Before we begin today's poll, a couple quick pieces of business. First, no posts tomorrow or Monday. (Happy 4th of July to everyone who is celebrating!) We'll be back on Tuesday, and the 2nd quarter damage poll will be coming up on Thursday, so dig out all those receipts.
Today, the usual...

Bois des Iles
Cuir de Russie
and Vol de Nuit (of course)
Some other contenders...
