Post by: tc2324 on January 08, 2018, 02:13:03 am
Hi all,

So just to let you all know the following dates for the poll set up, voting and Whiffie Award Show.

W/C 5th February the polls will be set up and posted, (dependent on work). They will run for 2 weeks only.

W/C 22nd February the polls will be closed and the bribes can then roll in.....  ;D

4th March is Whiffie Awards night.

Hope that all makes sense?  :thumbsup:

It all makes perfect sense. Thank you  for your organisation of this event!


Is the Bristol Freighter Aerobatic Group to be booked as the pre-ceremony show this year?......and is there a dress code for those attending?

Can I NOT be seated next to the toilets this year?
Or if it's unavoidable could there at least be doors on the stalls?

OK, I'll get one of those mini-Vulcan cannons that Rambo carried. I may need some extra calories to lift it though..........  :o

Are all categories up?
I think "Best Multi Jet" arrived after I'd voted for the rest.

Went and voted by my usual "because I like it" standards-

That wasn't the easiest 45 mins I've ever spent!  :o

I'm amazed at the amount of stuff us lot have produced in just one year, AND they were only the ones that got nominated! What a busy bunch we've been, eh?

Funny you should say that, so did I.

And this time I voted on one and it wouldn't let me add any more, no matter what I did.

Post by: tc2324 on February 09, 2018, 07:05:33 am
Some of the polls are a little `samey` so it may be a case of deja vu if that makes sense?

Kit, did you vote 4 times the first time round or did you only cast 3 votes. That may explain why you could only vote for one more?
Title: Re: The 2018 Whifie Awards Show Chat
Post by: PR19_Kit on February 09, 2018, 07:28:45 am
As far as I can remember I voted 4 times first time around, but the 2nd time after I'd ticked one box I couldn't tick in any others, so I just hit the 'Vote' button.

Some of those categories are difficult to decide on what to vote for

I object!
I tried, in the spirit of Robert Mugabe to vote many times but couldn't beat the system.  If Kit has managed it and not me then I demand an inquiry.

Hi all,

The 2018 Whiffie Awards show will start at approx 8.30pm GMT this Sunday.

As always, may I ask you to wait until all awards winners are posted up before responding.

See you there.
