This poll has Spring onwards options, assuming that the Australian community progress though the Winter months, slowing or stopping spread of COVID.

Tiles


Has Boxing Day and the few days after it been put on the table? As a lot of people are still off work then, or even New Year’s Day as it falls on a Friday meaning it could still be 3 day competition Friday, Saturday, Sunday

I think the more pressing question is if the VAL can survive this crises. I know their running costs are minimal compared to a lot of other bigger sports but they do rely a lot on sponsorship dollars and are those sponsorship dollars going to be there in the immediate future after this corona crisis?

It wouldn't be the end of the world if we ran for minimum or even no prize money for a season to keep everything going. There are plenty of ways around it. I'm sure most runners would be happy to increase the event levy to $10 or so to help out as well, it's nothing considering the expense already involved with travel, accomodation, injury treatment etc.

There are also still six or so blank singlets for potential league sponsors. With the amount of people involved in the VAL and the contacts they have, it shouldn't be too hard to fill them if everybody put some thought into it. A lot of businesses will struggle but a lot will continue to thrive.

The delayed/cancelled football season will be the breaking point for plenty of country clubs thanks to their stupidity with player payments over the years, too many participants with their hand out and too few there for the sport. It's a perfect time to cash in by doing the opposite. Think of ways to give back to the sport, think of potential new meetings such as in fire-affected areas or towns that have lost sporting clubs, the volunteers will still be there willing to help a community event.

PS. This is Jacob Densley, not the Stawell Gift winner (was robbed of it this year).

I agree. It’s going to take a lot of creative thinking and everyone pulling in the same direction but it’s still going to be a hard road with sacrifices and hits along the way for both the VAL and it’s members. It’s been hard enough as it is for the VAL before this pandemic so I would imagine it’s going to be facing its toughest period ever as are many sports and leagues around the country.
