I´ve given up on the dream to visit a HP set … I´m neither eligible for even entering a contest nor am I a member of a fansite (those people are so lucky sometimes :) and I am not a member of the press (a lot of reporters don´t give a damn about HP – it´s just a job). That´s the way it is. I´ll just have to wait for set reports and use my imagination.

I completely agree with Hannah, i is so unfair that people from around the world cannot enter. If it is for costs then it would be cheaper for people in england like me and hannah just to get a train rather than being flown, so it cant be becase of that.
Harry Potter has just as big fan-base in the UK so i cant see why they would limit the contest to the US.

I think i am going to send an e-mail of protest. I encourage anymore non US citizens to do the same!!!

Yay! I would just love to take my kids to see the set. What an awesome experience this would be.

This is exciting. I’ve entered… though I’m sane enough to understand that I won’t get it. Haha. Oh well.

I know some people are upset that it’s just the US—and I do agree that there should be contests where it’s open to the world (and this one is one of those times). But other countries do have contests that are just for them—and everyone complains then too. It happens. But I’m not going to wait for the next “UK Only” contest and complain about it.

Anyway, good luck to those who entered.
And to those who couldn’t enter—sorry.

luciusgal: do have your husband enter using his e-mail address and you enter using your e-mail address. I assume you would take each other if one won. They just don’t want one person making up 20 e-mail addresses to better their chances of winning. Good luck!

hericus – That is quite true that if you won the lottery you could pay to see the set, but just winning this? It’s like the lottery. You get chosen out of a like jillions of people. :)

I ruined my chances though! I signed under my email and then my sister’s … :( Grr.
