22 Jul 2020 AC President’s Eights Update
ACA considers that the recent problems with covid-19 in Victoria (and now NSW) has made October 2020 too problematic re to hold the AC Eights at VCC (Cairnlea).
We thank Tasmania CA’s offer of Launceston/Latrobe as a replacement venue, but again October 2020 is not feasible due to travel restrictions likely being still in force for October. A significant number of likely AC Eights players are Victorians who will either not be allowed to travel to Tasmania, or will not have been able to play croquet up to that point and so will be under-done.
We therefore postpone the AC Eights until late Jan 2021, at VCC (both because 12 courts is better for the Eights, and to support keeping VCC operating as a croquet venue).
If Jan 2021 becomes untenable, we will cancel this AC Eights, and just run the next AC Eights in Oct 2021.
