Against which event(s) would you prefer to have the annual pub crawl clashing ?

Siege!
Imagine you have angered a group of antisocial youths while out on the river - for example, you have broken their fishing line and they demand retribution. They follow you to the boathouse, where you quickly jump inside and prepare yourself for their arrival.

The hoardes arrive, armed with bricks, stones, and possibly knives. You look around to see what you could use to defend the boathouse. What do you do?
Pick up a blade and charge.  0%
Run out holding a backstay in one hand, a clam in the other as a knuckleduster, and start swinging wildly.  13%

What is the maximum sum of money you would be willing to spend on club Stripy Trousers (women included)?
The official 1st&3rd club dress comprises a pair of Stripy Trousers like the ones the Men's Captain swaps over with the incoming captain at the Mays dinner each year. It is a great shame that apart from the Men's Captain only a very few Bufties own a pair of Stripies these days and so it would be fantastic if we managed to produce a new batch of them. Previous attempts to do this have been hindered by large production costs (cloth needs to be made + trousers tailored).

This poll is aimed at finding out how many people would be interested in purchasing a pair of Stripy Trousers and at what price such that quotes can be obtained from manufacturers. For the ladies, there are ideas to introduce Stripy Skirts, so please place your vote too!

Options are indicated in Pounds Sterling.
