    Hi Folks,

    Sorry for yet another feckin poll! :rolleyes:
    But unfortunately it needs to be done.

    If the lockdown is lifted. Would you attend the 2020 GMU?
    Or would you still give it a miss for this year?

    The number willing to attend who'd be staying in the bunkhouse needs to be determined asap.
    The bunkhouse owners may be glad to have it half full (better than nothing)
    However, they might want it to be fully occupied.
    Or even unwilling to open the place at all.

    Once we have an idea of numbers of folk who are still up for it. I'll run it past the bunkhouse owners.

    Even if you're staying elsewhere. Please use the poll & post a comment about where you're planning to stay.
    The total numbers attending could make the difference between it still being a worthwhile event.
    Personally, I'd still go if there was only 6 of us.

    Another angle worth mentioning regarding the bunkhouse folk...

    If it transpires that only 10 of us are still willing to go & the bunkhouse owners are ok with such a small number.
    I think it's unlikely they'd be willing to refund deposits to those that bail out. I could be wrong, & obviously I'll ask the question.

    If the deposits of those that bail out aren't refunded. How would that be recieved?
    Would those that do attend be seen as f#cking up your chance of a refund? Or would you simply suck it up. As being another unavoidable consequence of this pandemic?

    If none of us can go because the lockdown isn't fully lifted. I was thinking of asking if our deposits could be carried over to the same dates next year (subject to you guys agreeing of course)
    So maybe that could be an option for those that don't attend this year but some of us do.
    That way you won't lose your deposit. However, it would mean us committing to the same venue 2yrs on the trot. Which isn't ideal.

    Thought I'd put this out there now. In the hope of avoiding any rows later.

    I can't even remember how much the deposit was, so it could not have been that much. Rolling the deposit over would work, or if we cannot go I would be up for giving the deposit to the bunkhouse as it might help them stay afloat ensuring the venue remains available in the future.. Not sure how others feel about that?

    That was my thought process behind not asking for a refund Wessa.
    Carrying the deposits over means they don't have to part with the money in refunds this year.
    I dare say they are struggling & us offering to do that (if required) will be well received.
    However, I don't think we need to go as far as relinquishing our deposits completely mate.

    As for the actual amount. I think it was the right side of £15 each?

    I know that I won't be coming, I don't even have a bike right now but if there is way of rolling forward my deposit that would be cool, but to be honest in the greater scheme of things £15 is not that important either way for me.

    Yes, I'm still up for it.

    I'm also happy to relinquish my deposit if required, if that meant it help keep the bunkhouse business afloat for future use.

    I won't be going as I'm in a fairly risky group and getting the corona virus could be dodgy for me but if it does go ahead I might ride down early one morning and do the days ride. I haven't paid a deposit anyway so the owners can keep all the deposits for me. :p

    9 votes for Yes & Privateers vote equals 2 (himself & Lynne)
    Not all 9 votes are from bunkhouse folk. But it's a very promising start after just 3hrs. And in my book it's enough to call it a GMU, albeit a very small one.
    I was slightly concerned that more of you would bail out. Thankfully that isn't the case :)

    I reckon that if we can get to 15 in the bunkhouse. There's a better than even chance the owners will still be up for it.
    Fingers crossed for more Yes votes :)

    With less numbers in the bunkhouse, you could maybe convince the owners that it allows for some social distancing ;):confused:
