    I like the question they ask -

    "Q. What is the cost of an adult full season coarse fishing licence for 2008/2009?"

    Incorrect though. It's a ROD licence for coarse fish and trout.

    Pedantic maybe, but it's a legal stipulation that the question has to be asked and that no more than 10-20% of the entrants could answer. Only fair therefore that the wording is correct.

    Mind you, a 2 acre lake, all to myself.

    Could stock some nice barbel in there. [img]/forum/smilies/disappointed_smiley.gif[/img]

    I've been following this with interest.

    A couple of points:

    tThe small print says that if they do not get the 43,000 entrants they want, they will give the money to someone drawn from a hat. Minus their expenses. So what expenses have they had for this? A little website, a few press releases? £10K?

    No, they are going to take 35%. Yes, 35%.

    So if they sell, say 40,000, they will cream off £350K.

    It's a win-win for them alright.

    Also, I have been following the number of entrants. It wascreeping between 13 and 14 thousand for the whole of August, then in the last few days it has miraculously leapt up to 25,000.

    I believe it's gone international.

    It's recently been on the local news (South West) so that's probably why the numbers have shot up.

    It would be interesting to know who is going to do the draw and who is verifying it etc.

    Tempting though, isn't? [img]/forum/smilies/smile_smiley.gif[/img]
