For those who are keen to be on the waiting list, you can drop by at 9:30am 5th Sep 2015.

In the event if someone did not turn up, you stand a chance to replace him/her.

Even if you do not get to participate in the competition, you still get to "Molest" the New Olympus OM-D EM10 II.


Could I be on the waiting list if someone pulls out?
Thank you.

I didn't notice that I had to replace kitaro9202 until now. I thought I didn't get the chance. I also didn't receive an email.

Please give my position to another participant.

Thanks!
