    Yes, our Sector's communicator informed us of the incident and asked us to look out for falling spectators!

    Yes, that is true. It is Sector 3. (happened on Friday, as far as I can remember) They were hungry (of course!) and came over to my Sector to ask for dinner! Poor souls. The food delivery crew screwed up big time.

    We didn't get our food until 8.30pm I think. The next day we all took more food from the mustering area just in case

    There was also the case of the locked porta-loo. The contractor didn't unlock it until afternoon on the second day. A lot of comms people were radioing race control to get it unlocked. One sector was more resourceful. They decided to just break the lock.

    same here. food arrived at 8.30pm. not too sure if this is the actual Food Run or the delivery is late. while waiting, we just chew on the energy bar.

    as for the porta-loo... we just walk over to One Fullerton

    some of the guys even got coffee from Starbucks.

    Wah so shiok! Pee in style. We were at SRC and they had a problem with us using their loo. Not member cannot use. But I was in great distress and I begged them so they allowed me in..One of my team mates was not so lucky. Access denied!

    Bro, you forgot the SAF cookhouse guideline?...cooked food should be consumed within 3 hrs of cooking. You know the actual time those food at mustering area is cooked bo? If I tell you I think you will get a shock...those bento cai peng is for immediate consumption at sign on, not to keep until 5-6pm I hope your urgent distress seeking toilet was not because of that!

    if i'm not mistaken... i think the dinner on saturday is spoilt. the chicken and the vegetable tasted sour. i threw them away. had to settle for energy bars instead.

    i heard people complaining about this over the radio-chatter. but looks like everyone made it to marshaling on sunday... hahaha.

    i believe we should ask emily for clarification because i believe most would have taken photos including your own sector's group photos

    if even photos posted online not for commercial purposes are to be also taken down would be utter rubbish

    Looks like a blanket email to cover their ass. No details or guidelines provided at all. I've asked Emily already but I'm not expecting a response.

    If you look at the reportage and sports gallery in ClubSnap, you will see many threads started by spectators who took shots during the event. Do they have to remove them too? Or is this request exclusive to volunteers?
