I'm against as well, I don't think it's practical. If the bids were
made by chapters, rather than "local teams" (which are really just
informal groups of people that aren't particularly well defined), then
it might be possible, but that isn't the case. Perhaps in the future
we'll be able to make it a requirement that bids are made by chapters,
and then we could consider things like this, but I'm not sure chapters
are widespread enough for that yet. Give it a couple of years.
This year we have three bids, three countries and three chapters. There is
no time like the present to try it out.
Yes, but the bids aren't actually made by the chapters. As you well
know, the leader of the UK bid isn't even a member of the UK chapter
