Oldhammer date poll: Result = 9th/10th of August 2014

After taking all things into consideration a BOYL2 date of 9th/10th of August was announced by the Organisers. Thanks to Orlygg and Weazil.

Re: Oldhammer date veto.

:roll: All dates vetoed by at least 2 people! You can't please all of the masses all of the time I guess!

Re: Oldhammer date veto.

Well the Bank Holiday is the 23th/24th/25th. I am fairly sure that this date too will be a no go. Family commitments and heavy traffic being two likely culprits for many of us. Additionally, we better actually check these dates are good with the Foundry to. There is no point discounting dates unless we know for sure they are available.

Re: Oldhammer date veto.

Good points. Let me know if you want me to contact Bryan. He did suggest this whole chunk of the year was available but I haven't discussed specifics with him.

For personal reasons, I also put a veto vote on the bank holiday weekend, as if I'm not actually on holiday, I'll probably be up to something partner-related.


Last time we discussed this we discounted the Bank Holiday due to the difficulty travelling at this date. And the fact that there is always family stuff. We moved the date from the end of August due to Gaj's wife's anniversary but now have a problem with Erny's son's birthday being at the second preferred date of the 16th and 17th of August. And yes please, please do check with Diane about availability of the Foundry in August/Early September as communication is so much easier in person.

Looks to me that the choice will be between the 2nd/3rd or the 9th/10th of August, or something in September. Considering that a large number of us are teachers, myself included, the August dates are going to be the most attractive!

Re: Oldhammer date veto.

*UPDATE* Well, that's just awesome. All the dates were vetoed in a couple of hours. I have expanded the time-frame as much as I think is prudent, it looks as though it may be the date with the least vetoes rather than a date with zero vetoes so remember to put your reasons in a comment if they are really important. Editing the poll has reset all the vetoes so we are starting from scratch, as of 1730 16/11/13.

Ultimately, the date depends on availability of the Foundry and its resources.

Yes, please note this poll is 'unofficial' and is purely for the community to notify each other of 'can't do under any circumstances' dates for a get-together weekender.
