End of Year Survey Results

The results are in, and much thanks to all of you who participated in this first ever survey. I know there were many questions with just as many varied answers! It was not an easy job sifting through all the data as 145 people took part in the survey .Some responses I had to cancel out, like when asked which costume was a favorite and the answer was "all of TRIBE" as I was looking for specific costume choices.

For transparency you can take a look at all the response data in spreadsheet form HERE. In collating the top three responses however, I tallied the total number of responses to get a hierarchy ranking,though in some cases there was a tie. Without further ado here are the TOP THREE results:
