    As we are already in June I've decided to run the poll for two weeks only. Yes, that's only 14 days, so please feel free to bump this thread from time to time.

    I will restrict this poll to one vote per person and I would appreciate it if you could only vote if you intend on actually attending.

    Brian, just thought I would mention that October the 3rd has been pencilled in for the Ilford Factory visit.

    I have voted for the 10/12th, but can do any weekend in October but the 17/19th.

    Well I have gone with the 17th to the 19th. I do hope this weekend is favourite. The 10th is too near the Ilford visit, and the 24th is too near November, in which I wish to go away.

    Hi, I've gone for the 10th as that suits me best but the other weekends are not too bad either so I should be able to make it whatever is decided, being retired helps!

    All the best for now,

    Neil.

    As the next Ilford factory tour is the 3rd October I'm planning to be in the UK, so I'll vote for that weekend.

    It would make a lot of sense if the two events were linked, particularly as Anglesey is not far from Mobberley.

    At this distance, I can probably make any date so I'm voting for the 3rd in support of those going to Mobberley... (the fact that I am in the "reserves" has nothing whatsoever to do with it of course)...

    I'll probably shoot up to the Lakes for the week afterwards as I'll already be over half of the way there :smile:

    Can I vote again? I think on reflection Dave had a valid point here that others have picked up on and old Mr 'Speed' here took his time :confused: !

    Well, can I change my mind and vote for the 3rd?

    Well, you can but not in this poll. I've tried to get the moderators to change the settings on a poll before and they simply don't have ability to do it. So the best I can do I'm afraid it abandon this poll and start a new one. If this is agreable with everyone I will start a new poll on the weekend where you can vote for all the dates that you can actually make. I would also suggest that you post a message to the new thread stating your preffered dates including any dates that you cannont make. In this way we can identify which dates can be attended by the most people.

    Go for it Brian. We can then vote for all the dates for which we are available and then see which is the most popular weekend.

    Indeed... I think it is the better option. Allowing people to vote for all dates they can make rather than just the one preferred date makes sense. Oh yeah, possibly relevant: school half-term is 22nd October to 26th October so the weekends either side of that may be busier than usual.

    Cheers, Bob.

    Dear all, I believe that I can make any of the dates. So I prefer not to vote since I am indifferent.

    Best regards from hot and humid Michigan,

    Delphine, It is probably best if you do vote, even for all dates, in the forthcoming new poll. This will give some idea of the numbers of people able to attend each date for accomodation purposes. Barry
