I do, as much as I enjoy the 11 pt matches, think it takes too long if there is no doubling involved. Some that play either do not like to double or, surprising as it may seem, do not understand doubling. But you never know how long it'll take. I've played in matches that took 2 hours and some that took 20 minutes. Maybe the 11 points does scare many away. We elevated to 11 points because we were struggling to get 15 players and this is what the players wanted. However, we still struggle and as noted by Tossy, the start gets delayed making it tougher.
I like City's idea too of Gathering Ts. I've not seen them either but maybe once or twice and will suggest this.
For the moment, we will remain as is, but shortly I will put a poll out to see what the concensus wants. I encourage everyone to participate in the poll.
