    I pretty much planned my day around sending an email in at 7pm...and I got distracted :(

    Sent it at 7:03pm. Hope it's enough as this beer sounds damn tasty.

    my hunch is it will be no problem. lots of people seem to forget... who were planning their day around it. So you know there are plenty that didn't care THAT much that blow it off, or totally forget. That said, no way i was goign to risk it. Alarm went of at 6:55, had the email open and the time.gov open... hit send at 6:59:59 and it went out 2 seconds later. Thank god for slow 3g... 4g lte and i'd probably be out of luck :)

    Look at the Facebook page and see for yourself that this club is full of people that aren't capable of reading details in an email. I wouldn't lose hope just yet.

    I really hope so. I named my soon to be born son "110k OT batch 6", and I'd hate to disappoint him before he's even born......

    The thing is we're expecting, in our heads, that every Catador member is as maniacal as we, the BA's, are. But you have to figure at least 1/6 of the club are just fans that follow on Facebook etc right? And then those in different time zones at work, people with kids to put to bed, I just don't see sending one at 5 minutes after 7 being a death sentence. *crosses fingers* lol.

    Agreed. I really wonder how many are even on ba and didn't someone say that only 2/3 (1050) even opened ccb emails according to ccb's calculations which I assume is from return recipts

    I sent mine a few seconds after 7:00, some happened with my email and I'm not sure it sent. I sent another just in case at 7:05. Neither email has showed up in my sent box so I'm not sure what happened. Oh well I'll just wait and see. Cheers!

    It said you "could" leave it empty but didn't say you had to. I put my name in and I did the same for the extra FI bottles.

    Relax guys, I am sure it takes time to set everything up with the 3rd party website, sort emails, eliminate those trying to cheat the system, etc.

    They said we'd know today, and there are still about 11.5 hours left to meet that. :)
