I agree that simply having less of something doesn't make it better.

Perhaps I should clarify my intent.  By fewer, it was implied that the
extra time would be spent ensuring that each event was as successful as
it could be.  My concern was whether we were over committing on our
capacity to support and host test days.  If this was the case, I'd
prefer hosting several really good events, instead of a lot of poorly
attended test days.

Of course, if it's not the case ... then no action required.
