That's not much ahead of the current schedule so it misses many of the
benefits of bringing it forward by a more radical amount. I was
thinking more in the region of having the decision made 18 months
prior so the successful team has at least 6 months to assist with the
upcoming event. That means bids in by the end of say June, with the
decision made in July some time.

Cheers   :-)
