I'm still pissed off that Victoria has STILL not received the Panda bicycle she won on JC10
And she had to work to win it too. It wasn't a game prize.
Yeah, it has been quite frustrating, but, one of the folks, either from Positive Legacy or Zero Hero stepped in and has facilitated procurement of the bike. In fact, Victoria was told this past week that it was being shipped. So, fingers crossed, maybe, 16 months after she won it, she may be receiving this elusive bicycle...I think part of the problem with the prizes is that I think they are generally donated by sponsors and C9 isn't directly involved with distributing them to the cruisers that win them
If there is one thing Jam Cruise could have done differently here, I wish they had just given us the tickets on the ship. I am like obsessive compulsive about planning vacations. Every thing down to the smallest detail is planned months in advance. Bags are packed 2 weeks in advance to make sure nothing is forgotten.
We went to Jam in the Dam a couple years ago. I literally packed our bags early enough to realize a passport was missing. we had enough time to secure another passport, and make the vacation, because that is how far in advance of a trip I pack my bags. (on a related note, if you ever lose a passport, Fastport Passport http://www.fastportpassport.com
is AMAZING!!! They really can do everything they claim)
It is scary to be getting on a plane, flying across the country, renting a car, driving hundreds and hundreds of miles, to hope I have tickets waiting for me when I arrive. I really wish they had just given us the tickets on the boat. I guess they dont want people reselling them. But if they gave them out on ship there would be no question as to what kind of tickets people won.
For instance Waka has Wednesday Arrival tickets, Thursday Arrival Tickets, and Friday Arrival tickets. we've never been told which type of 'arrival date' tickets we have. I am hoping for thursday, otherwise we will be hanging out outside the gate for a long time :/
