OK so here is the poll/ vote thing. You can vote for more than one date if you like and if you have a flexible schedule/ attitude. Other members can see your vote, so be warned. No excessive whinging (complaining) about how a given date doesn't suit you if it is selected (most votes wins), or if you didn't vote. I have missed M&G's too, it happens.
That said this year looks like a cracker year with many new faces and great vibe. If by horribly bad luck you can't attend the M&G - don't top yourself just yet, there will be a lot of big get togethers and mini-M&G's this year (as ever). And as ever, you can do the exact same thing as this and organize your own an another weekend!
In fact I encourage, nay, beg you to do so!
Pass the word and vote! Vote! Vote!
