    poll it is - one vote per person and only vote if you intend coming along.

    The poll is open for 21 days only to give everyone a chance to see and take part

    Pointing out the obvious; May the 5th is a Bank Holiday, which may influence matters.

    There's an "either" and a "neither" option but not a "both"? Anyway, I can do both at present.

    Preferred weekend...

    We would prefer April - but can do either in theory.

    Mark and Norma

    P.S. Could we bring the hounds? :smile:

    I can make either, but voted for the April weekend to avoid the Bank Holiday.

    At least two people appear to have voted for their unintended day - luckily, they appear to have cancelled each other out :wink:.

    I can do either/any at this point and will probably hire a cottage for the week further north depending on the long-range wx forecast...

    Surprised the hotel is empty for the Bank Holiday though. People probably better start booking as soon as the results are in to make sure we get it all (or most of it).

    Tally ho. Bob.

    I just voted for Mapril as I would not be available in May.

    Looks like we are heading towards April.
    This meeting seems to be attracting less support than previous meets, any particular reason? It seems to me that (ignoring the vagaries of the weather) this should be one of the better venues that we have visited.

    Its April for me.

    I don't think I would have the patience to go out with a camera on a bank holiday. I will probably end up being arrested for 'Car park rage' or 'Que rage'!

    I counted thirteen names so far Dave, and there are a few that have expressed an interest, such as Simon Galley. I am sure that some are finding it a bit early to commit as yet. Hopefully the numbers will creep up as the date approaches.

    regards

    Stoo

    I would prefer April, bank holiday would be too crowded!

    It's April for me too and it would be very useful to have an idea of numbers fairly soon as I have arranged to see the hotel owner when I return home sometime around 12 the December to let him know approximate numbers.

    The traffic will be less of a problem in April,

    The poll is set to run until the 4th December, so the result will be available then.

    I am wondering how many of the 6 people who preferred/chose the May date would NOT be able to make it in April.

    If really 7 people (6+1) can't make it on 4-6 April (=30% of the group), then should we not re-vote on some alternative dates?

    Best,

    Delphine

    The dates were (I think) those that the hotel is available on.:confused:

    I can do the earlier date, and I rather got the impression that most could.:smile:

    It is unlikly that we will be able to satisfy everyone.:sad:

    If there is a problem; just blame Frank.
