What date should the annual pre-boat race pub crawl be?
Black Prince organise a pre-boat race pub crawl each year, which is usually held on a suitable day prior to the race.
We tour the pubs along the course on the Thames from which it is possible to watch the race.
This year there are several viable options for date:
Good Friday: Friday April 3rd
Easter Saturday: Saturday April 4th
Friday before the Boat Race and Day of Blondie v Osiris : Friday April 10th
The clear disadvantage of the Friday 10th is that it is not a bank holiday, and therefore turn out for working members of Black Prince and members of First and Third doing PhDs is possibly going to be lower.
So which date(s) would you support?

April 3rd  67%
April 4th  33%
April 10th
Total: 3 members' votes

I would vote for Good Friday, but the website won't let me vote.

It won't let me vote either, but I would vote for Friday 10th April

Apparently Preeyan tried to make the website more gender neutral and this was one of the features he hadn't thought of that would break.

I would like the day before the boatrace mostly so we could cheer on Blondie from our state of inebriation, but not if lots of keen people wouldn't be able to go.

I still cannot vote, but some people clearly can. Does it have something to do with buftie status?

I appear to have voted. Not that I have an opinion on the date of the pub crawl.  I was just interested to find out more about gender neutrality?
I am none the wiser!

Could we come to a decision about this?

I was hoping the website voting function would be fixed, I offer this as an alternative:
