Amsterdam, Lisbon, Bruge, Venice, Warsaw...i'm going to stick a pin in a map
Well it's great to get what you wanted. Happy days, and someone else got the place. The rugby lads will appreciate your support. 😉
That wouldn't have made the slightest difference.
PFO using a German address
Anecdotally, some German colleagues all told me when they used their German address they were successful and when they used a non-German address they weren't - I'll cede to your insight though!
Yep, me too with the Q time. Definitely the way to get in. Everyone I know in the lottery got rejected. Obviously a lot of interest for the 2023 race, maybe they have post-lockdown deferrals still in the system, although I haven't been tracking their policy.
See you there, hopefully.
16% chance of lottery last year - about 4 times the chances of getting into London, but still stacked against you. There's no separate application process for 'locals' so unless you're a conspiracy theorist, the address is irrelevant. Condolences on not getting in all the same, it's not easy but there's always the tourist route.
Amsterdam is two weeks later. Highly recommend it based on my experience this year.
Frankfurt would be my choice. 29 Oct. Takes the "Dublin Double" out of the equation but that's definitely a good thing.
That was the initial plan but two of the group have entries to Dublin that they would like to use, so ideally the mahjong would be 4-6 weeks before Dublin.
I got in on the lottery after years of trying! Flights booked. The date doesn't really suit for work but I'll make it work.
Anyone done wolfsburg previously?
Looking like a good alternative option so far.
