Discover Durban with RCB : Selecting the winners

We have mentioned to all the fans that you will be in charge and responsible for the fans that win. This is of course true but just need to clarify with you that we will be monitoring the working of the recommendations on every application.

The Community Managers know your work, we need your help to identify the best 3. The fans will write recommendations to help us figure the best 3 out. What matters here, is not the number of recommendations but the quality of the recommendations and who they are coming from i.e. if they are coming from real/old fans who actually were present when you helped RCB - because that is what will count.

Also request all of you to ensure that you have your passports ready. We will be announcing the winners to the contest on the 3rd of September and on the same day itself we will need the winners to send across their passport and necessary documents. We will require this for your travel and to ensure the visa process goes through smoothly.
These are the documents we request everyone applying to the contest to keep ready with you, so you can send it through to Bangalore on 3rd September
1. Valid Passport

2. Three Photo's with white back ground

3. A covering letter from applicant - addressed to Visa Officer, Consulate of South Africa, Mumbai

4. Personal bank statement - last 03 months with bank seal / In case of a student parent’s bank statement / Fixed deposit or some document to prove financial stability

5. Proof of accommodation - residential address, permanent address proof.

If you have any doubts, let me know. For those of you who haven't applied yet. - Apply to Discover Durban with RCB

A group formed will be harmful to this site...We need a true RCBian who will work for the RCB...And not for his /her personal interest..its my kind suggestion...!

I took some time and read all the comments..
As raghunath sir experienced the probs in results of FFC1. I experienced it during FFC3..

Anyways my concern is about selection process.
I think raghunath sir's idea of selection is marvelous. Its u who have to consider the efforts of the fan and give them. This voting, reference system never can give the genuine fan a gift for his loyalty, Comments, and the useful and worthy comments, worthy blog, something like this should add points in results,

I think the mods should consider both the content of application and content of reference..

Reason :
You say u consider only references from old loyal fans. If the fan is old and loyal. Don't you think he would have participated in this contest?
Don't you think he will have the strong urge of winning it.? Why will he or she pass worthy comments? The only case is barter system. You give me one, I will give u.. :)
(PS Not always, there are some exceptions)

If and if you mods have time. Go through the application and give preference for both content of application and content of reference. Something like 60 - 40 weightage.

(I know it was difficult for you to go through those apps for FFC3, at least now try go through the 10 to 15 apps which have come in. :) )

Let the best fan win it and enjoy the journey :)
