? don’t over extend - not good for teams.]
