Parallell Runway? Or even an X/wind one? There's plenty of room there and all you'd have to do is mow the grass and roll it a bit.

You could dig up and drain one rwy while using the other, and alternate them in poorer conditions to allow them time to recover?

Just a suggestion.

Yeah a good few heading on up I reckon, including myself. Weather dependant but that's not possible to predict at this stage, at least with any degree of accuracy anyway.
