As I said in the General section, Schalk is in SERIOUS condition and needed another operation today (Sunday). I have managed to deposit more than 50% of the operation costs. His medical is completely depleted.

  1. Reason for the post: Schalk is a legend on the forum and has ALWAYS gone the extra mile to help us. I would like to respond in kind. 😢
  2. Costs: Currently more than R50k just for today, hospital to follow. I wont be surprised if more than R100k
  3. Fund: If you want to contribute, AM Donald, FNB 255355, 6229 508 9546. Its private. Else PM me for Schalk's account number. Why private, because SARS might tax his business account as INCOME 😡 I have never set up a fund, so advice is 100% welcome
  4. Whatsapp: I set up a group but at 512 people (audio) it stopped me (limit), and then prompt banned me as SPAM. Awaiting unlock 😩
  5. Raffle: I have a Linn LP12 with Valhalla arm and fairly good Linn cartridge, Lets start at R8k and whatever the selling price, Ill put that also into the fund!!
  6. Feedback: Ill keep updating the post with news

Pledging 100% of the money from all my current For Sale items (only 20% on the Whisper) to the fund.
You can pay directly to the FNB acc above.

I don't think I've ever met Oom Schalk, but in a small community like this, I think it is worthwhile supporting each other.

I made a small contribution, hopefully it has an impact.

I have not posted much on this forum since emigrating, but still check in regularly. This is very sad news. Schalk is a great man and has given much to many. Will contribute what I can, thanks for setting this up Francois.

Time to bump this...
Masta' Schalk is the finest, kindest, most generous, most humble human being that I know.
I tried my best to keep quiet and not wax lyrical because I know how proud he is and how much he hates being in a situation he is in.
But, he needs our support, so dig deep.

I second each of your words, Mike, in addition to being such a nice bloke, think of the thousands of homes that have the pleasure of listening to music through his very special amps. To our 'Boet' Schalk, keep fighting friend!
