Actually... what was offered was 400 walkabout tix (38 bucks) to lucky volunteers if they register at the counter at USS.
So it's not F1 tix for ALL..
total YOG volunteers 20000+.. tix 400. do the math lah

ahem. who said dun have?

its a lucky draw. must sign up and put ur name during the RWS one.
400 volunteers will go.

how i know? i won it :think:


anyways, i think the volunteer welfare is already very good. buffet every day. (still got icecream), food vouchers if ur outside, rws (plus 10 bucks give u spend) and i even got an F1 ticket. and its not a walk abt ticket. i got the grandstand.
i'll urge those that posted here to kindly rethink before commenting. just because someone said, and u decide to not check before posting, and u might end up making a big mistake urself... dun jump to conclusions so fast

there was 400 to be won, but many never get...... i wonder those who got the ticket, how they got it?

what i know of, the tickets will be posted to their home..... one even complained they were watching TV instead....

? its a lucky draw. i didnt even know i was supposed to win.
i just one fine day, received a letter "on government service" then had my name.

open up, a letter telling me i won and congrats. i have no idea that i would win.

i think it is more likely those volunteers think that if they write their name on the list and they sure win... cause no one promised anything. i didnt even know i won until the thingy came up my house

agreed to it.

but from another view, the volunteer who claim to got a promise that they will get the ticket but never received, dun they have a right to at least voiced out??

its really how the message was announced...

From what i managed to gather from the following threads, its like the volunteers heard they were promised F1 tickets but didnt know it would go into a ballot where 400 would get tickets. They thought just need to register can liao. Thing is did they listen to the whole message or only what they wanted to hear?

There is a difference between saikang warriors and volunteers. volunteers volunteer with option to quit while saikang warriors are "volunteered" usually by management and quitting is not to be taken lightly.

for both, often will never see the management in charge unless got visit by high profile VIPs then everyone start to wayang.

eg, how many teachers actually accompany the students on CEP/CIP projects like donation drives and so on unless got press presence?
