Re: C&C Rendezvous 2013
We have let the poll run for nearly a month and the results are in.
Publishing the actual results via the fluidsurveys.com website would require a paid subscription. That seems like a waste of resources so I will take the liberty to summarize the results.
We received 40 legitimate responses. For some strange reason, not everyone completed every question. Even stranger, one person wanted us all to travel to Savannah and buy blueberry pie.
Block Island - 8
Mystic - 6
Clinton - 5
Stonington - 5
Greenport - 5
"Other" - 10
As to the write-in votes in "Other" that would not affect the results, one vote each for:
Anywhere accessible by car
Any port except Clinton
As to the write-in votes in "Other" that would affect the results, one vote each for:
Stonington, Mystic, Block Island, in that order +1 for Stonington
Block Island, Shelter Island, Milford, Branford +1 for Block Island
Block Island but I fear it may be crowded 9/6 9/8 +1 for Block Island
Any prefer Stonington or Mystic = +1 for Stonington
These "Other" votes change the top two totals:
Block Island - 10
Stonington - 7
Weekend of event:
Sept 6-8 - 13
Sept 13-15 - 12
Other - 13
"Other" write-in votes:
Those who wrote in "open", "any", "either", etc. - 4
Those who wrote in a date in "July", "August", or "before Labor Day" - 4
One vote noted that "Sept 13-15 is Off Soundings, will be full", I count as 1 vote for Sept 6 - 8
Sept 6 - 8 seems to be the winner here.
What to do with the money:
Bring Rob Ball back - 13
Donate to a local Charity - 8
Other - 9
"Other" write in votes:
Give to Stu - 5
Bar/Party - 3
No suggestion - 1
Rob Ball is a clear winner, and again, anything left over can be given to Stu and/or a local charity. Maybe we can do both. Hat's off to those who voted with their liver, kindred spirits are we, first rounds on me!
Keep it at $35 - 25
Raise the price - 13
So my math says it's Block Island, September 6, Rob Ball, $35, be there or be square.
David Risch was kind enough to contact Rob Ball and it sounds like he will be able to make it.
For those of you who can't bring your C&C, ferry service is easy, you don't really need a car on Block Island, and could easily park it at the ferry terminal on the mainland.
Maybe, just maybe, some of us who are 1/2 a daysail away might volunteer to sail some attendees over (weather permitting)?
I will contact a hotel within walking distance to Great Salt Pond/The Oar for a group rate if anyone is interested. Please email me.
Block Island is glorious in September! Great Salt Pond is easy in/out, I'm hoping we can all get our for a sail on Saturday afternoon.
