    Not been in 43 years, so I'm going to raise a hand for Bath.

    I like Lewes but Grahams concerns about size are probably correct, I reckon on about 10 pubs of PuG crawl standard plus 2 or 3 wildcards, a good day out all the same. I don't mind Bath despite a couple of visits in the last 3 years.

    There are a maximum of 14 options on a poll for dates,and looking at past history March has often been the first crawl of the year,with two more recent "first of the year crawls" in April.Avoiding February would really suit me ,so maybe poll for dates in March and April once we've sorted out a venue ?

    I'm not sure I can manage that these days! I reckon Lewes would do me nicely.

    Avoiding those dates mentioned by Mark too (especially March 15th and 16th) if it's Bath or Cardiff! And Easter weekend is the last one of the month.

    I think experience has shown us that doing anywhere south in summer is likely to lead to heat exhaustion, for both both crawlees and beer. It's best done either first or last in the 'three a year' rota.

    Cardiff is a bit of a trek by any mode of transport from here.

    I'd support Cambridge again.

    My new job gives me all of December off (paid ) so I've a calendar to fill too!

    BUMP.

    From reading back through this thread it seems the options mentioned are Bath, Cambridge,Cardiff and Lewes. How about a poll for the venue first,and once decided a poll for the date in March or April avoiding Easter but allowing for consideration of date issues if the chosen venue is subject to rugby,horse racing or rail replacement problems on specific days ?

    I've posted it. I've done them all before so happy with wherever.

    I'm happy to organise Bath as I know it well and have a crawl ready-to-test in a fortnight with a couple of pals.
