Well,  I guess I am the official keeper of the HAWKBRAWL (the BRAWLmeister ? )
meaning I ran the two that have happened so far (yes there was a HAWKBRAWL '92
for those more recent of the converted), and have the algorithms, and all the
 stored votes. I managed to pass the info on to fofp once when he did the
tracks poll ( a task I deemed impossible !) but I'm not in a despaerate hurry
to either do one immediately or to pass on the info (it takes a fair bit of
explaining to setup).  I mean we had a three year gap last time !! Also
I'm real busy (I have a new daughter, three months old, something  I never
really advertised to all and sundry),  having said all that, maybe I could
be convinced a little later in the year, so how about bugging me again
in a few months ?? That or if demand really grows to a fever pitch 8-)

What I'd like to try,  (again not just now) possibly is either a poll
on the solo and side project albums, or possibly a poll of the most
common "HW-like" bands/albums that come up frequently here (Aamon Duul,
Ozrics, Monster Magnet, Procupine Tree etc.)
