Has anyone had confirmation of the free experience day

Has anyone who preordered the Mark II received their confirmation of a place on the free experience events (zoo, Lake District, etc).
I applied for the Lake District one with Steve Gosling. Although it's a long way to travel I would love to go on a photo shoot there with Steve. I saw a couple of people mentioned they had got acceptance for the zoo day on the Facebook group.

Re: Has anyone had confirmation of the free experience day

I received an email on 15/11:

Dear Photographer,

Thank you for your application to the OM-D E-M1 Mark II Experience Day in the Lake District.

Unfortunately we have been having some problems with our automatic confirmation emails that are supposed to send after application.

This email is to confirm that we have received your application and we are pleased to say that you do have a place on the Lake District Experience Day.

We will be in touch closer to the time to confirm your serial number and final details.

Best Regards,
The Olympus Image Space Team
www.olympus-imagespace.co.uk

Might see you there!

I've applied for Marwell Zoo, but not had any confirmation - so no way of knowing if they've received it.

I've had the same email as Harbrimar for Marwell... it arrived about a week after pre-ordering.

I do now have confirmation- but only because I nudged them.

Re: Has anyone had confirmation of the free experience day

I had confirmation of my Marwell day, but it went straight to my Spam folder so it took a few days to find. I know of several others who have had it do the same so it could be worth checking if anyone else is still waiting

Re: Has anyone had confirmation of the free experience day

I booked in for Kew Gardens but have heard nothing. It's a great shame this process seems to be a bit hit and miss as it's an excellent idea.

Re: Has anyone had confirmation of the free experience day

I had a confirmation email that said they would check my camera serial number closer to the time and then confirm places.

Re: Has anyone had confirmation of the free experience day

After chasing I've had confirmation for Kew Gardens.

The email I got from them confessed that there have been problems although they seem to suggest that it was mainly due to emails going into junk folders. Certainly in my case that was not what happened.

So it's worth a chase if you haven't heard.

Re: Has anyone had confirmation of the free experience day

I have had an email re confirming the invitation to the Marwell Zoo event asking me to send then the serial number of the MkII camera - I get the camera on Tuesday or Wednesday next week.

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? )

I recieved the same email as DerekW asking for my serial number, even though I have registered the camera.
Received the email 17:00hrs, bit late in the day, so you might expect something say monday.
