Group Build 2021/2022 Poll - Round Two

Right gentlemen here's the second round of voting to decide the three Group Build subjects for the 2021/2022 season

I've selected all those subjects which got into double figures in Round One and I've combined two subjects, WWII Gunships and Gunships  on the basis that if Gunships won then you could still do WWII Gunships if you so whished. I could equally offer an argument to keep them separate have decided to merge them after some consideration.

You have 5 votes, you don't have to use them all, and the Poll will close on 23rd April

Voted, and yes, some difficult choices to make.

Thanks for running with this, Chris.  Third round if the vote is too close to call?

BTW, thanks a lot, Chris, for your work.

What medium of exchange would you prefer?.....coin of the realm, Merlot, nubile wenches, book tokens,  more accessible storage space, twiglets..............

I was never a Boy Scout, but "be prepared" is still a good motto so we currently we have a tie for third place on 13 votes. I will let the poll run through to 23/4 but I need to start considering what to do if we do get a tie. I've so far thought of three possibilities, but I'd obviously like to hear your views on the matter.

So, option 1. Organise a run off vote over 3/5 days or so ? If we get more than 4 possibilities for the 3 places this is what I'll do, but see option 3 below.

Option 2. Have 4 GB's next year (5 inc. the One Week Build). Each GB would still run for 3 months it's just that one season would give you the choice of taking part in 2 GB's. Bit unwieldy, but could work.

Option 3. Probably the most contentious. Take the votes cast in round one for the subject and add them to the votes cast in round two.

So thoughts, suggestions ?

Second, but given the whole "one a quarter" schedule, a "no extensions" clause in the rules to keep it on schedule. Just my $///.02
