The sunshine is so lovely. I'm going into town to help my step sister do some belated Christmas present shopping then am going to Sport Science in the afternoon.

I think I should also start jogging and/or running in my neighbourhood since the weather is so good and a bit of vitamin D might do my skin a lot of good as well.

Isn't it funny that it's 3 Capetonians chatting to each other here!

Stunning day again - just been for a walking slog up and down the Newlands roads before hitting Planet for a BodyWorx class

Hope you are busy down at Sports Science - saw lots of their ladies on the roads too - amazing how many new ones were gasping for breath and stretching outside Montebello thinking the others couldn't see them :))

Okay cool. I'm glad that *everyone* thinks the name should stay the same.

And thanks :)

Yes, no reason to change the name.

I agree pretty much. I didn't see any way the name could be shortened without detracting from the message. The friends part is important and there's no way to make it shorter.

I think that the name describes the group perfectly - it covers South Africans who still live in the country, those who are away for however long and for the many millions who wish us well

It is easy for any SparkPeople to find us if they simply mention the country, and the Friends part invites others to have a look and see what we are about and shows that we are willing to include them if they wish.

The length of the name does not matter - it says it all and we need all the friends we can get

Apparently I'm one of the team leaders now!
And one of Spark's suggestions for new team leaders is to assess the effectiveness of the group name.

Basically the group name needs to make the group easy to find and obviously be descriptive without being overly specific.

I think the name fills these criteria pretty well. However it is a bit lengthy as names go.

I didn't think I should just go and change it without getting an idea of what other people think. Especially as there are a lot of people on here that have contributed so much more the the group and so have a better idea of what works and so on.

Any ideas/ suggestions?
