Re: Forecast looks good for Marwell tomorrow

I've just checked my "goodie Bag" but can't find it, who do I complain to?

make sure one doesn't lick your camera, happened to me on an Andy Rouse day (many years ago) and it made a disgusting mess - great experience though :)

Re: Has anyone had confirmation of the free experience day

I've been told I'm on the Marwell day and that I will be contacted again, but no further request for the serial number (maybe the fact I have already registered the camera has done the job? )
