    HILARY TERM: Sunday 17th January - Saturday 12th March 2016

    Friday, 18th March, anyone?

    For the record I voted for Oxford and Huddersfield, I would prefer the latter in the summer but whenever It would be a lot easier and cheaper on a Saturday, but then I suppose that will kick off a Friday bias.

    Can we at least agree that if Oxford is chosen for March ,then the summer venue is in the North ???

    As Will points out only Liverpool,Leeds and York have ever been visited by the PuG crawl in the 5 years this has been going on.That seems wrong to me if we are talking about a fair distribution of venues across the country which I understood to be guiding principle .

    The votes on the poll are multiple per person. Oxford seems to be basically a destination people want to do anyway, so if we then pick the two from the North with most votes, we can schedule them in.

    So how about the following for 2016; North - South (Ox) - North in that order? That gets North closer to parity by the end of the year in terms of the three 'zones' and means ROBCamra has less to moan about it is important to try and be equitable over the medium-term.

    Of course, if we had any Welsh, Irish or Scottish peeps who wanted to get in on the whole PuG crawl thing...

    Not much scope for a decent sized crawl in North Wales. . That's why I voted for Chester for my 1st crawl with Manchester/Stockport as another option.
    Shame I missed Liverpool.

    Fridays probably suit people who dont work full time anymore,

    Most people who travel on a regular basis will know that it is always more expensive on a Friday.

    I do work full time and work a half day on Friday but get payed for a full day has i have worked the extra hours on Monday to Thursday,so i will never book a Friday off to do a pub crawl.

    I think the point is that people prefer a Friday as it means firstly that you don't have work tomorrow or need to take an extra day plus there is the option of staying over and exploring further. There is also a plus that the weekend remains for those with family commitments. I work full time and Friday is the best day for me.
    Ok, maybe just for one......................

    Thats fair enough and seems to be par for the course for most, but doesn't necessarily work for everybody.
