  1. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    It appears that AA7 and Cranky's age group's efforts at Moo was not worthy of double points. Also there appears to be a few issues of which people are in which age group. Spotted a few discrepancies. However, without wanting to be held to account I have attached the rough calculations including the Gong results.

    Ah, right. Well, mainly because I was keeping an eye on cranky and AA7 qualification races. They are moving into your age group. Somehow because of a couple of things you posted re your race results I sort of knew your name. As to the FB picture part of your name on your suit was visible and it's kind of memorable.😬
  5. Private health, who are worth a gander?

    Friend had a neck injury - always said Medicare was enough. Self employed, no income protection, waitlist for operation was 18 months. Lasted 2, before he found a surgeon who would do it for 20k. He said that was how much he would have paid if he'd had private health cover for last ten years. It works if you do put aside that money to cover unexpected health issues. Maybe some people are that proactive. Not too many would I think.

    Nice photo of you smooching some random after the race on FB πŸ˜‚
  8. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    Happy as the cats lying on my lapπŸ˜‚πŸ˜„ even though safety first was my motto on the bike (usually my best leg) I snuck into 8th position. With those aging up and one aging out that gives me 10th points (subject to final audit 😬). Conditions were definitely interesting, but I take windy wet any day over hot humid. So that's it, my points racing is done. Done enough (pretty sure) to qualify for both. There are advantages to getting older πŸ˜„. i would not consider myself a particularly spectacular swimmer, but honestly, I am surprised at people who either don't know how to sight, or don't bother. One rather speedy lady kept zig zagging across the front of me at a rate of knots. Once almost straight across the bows. I actually stopped to see if I'd drifted seriously off course but no a few minutes later she had turned and shot across the front of me again. I would have loved to see how far she actually ended up swimming

    Yeah, they pay almost as well as police health

    the following is worth a read on a doctor's take on BUPA's drive towards an americanised health system: https://www.facebook.com/fred.betros?hc_ref=ARRH6iJHreZIuwtln-e6GWGEcfm582teAF6ULKeEYYbC0MRZ8de4qjMFMLqDbRqJsik

    Have they rejected the warranty claim yet?
  13. Who's trying to qualify for itu worlds?

    There is a bit of grey there. Either preference given to the athlete who completed the most races, OR the athlete most likely to do well. So even if you have five races and are sort of average, they will or may give the race to the athlete who has only maybe done 1 race, maybe championship race and placed highly. TA decision is final.
  14. List of events
