  • Yes, I was successful for both days but will only be going Friday so Cheltenham will re-allocate my Saturday ticket.
    Here’s hoping plenty in here were also successful...

    • Lucky sods, enjoy! I'm hoping Taunton put some tickets on next week so I can have a wee road trip.

        Is that the meeting on the 10th ?
        I’m keen to get to that one myself...

            Yep, I had a flick through the upcoming list and it was the only track i've not ticked off that wasn't having an AW meet!

            • Bagged me a Tingle Creek ticket today - delighted!

              some still available if anyone is interested.

              • Infections from pubs never accounted for more than 5% of new cases, so perhaps what I'm about to say isn't relevant, but there's no way Cheltenham is going to see a Covid spike as a result of people back out drinking. We've just been out for a few pints and it's like Pyongyang out there. Places not letting you in without a utility bill to prove you live in the same household - not letting people in who don't order food before they sit down - even sitting outside, we were moved on after 2 drinks when spaced apart from anyone else and causing no risk whatsoever. Very, very strict. All positive re controlling local third wave and Cheltenham though.

                  R for me
                  R for my brother
                  P for my misses

                  all got tickets for the Friday and Saturday.

                    A, my mate also got one who is a J. Think it's unrelated tbh!

                    Would be curious to know if they've just picked whoever is closest though. I actually heard anyone be unsuccessful!

                    • Thanks, mate of mine with a W was asking as he hasn't heard anything

                        Three mate and me all joined this year and were all successful for Friday and only one of us were unsuccessful for Saturday, we all live 120-140 miles away from the course.
                        I think it’s likely to be concern about infection that’s keeping people away...

                          We live 12 miles away, but the poster above says he’s 120
                          miles away. I think it must just be purely randomly generated for the ballot.

                            I'm 14 miles away... you must be close!

                            Maybe random, I'm starting to think they didn't even get that many people applying. Not that I'm complaining

                            I only applied for the Friday, was going to Cardiff on the Saturday but that's looking unlikely now should have gone for both!

                              I'm a 'H', i'm not really sure that it makes any difference, i live 16 miles away and haven't heard from anyone that was unsuccesful

                              • All sounds very good news re the festival. If things continue to improve and the vaccine process goes smoothly we can all look forward to being at Cheltenham in March. Bring it on !!
