Just checked my bank a/c and my cheque has also been cashed today although I have stated that I will bequeath my entry.

From memory during past failures to get an entry the bequeathed cheque has not been banked until December time.

Can anyone else recall whether the cheques are all cashed at the same time or whether there is a delay between the banking of entry cheques and bequeathed cheques?

Not clutching at straws or anything!!!

My cheque has also been cashed! I bequeathed my entry also.I would be interested to know if in the past the bequeathed cheques have been cashed later than the sucessful entries.
I am so excited!

Mine has been cashed too, now I'm wishing that I didn't bequeath my fee.

I think that if your cheque has been cashed now it means that you have been sucessful on the following principle -

If you have 150,000 envelopes all with cheques in you would firstly pick out your 100% sucessful entries and cash the cheques. You would then go back to your pile and pick out your 1000 places from the bequeathed envelopes. With the envelopes that are left (this would probally be around the December time) you would return all unbequeathed cheques with a 'Sorry..' letter. Then last of all you would cash the unsucessful bequeathed cheques.
If you didnt do it this way your admin staff would be trailing through piles of already opened envelopes etc not knowing what happened to the cheques etc.

So in a word - I think we are in!

Mine has been cashed too !! Hurrah !
I don't think I had confirmation of my place until December last year though.

(I don't think I bequeathed my money this time !)

Mine too has been cashed, but I also bequeathed my entry fee.

I like your thinking Polabear - here's hoping!

Cashed but bequeathed........fingers crossed for good news in December. :)

Not sure it folows that even if you bequeathed, if your cheque has been cashed already you're in. There are 4 of us in my office who entered who also bequeathed and all of our cheques have been cashed. Find it hard to believe we are all in but fingers crossed anyway.

Bearing in mind there are only actually 2 places up for ballot after good for age, 5 times turned down etc... Mightn't be looking too hopeful!!!

Mine has also cleared. Bit of a dilemma brewing. I had been planning a skiing holiday leaving on the 12th. Hmmmm, what to do? I also bequethed, so perversely, I almost hope I didn't get in.
