    Under the headline of "New National Contest for 2012?" (note the question mark) 4BR reports that "the first formal discussions have taken place that could well see a brand new national competition return to the contesting calendar later this year".

    The contest is described as a new event at the former Pontins site in Prestatyn, currently under refurbishment and now under the ownership of the Britannia hotel/leisure group. Hints are that it'd be aimed at Sections 1-4, and of a two-legged test-piece/entertainments format (which sounds rather similar to the current Championship section setup at the Butlins championship).

    Something to be welcomed, or is it the wrong time to be re-launching such a large-scale event? Or is it too early to say? It does strike me that it's a big event to organise (and generate the necessary interest in) for later this year, if initial talks are still taking place.
