  6. So does that mean if we miss out on a badge, we don't have to pay? :?

  8. No worries Sen Ney I just get sick of going along to these sort of rides, pay my money (which is spose to include a pin) only to be told they didnt order enough pins and you miss out but still have to pay to attend the ride :)
    if thats the case, I'm sure I can find a few nice roads out that way to my own way :)

  13. John Pigot was a great man, and a good friend. The stroke foundation is also a very worthy cause. I will hopefully be there.

  14. I may be staying at my sister's place that weekend. She lives in Mt Evelyn at the moment. What would be the best way to get from there to where the ride is starting?

  16. It's a good job the money raised is for the stroke foundation, hate to miss out on a badge :roll: :roll: :roll:

  17. Subtle, and to the point...

  18. Yeah, a pity that the REAL point is/was obviously missed and instead of thinking or asking about it, the response is instead a dig :roll: :roll:

    Like it or not, people like to get something for their efforts. Whether that be recognition or participation, the kudo's to show their friends that they did it, or a warm fuzzy feeling. Many come along to bike charities because of the badges they get to show they support worthy causes and have a history of their attendance throughout the years etc. If the badge doesn't matter, why bother providing/advertising it in the first place, if it's not to help attract people to the event and assist in generating a loyal following?

    To degrade someone for wanting the badge, for the above reasons, simply shows you really have no understanding, as well as ensuring that people will maybe put some thought into even going at all if thats the sort of attitude they can expect. Shame.

  19. In that case I will just log onto their website and click on the 'donate' button shall I? :roll:
    No, you must know me so well. I don't donate to charities at all and all I want is something for me isn't it :roll: :roll: :roll:

    Mouth, I couldn't have explained it better than how you just did and people really should get their facts straight before posting presumptuous shit :|

  20. Er, no.

    Someone actually said that if they can't get a badge, then they know of other roads that they'll enjoy just as much on the day. In other words, despite it being a run for charity, if they can't get something for it, then bugger 'em.

    It's a charity run, for crying out loud. Why should there have to be some kind of reward for it? The fact is, there are limited number of badges/pins or whatever's on offer. Whether you get a badge or not, at the end, you're still in the running for a prize, based on your poker hand.

    Trust you lot to put such a slant on such a worthy cause over a damned trinket.
