For those enquiring about transport to and from airport we are still negotiating with Victorian Dept of Transport and hope they will come on board again with sponsorship as they did last year with $20,000 of funding so please bear with us. However this is a key funding negotiation and may take time.
So at this stage I can’t tell you a time so please hold off on booking your flights for moment. I will hopefully have this deal done by end of month.
Ok three key attachments in this update
- Draft draw for comp
Draw will be confirmed at our next meeting so any concerns please let me know now.
- Players information booklet.
I know it is not the best booklet for blindies so am trying to get a better version for you but until then I wanted to get the info to you.
- Sight certificate form.
Let me be clear about this- if the form is not completed correctly and on time your athlete will not be participating. We had problems earlier this year at NCIC and that cannot happen again.
You need to provide forms when submitting your team. If you think BCA have a copy check with me before submitting the forms. I can tell you majority of players expired this year so you will need new one forms only last three years from date of form.
VIC & NSW have been the only teams that have nominated so BCA are now discussing with states what to do next. Please keep in mind that the final teams need to be nominated and sent to me no later than 1st November.
