    Peter, where do you have to answer these questions if they have not been asked? People have to know if they go or not and not at 8am on Seaturday.

      It didn't ask me...

  • Peter

    No. You have to have answered the questions about map, microspikes and conditioning affirmatively in order to move from the waiting list to the going list.
