Annual Awards Survey Results
The results from the annual awards party survey are in. We were asked to leave the survey open for as long as possible but as people are now asking about the results and how we are going to act upon them we decided it is time to share the results.
It is not a massive sample I'm afraid, and it is clear from the data that some people repeated the survey several times to emphasise their point, which is a shame.
Anyway, here we go!
There are some interesting contradictions among these results. For example, it seems that people want an evening party, in black tie, at a Point-to-Point course somewhere - which would make a lot of work. A marquee would need to be sited on flat ground which would limit the choice of venues. It also seem as though there is a sizeable group who would happily opt for something more casual, perhaps immediately after a days's racing at the end of the season.
I hope that these results prompt a discussion about the format for next year's party. Feel free to leave a comment but remember to be polite and respectful.
