    No problemo, Canew bro. At least the volunteers will have a rough picture of how things will look like on race day.

    Yeah, regarding the training, they have more than one session on Sunday.

    I think the Sat training all the same, from 1-5pm

    All those who are going on Sun, please bring camera and take lots of pics to share here!

    Just a cautionary note regarding the side effects of the super bright lighting on volunteer marshals...not sure if you all read the straits times sports report last week about the singapore Olympic atheletes who will be competing in the games, and one of the experiments that they carried out was to expose the singapore atheletes to super bright light equavalent to daylight brightness during the night in order to reset the athelete's cicadia (not sure if correct spelling) rhythm so that the body clock will somehow be 'messed up' in a way that will put them in favour of the Games timing.

    In the same way, the SUPER BRIGHT F1 lighting system is going to have have the same effect on the volunteer marshals and may aversely affect the body clock, and cause them to be unable to sleep properly. Any expert on cicadia rhythm and bright light exposure can confirm this or not?

    I think it will be quite funny to wear sunglasses at night, hahahaha!

    mohgui, you want to meet up on Sunday before proceeding to the F1 pit building? I will be taking the MRT, so I will alight at City Hall. Maybe we can meet there and walk to the F1 pit building together.

    The lighting system is VERY VERY VERY VERY x 10000 BRIGHT. Even with the camera so far away, the camera is unable to properly adjust the exposure for the F1 lights, it goes to show just how insanely bright it is, dunno whether all singapore f1 track marshals must wear sunglasses at night bo? hahahaha!

    So how? The girls in your training class got cold feet already? Do they look like they are now scared of the job as a singapore F1 volunteer marshal? Hahahahaha! That ang moh fella is good presenter lah, much better than the singapore senior marshals, really know what he's talking about...and the way he present is very alpha male personality, I like! KNN, I want to be in his sector, confirm plus chop you will sure go home in one piece with no worries after the F1 race, I think he's really the type of sector marshal to look after those in his team, can see from the way he talk..

    Kiasi, I'm a little worried about your opinion of women.

    To all,
    I was in lecture room 3.2 on Sat. Didn't go on Sunday coz I'm communications and don't need the training. Anyone in the same class?

    I'm not sure if you have ever been to sepang F1 race before, there are no women track marshals as far as I know. I don't know if the singapore women marshals are naive or they really know what they are in for. All those in my group also share the same opinion, I'm not the only one with that opinion, hahahahaha! They couldn't even climp over the metal barrier, hahahaha!
