Q. How many CUK contractors does it take to set up a poll.

None.

Don't do Friday nights away from home (and am out of the country for two of those). Will be going to Thursday drinks 5th August with my wife, though.

I'll be there as I'd like to meet the saint who married you. If the 'official do' was a week or two later that would be great, but I could do any Friday.

WFS (apart from the out of the country bit)

As usual, If it's on a Thursday and I'm available then I'll come over :wave:

Personally I would prefer a mid weeker. If we can choose a Thursday night with the premise that we know that out of towners will make the effort to come into London then that works for me.

Still not sure how we'd spot Spacecadet. Do you still wear bandages?

The Bashes have always been on a friday to make it easy for those out of towners to come to London.

I don't expect people to lose a days income just to come to drinks on a Thursday.

Regular drinks are Thursdays but the big bashes have been on Fridays up to now.

Not sure if I can make it but, as the 13th had four votes against none for the other dates, I voted for that one too :)

I should have said 6th or 20th? I'm flexible on all dates really.

Think I'm good for 20th. Others are a possibility.

Given the general lack of interest, would those who said they could do the friday, make Thursday?

It seems as though most of the attendees are London based(ish)

What do you think?

Any final decision on the date, as 13th August is this week?

I think the lack of interest says it all.

I wouldn't be able to make this week anyway, due to general lurgyness.

I'm still ok with 13th.

But does seem to be :tumble::tumble::tumble::tumble::tumble::tumble:

:tumble: indeed

I think it best to leave it and have the weekly drinks on Thursday as normal (if someone wants to post about that this week) and knock summer drinks on the head.

Yes. But I need to know whose coming. It will take some effort for me to get to the big smoke and I don't want to turn up and find myself sat with a four eyed geek nursing a half of lager , an anorexic bird with a stammer drinking a diet coke and a fat, balding bore with an aggressive streak and bad taste in music!:tongue

:spel who's

That aside, you never know who's going to be there until you're there. You sound like you wouldn't watch a film unless you knew what the ending was :eyes

P.S. In case you haven't seen it, in The Sound of Music they all get sent to a death camp and gassed - the cremation scene is awesome :happy
