It'd be slightly tricky in some ways anyway - I'm fairly sure that the only real interest in the Open competition in Yorkshire relates to its status as a team containing 'everyone' from round the county. Much more than enough 'general' chess.
However a full strength Yorkshire open team would obviously rather tend to squash minor county level competition. A pure friendly vs GM is a little more tempting as there'd be less travel and it'd be (more than?) a proper test if some of the 3C's people joined in.
That would be excellent, maybe we could get Alan Walton to captain both teams
Not sure who would be captaining the Yorkshire teams, although I'm sure the committee would be delighted if Martin wants to volunteer.
