But don’t you have to have 3-board rounds for this? I thought that with normal Howell movements it was OK to omit the last round. Perhaps I am wrong about this.

3-board rounds are the norm in small clubs with 6-8 tables.

I can understand that when they play Mitchell, but Howell schedules (which is what this thread is about) for 8 tables means 15 rounds or 45 boards with 3 boards/ round

My experience is that few clubs fancy more than 27 (or maybe 28) boards during an evening session?

3-board rounds from what I know are the norm for clubs with 5-7 tables. A full Howell for 8 tables you better play with 2-board rounds. You can play 30 boards in a full Howell or set up a 3/4 Howell with 13 or 14 rounds with three or two stationary pairs. 3-board rounds in Howell with 8 tables only makes sense when you need a lot of stationary pairs or when you want to play a lot of boards for club master or the like.

Our club game is always 24 boards.

If we get 8 tables with play a Mitchell with 3 boards/round and bye-stand/relay.

With 6-7 tables (more usual for us) we play a 3/4 Howell with 3 boards/round.

With 13 paris, we often use the H7RVR-S movement. This is a bye-stand scrambled Mitchell with 4 boards/round, but the rover pair bumps EW for 2 boards then bumps NS for the other 2 boards. And there's an arrow switch for everyone in the last round.

Our preferred movements are here:
