Is there a reason why Back of Beyond is missing from this poll? 
Despite the vocal minority taking an issue with Tim Martin, Back of
Beyond does offer a lot of good points which have mattered to SCLUG

- Some members have not attended in years so keeping to same
venue/timings is an advantage.
- Low prices for food and drink at Back of Beyond make the meetings
accessible to more people.
- Back of Beyond has a huge selection of drinks whether you prefer
ales, lagers or ciders etc.
- Back of Beyond has no music or sound from TVs, so it's generally easy
to hear each other speak.
- Back of Beyond is a very large pub with plenty of seating.  This has
allowed us to move tables and chairs to accommodate the group at times
when we've had a larger number of attendees.

It appears to me that the survey is skewed - guiding people to indicate
a preference for a louder, craft-beer, venue.

So quite a good response to the poll. the vote was 60% to go somewhere 
else. so trying to see where to go then. I realise that this survey
is not a true ranking system but this is the best free service I could 
find to do the job.


I will leave it open for a few days till we have a reasonable number of
responses. So get your votes in. If other wins we will need another
