  1. Good move, I had the 3 & 5 Sapphire editions and to be honest, I’m not sure it was worth the cash. I’ve had the 6X Pro for about a year now and am super happy with it. I’ve used my fēnix watches as day to day watches since the series 2 came out and they’re the bomb.
  2. Sometimes my Edge takes longer to update to Discovery than the fēnix. Not sure why. I usually sync a couple of times and Discovery gets the message.
  3. I’ve also got loads of teddies. There’s a children’s home in Bryanston that will take them. I’ll get the name and post it as well. My girls have also grown out of about two bags of cuddly stuff. Apparently they’ll also take previously loved toys. I’ll get the details.
  4. So I mailed CHOC today, they don’t take them anymore. They suggested that I get in touch with Reach for a Dream or Rainbows and Smiles. I’ll get in touch with both this weekend and check who’s keen to take them. I’ll then post it here!
  5. Awesome, I swim 8 Mile Club and Ride for them. Thank you.
  6. I have around 100 medals from various events. It’s hit the stage where our coat racks rattle, my daughter’s door rattles from her medals. They seem to be everywhere. With the exception of a small handful of the things, I’m keen to get rid of them. I’ve heard of a charity that gives them to kids who reach milestones in recovery from illnesses etc. Any ideas of who they are and how I can get my medals to them?
  7. I really really need a decent helmet that fits. For some reason Rudi Project (L) amongst others don’t fit me anymore.
  8. Those were the bomb. I loved those when I had them, really comfy!
  9. Hello Hubbers, It's been a while since I last posted anything to do with Midmar 8 Mile Club. In fact, I've been begging for money for CHOC for so long that last year I put all the required cash in myself (around R20K), in order to give everyone a breather from my persistent fund raising. This year is a special 8 Mile Swim for me as it marks my 5th entry into this event. I've set my target at R50,000 and have to date managed around R20,000 of this. I need another R30K In years gone by, I've swam 1 mile for every R100 donated, but work has precluded me from putting in that sort of time in the water. So this year, I decided to do something different. I will match every donation, up to a total match of R20,000. So, if you donate to CHOC, I will match your donation, simple as that. You can follow this link: https://kydrin.co.za/goals/763 and see that I've already matched around R8,500 this year. Some of the donations that I matched do not show up on this fundraising website as my employer has agreed to match any donation made by a staff member. So those who I work with will have had their donations matched twice. In short, there's another R11,500 or so that I will match for anyone who wants to chip in. Please help Hubbers. Some CHOC stats for you: 1736 Children in their care CHOC offers basic necessities such as Carebags, nutritional support (food parcels) and bereavement support to the children and their families. 2 448 bed nights to 2514 individuals CHOC accommodation facilities offer a home away from home for children and their parents/caregivers during treatment and follow up visits. 435 families receive psychosocial support The psychosocial team bring much needed support to children, parents and family members, as well as support to the medical and nursing staff. So go ahead, let me match your donation. Please, I really need to get to R50,000...
  10. They won’t cancel them and convert. Discovery paid FNB almost R2b for the credit card book. They’re not just going to give it back having paid for it!
  11. Same with the swimming. I swim Midmar 8 Mile Club every year and I get the same points as I would have if I’d swam only a single mile on each day. As an aside, neither myself or my wife have had points allocated for gym or workouts for the lat three days. Exercised every one of those days!
  12. What a load of crap. It just gets harder and harder to keep the status up. The cost is also heading north steadily!
  13. Mine’s OK, but I see my family is now required to produce 100k points to maintain our status when it was 90k last year.
  14. I’ve got the black card and I only get 42.5%. I think I need to do a whole lot of questionnaires to increase the discount
  15. Thanks all, that's what I thought, but it's been a while and one hears stories.
  16. Hello Hubbers, I'd like to do a ride from Riverside(where they start the Park Run) shops to Emmarentia and back on Sunday morning. We'll go past DHL/Pick 'n Pay. I know this is a little hot spot for crime, would three of us be safe at around 07h00?
  17. Does anyone know if the healthy gear and healthy device paybacks work with the old Discovery Credit Card. Still haven’t migrated and I need new running shoes and a bike computer.
  18. Black decals and it’s a 29er And she pretty enough...
  19. Hello All, Anyone have a spare entry to Sunday’s Old Ed’s 10km/21km Vitality Run?
