That might be the way that that particular branch picks their guide
pubs, but don't tar us all with the same brush. My branch has a full
vote of CAMRA members that have declared themselves associated with the
branch with regular full re-surveys of the whole branch area (usually
coinciding with the update of the brach guide).

If you aren't happy with the way your local branch decided on this sort
of thing, if you are a CAMRA member, get involved, suggest a new
procedure at the branch annual meeting.

There is also an established system for every member to put the question
to any branch "why isn't this pub, that I think is great, in your guide
entries" or "I went into this GBG listed pub and it was pants, what are
you playing at"
