Gemgemex-sorry I meant we just don't know whether number 200,000 has any signicance or that cancelled applicaton are included. As far I know when the limits reached then the limit is reached.

I still haven't had a confirmation email (from about 10am this morning).

And of course, this time, I didn't write down the confirmation number that came up on screen.

Anyone else still waiting?

I'm still waiting too

No email here, entered at 8am

Ballot now closed

Yes I'm still waiting too

Thanks, glad to hear I'm not the only one!

I'm waiting too, (since 8.50 this morning). Very frustrating!!

From the registration numbers being reported on the website, it looks as if the numbering started at 100,000 this morning.

Re emails, there doesn't seem to be any pattern to who gets them and how quickly. Perhaps there's some ID checking going on? Do people who are already on their database get an acknowledgement faster??

I entered at 7 this morning and i still have no e mail ...spam or otherwise...but have written number down...gosh i know this ballot fills quickly is it really closed now already...hopefully 3rd time lucky ...

The title of this thread can now be changed to 'VLM 2013 ballot closed'!!!

I entered at 09.30 this morning and like many, no confirmation email yet... did get a confirmation email for the payment though (yes, I have donated my entry fee), which does have my ref no on it...

it's a long wait until October....

Entered at 8am this morning, but still not received confirmation email

Bit frustrating!! I am sure I completed form OK?????   

Anyone started getting the mails through yet?

Hey Guys,

This was the first time I've applied for a ballot place. I'm not sure whether I have received a confirmation email...I got an email confirming payment had gone that the same thing?

Turbo - does it have a reference number on it ? maybe prefixed with 'VLM?

I'm sure you'll be fine if they've taken the money

oops, blinked and missed it. the ballot was on my list of things to do today, and only just got round to it. at least i entered brighton as a fall back

btw, the good for age category strikes me as a bit unfair. surely it's easier for a woman to run sub 3.50 than a man to run sub 3.10

Hey gym n tonic,

Yep it does have a ref number...the same one that was on the last page when I entered this morning.

baldbloke - there are people on here who could have that subject as their specialist round in Mastermind. The short answer is yes, you're  right, but it's about numbers - more men who race, race faster, and the converse for women .
