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.
2009: Accepted - sub 4hr
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?
Will try and get under 4hrs getting quicker but also getting older
2007 In, First Time Ever !!!!!
2008 Nope -
2009 In !!!!!
Wasn't actually expecting a place, was just going to keep applying each year until I either got one or got my 5 in a row.......
Did you bequeath?
Anyone in that DIDN'T bequeath?
Anyone rejected that DIDN'T bequeath?
2008 All in all in a bottle of GIN!!
Really Shocked. I have never ticked the Fleece box either!!!
Wow -shocked. In on a golden bond place last year, 2nd time in ballot this year and IN!
Oh god, all that pain again....

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?
