FLM 2009 are you in?



  • Yes I did this year (not last year).
  • I've also got nothing. But a friend who lives only a few streets away got his magazine and is accepted which strikes me as odd. oh well - maybe tomorrow for us who didnt get anything today? Not sure I can wait until next week.
  • Got my acceptance letter today Number in the 8000's odds were better this year because they didn't fill the full number of ballot places

  • SO it seems rejected bequeathers and accepted bequeathers have heard. Have rejected non-bequeathers heard anything? That would leave a lot of accepted non-bequeathers still to hear (maybe tomorrow???)

    Hope I'm among them!

  • i did not bequeath and i have my 4th no

    roll on 2011 

    not doing charity again it is too stressful to raise money

    Here i come FLM 2009, got the accepted mag today in the post. I didn't bequeath, and no money has been taken out of the back, yet.

     so thats:

    2001: Rejected,

    2002: Accepted,

    2003/04: Rejected,

    2005: Accepted,

    2006/07/08: Rejected,

    2009: Accepted - sub 4hr image

  • Does anyone know if there's a way of finding out how many times you've been rejected?  I've moved house several times and have lost some of the rejection letters. I'm pretty sure I'm guaranteed entry next year but have no proof.  Do they keep a note of rejections on computer?

  • Hi folks

    Was lucky enough over the past five years to have been accepted 4 times

    Didnae bequethe

    Or in the long run I've been lucky 6 times in 14 years

    but turned down this year Bah

    but fairly confident I've gained my Clubs entry


  • 4th time lucky.....1st time I've not bequeathed!!

    That was a nice surprise.

  • Friends had got the reject mag on Thursday. Then I came on RW and noticed that acceptance mags were arriving on the Friday. Logic - I hadn't got my mag yet because I was in!

    Got home yesterday - no mag.

    Went for a run this morning to loosen up for Run To The Beat tomorrow - I'm still a bit stiff after the very challenging Dunstable 20 Mile Challenge on Sunday. Then I've hung on for the postman before niping down to Wetherspoons for breakfast.

    Rustle, thud. The mag has arrived.

    It's thoughful of the organisers to put the news on the outside so you can see straightaway the result. No having to fumble with nervous fingers trying to tear open the plastic bag.

    Is it worth reading it? Or shall I shove it straight in the bin?



    And damn.

  • And damn again.
  • And one more damn for luck.
