Got to be option one !!!!!!!
The runs (so to speak) are what its all about......and option 3 does'nt have a run.

And if i went for a full blown party night, as with option 2, i don't think a run on the sunday would be the best idea for me :oops:

The reasoning behind the options came about because every year many have commented that its such a shame to just head for home after a very enjoyable xmas lunch and in such amicable company, so option 1 was suggested, but rather than break up the party atmosphere to begin again later it was thought that option 2...the continuous party night may be more suitable, if option 1 or 3 have the majority vote then those wishing to continue the celebrations can stay over at the Premier Inn and enjoy a run on the Sunday. (that's not to say you can't join in on the Sunday run if you don't stay over)

I fancied option 1 as the Riverhouse is always very good with loads of space for Santa :D
Usually find food at party nights is disappointing.
Thought it would be nice to adjourn to neighbouring hotel to continue the festivities.
Also a nice refreshing run on the Sunday :lol:
However as that option is losing out ,can I opt for 3 instead (anyone who wishes to stay over can still arrange to do so!)

Can I put in my tuppence worth - I think that if it's not an overwhelming win for the party night then the traditional lunch would best suit everyone - wouldn't want anyone to miss out on the Secret Santa - only drawback would be not having a run on the Sunday which would be nice.

Since it was a draw (Dot changed her mind) I have booked the Riverhouse Restaurant for Lunch and those wishing to extend the party can join Linda & I at the Premier Inn / Pirnhall Inn afterwards.
An Impromptu run... open to all staying over or not, will leave from the Pirnhall Inn on the Sunday 10.30. :D :D :D

For Menu and event details see...
http://mx5scotland.co.uk/events.php?event_id=160
The Menu is identical to last year but with such a large choice who cares.

Hate to be pedantic, but Dot didn't actually change her mind, she voted for option 1, said she had changed her mind and once option 3 was confirmed as the winner booked her room straight away.

So was option 2 not really the preferred choice of more that half the people who took the time to vote :?:

Nope...16 people voted.

Remember 50 people attended the Xmas Lunch last year, so I had expected a little more than 16 votes. Although understandable for the festive time of year, not really surprised the overall vote for the Party Night was not greater.
Even if Dot had not changed her mind and because the vote was so close, it would still have been the fairest and right decision to select the Riverhouse for Lunch, thus allowing the majority of members the opportunity to take part either way.

ps I voted for the Party Night too.

Democracy Rules! Unfortunately, living 10 minutes away precludes us I am afraid... applying common sense as we see it! :shock: Look forward to driving in convoy on Sunday though :)
