|Should the website be rebranded?|
Andy Pickard's long-promised BPBC website is yet to appear. Martin loved working on the website. Bufties post more, and more often, than current students. Race results from major races aren't uploaded. Technology has moved on. After a lifespan almost as long as a Chem Eng PhD, is it now time to relaunch this website as BPBC's site?
Further to the you perform better when you're losing but not by much thread, which do station do you prefer at Bedford Amateur Regatta?
Those with no Olympic tickets are gearing up for this Friday's second chance sales, while those with some are crunching the numbers from their credit card bills to work out what they've got ahead of the e-mail on Friday confirming the outcome. If you know, or have a good idea, vote now.
|London 2012 rowing, I will be watching...|
This should help those of you undecided as to what to get tickets for. Once you have applied just fill in an option, and hopefully others from FaT/BPBC will be there and join you. The codes supplied are for the different sessions, as found on the 2012 website.
|I'd rather be at ...|
|Against which event(s) would you prefer to have the annual pub crawl clashing ?|
There's rather a lot of other racing around the date of the boat race (26 March), and the crawl will have to clash with something else.
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?
There are lots of gentle bends left out of the options, but all of these require more turn than an Australian spinner. Which one do you like best?
Which of the following will we win/will happen?
|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.
|Where shall we go on training camp next year?|
Every year, the men (and potentially the women) go somewhere exciting for pre-Lents training camp. We've had Nottingham, Seville and Chester in the last three years, all very special in their own way. So now where? State your (multiple) preferences!
|How long will it be before Gonzalo breaks his vow of celibacy?|
Gonzalo has explicitly stated that he is going to be celibate this term...how long will this last?
Having decided which party to vote for at an election, you discover that the selected candidate used to row for LMBC. What do you do?
|If there was a General Election tomorrow, for whom would you vote?|
|As per Julia's request, should the next FaTTBC vs BPBC multisport event be touch rugby?|
Touch rugby is a superb game played by men and women together and, though not widely played here, is the largest participation sport in NZ. For those unfamiliar with the game check out this for a basic intro:
|Whither FaTTFC vs BPFC?|
This year's 1st & 3rd vs Black Prince football match was less competitive than in previous years. This may be a consequence of BPBC having gained more recent graduates, leaving 1st & 3rd somewhat disadvantaged. How should the fixture be run in future years to keep it competitive?
|Who will do best at the (W)HoRR?|
Clearly there are different numbers of entries (400 in HoRR, 300 in WHoRR), but going purely on places, which result do you expect?
|How Many Headships?|
The four men's crews currently hold their respective headships. How many will the club hold at the end of the week?
|Lent Bumps Net Gain|
What will be the net gain for the six FaT crews racing this week? Rowing over head of the first division counts as +1. Voting closes Wednesday at 12 noon.
|Where will be the best place to watch the bumps from?|
With just over 3 weeks until bumps, where do you hope to be keeping your eye on the racing from?
