route for 2012 announced
you only want one nomination as you want that one to be written brilliantly................
stolencar..............i didn't read that anywhere.............is that a guess or fact
I am busy working on my nomination..but not good at words............ i think it's a shame its a ballot first.......but at least if he doesn't get to be a torch bearer I can say it was the ballots fault......not my lousy writting
Seren, they mentioned on the local news yesterday that of 8000 carriers, places are only available for 2000 nominees.
I'm at the first overnight stop after Lands End, but can't see myself going to watch to be honest.
Actually I was wrong about the 50% figure it is indeed 75% going to 'sponsors' as Lord Coe calls them

the best take on this story so far Olympic flame to terrify Wales good 'ol Mash!
I'm thinking of going to see it as there are 4 places within reach of me that I can combine seeing the torch with a day out.

Stolencar.....thanks for that link....they missed that off the publicity material..............
I am feeling gutted now................they want incredible worthwhile indiviuals..............but not as much as the corporate monsters................says exactly what the olympics stands for
I think the logistics of the 8,000 is confusing. Seb Coe comes out and say half are expectedto go to young people. So that's 4,000. While 6,000 are going to sponsors who will probablybe stars, celebs and sponsors employees.
I remember Seb Coe saying that a London Olympics will be the people's games.As ever, never seems to be true.
I'll be carrying the Torch through my home village. It's 0.2 mi in total. Trying to see what's the slowest pace I can run and still look vaguely cool. Think around 14min/mi should be slow enough to eek out those precious seconds!
Nominated by Lloyds TSB for my charity work.
Just saw your profile as being in Caerphilli - he's not carrying it in Ogmore Vale is he?
