All I can remember of the committee was Uwe, Mick, Richard and me.
The committee came up with the location and left the rest to the drones.

With 20 responses, the most popular destination for next years meet is Moffat, with 13 people placing it as their #1 choice.  The second most popular is the west coast of Ireland, but only one person placed it as their #1 choice.

If the event were held in Moffat, 17 of the 20 respondents would attend (10 definite and 7 probable).  The remaining 3 might attend.

As a benchmark, of the 20 respondents:

8 would travel to Yorkshire Dales
7 would travel to Wales
6 would travel to the west coast of Ireland
6 would travel to the NW200
5 would travel to Belgium
3 would travel to Bavaria

I'll keep the survey up for a couple of weeks, but it already looks as if the committee have won the day, despite the collective IQ of the committee members being below the melting point of Potassium.

i have no argument with the NVM being in the UK, thats seems the most appropriate, and the best way to get the maximum number of people attending. (that defines National imho)

any other  rides (including outside of the UK) are best done on a seperate basis.

and as far as a National meet is concerned, i'll go anywhere Nationally. my decision is based on 30% what i'd like to do and 70% on a meet up with people wherever it is. no point in hair splitting over the destination....no one is going to take us anywhere terrible (although i draw the line at a tour of Milton Keynes)

but we have no commitee on here as far as i know, (and don't need one) and i certainly havnt been to any official meeting, so its a bit odd saying there was a meeting,  with no one informed about it.....if there is a commitee, what did they decide about the ride wev'e just done 
:027:
iirc, it was an independant decision by Myself and Sylvester to get the ball rolling in the absence of anything else being put forward

there isnt usually a big fuss on here anyway about where to go, seems to depend on 1 or 2 suggesting an idea, and being available/up for it, and most are happy to go along, thers nowhere in the UK thats out of reach to any of us.

I think that the reference to a 'committee' is very tongue-in-cheek.  It's just a bunch of drunken reprobates coming up with the basic concept.
