It's October 1st... and whilst there doesn't appear to be a definitive date stated anywhere of when the draw will take place, it's supposed to happen in 'early October'.

So in anticpation of the draw I've decided to set up this thread, I'll keep the this first post updated with a list of who has and hasn't been successful... so post away... Have you been successful? Have you been informed you've not got a place? are you tapping your fingers on the table waiting to find out?

I've been doing a bit of research, it seems like those who bequeathed their entry fees (i.e. paid for entry and are happy for the money to goto charity if they're not drawn in the ballot) are, on the whole, recieving their fleeces and rejection today.

It also sounds like the acceptance mags are starting to be sent out (according to a postie) and should hopefully be received by sat.

I'm yet to hear of anyone, anywhere, who's had the funds deducted from their account.

Good luck to all that are hoping for a place for FLM09, I was going to take a charity place but can't guarentee that a) I can raise the money and b) get time to go to it.

Fingers crossed at least some of you get a place, it would be brilliant if you all did though :)

I think the way Edinburgh have done it this year is better, first come, first gets a place. No need to ballots you just pay your money. I understand London has a huge demand but if you really want a place you just wait on the website and buy your place when it comes online.
