  1. Hopefully some positives might come from at least two of the changes - Biden has signed off mandatory pre-flight testing and mandated masks in Federal places, but as we can see (via the tennis players) even a pre-flight or landing negative test may result in the person being positive at day 3, or 7.
  2. As far as I am aware she won at tennis in the dark ages. But you know, giving tennis players exemptions to rules is pretty in vogue at the moment 🤣 She did this - does this count? https://www.smh.com.au/national/margaret-court-s-church-set-up-consulate-for-anti-gay-african-regime-20200302-p5465m.html
  3. Also, it is difficult watching as other states are playing normal (WA, QLD to a degree and the NT). When in NSW we suffer the consequences of allowing people to come back home, allowing in freight, or allowing diplomats/military to come in. I can understand how the Victorians feel right now, hardest lockdown in the world now they let the tennis players in. I genuinely feel for them.
  4. Where you land, unfortunately for us, the international hub for the east coast is Sydney. I noted in another forum when I used to live in Melbourne that apart from NZ most affordable flights ended up including a domestic leg to Sydney.
  5. We in NSW are taking the largest share of overseas arrivals. It takes ONE leak, ONE careless act from the QT system and we are back to snap border closures and cancellations of events. Glad you are happy with that, but some of us would like to; Be alive and healthy. Get on with what we had planned to do - I am at the tipping point of cancelling our honeymoon in TASMANIA, as they (like Victoria) lump my 0 case LGA with all the hotspots (not to mention we have not had a case since at least July 2020, not to mention the ENTIRE wedding as MY OWN PARENTS may not be able to get home if w
  6. I was a Stackhat kid 😆
  7. Make sure you have read the race maps and know where you are going! Swim - I think most races in NSW these days are rolling starts due to 'rona (or limited groups/pairs), so no big crowds to deal with, but if you feel nervous at all, hang back or to the side to get some space. Bike - Enjoy the ride. Practice drinking (and eating if you need) on the bike. You want to make sure you don't wobble or swerve while trying to drink Run - Practice running off the bike, your legs need to learn what this is! Make sure you know how to count! I've had people come in after what the
  8. Yeah depending on the club and grade you are in be prepared to come off. 🤣 Last time I did crits was 2018 and someone nicknamed C grade "crash grade" think they were turning over 1 spill every couple of weeks!
  9. The Obamas were just as affectionate as well. I love how that other guy left early. Some corners reckon it was so he could take off and land in "Air Force One" as the name would have changed to something else as soon as Biden was sworn in. 🤣
  10. Yeah, add a review, people need to know how much trouble you went through. #helpabrotherout
  11. I've not had an issue with them either. We used them to book all the way though Switzerland, Germany and Austria. In Australia, I use them to search and then book directly if available, but with a lot of places the online booking is through one portal or another anyway, and I don't need to call them, which takes up their time. Edit: Reviews disappear off booking.com - a place I stayed in while in suburban Melbourne has reviews dating back to 2019. I stayed in 2017 and my review was scathing, mainly as I copped bed bugs (oh god I think I am itching now at the thought). Do a look on G
  12. That above is the official date it should have been designated as a pandemic. It crossed international boundaries. It took TWO months. By about Feb we had people coming back from overseas not coming into the office on company advice. The Chinese massage places had signs saying that none of their staff had been overseas and were not displaying any symptoms.
  13. Not for PayPal. There is for Active though 🤣
  14. Yeah, that seems correct, every time I run a refund for the Club Races via PayPal they refund the fees they take as well.
  15. If it works like the Fuselage (Shiv) then some water remains in the tube so easy enough to get fluid. Only issue one reviewer found was difficulty in refilling, seems to be hard to put in and remove, but if you are doing IMOZ or Husky courses that is a god send 🤣 @BNothling much the same here. Even though I only use for water, it's valuable.
