The way I look at it is enjoy life when you can.  Footy, pubs, coffee shops, day trips,  sporting events nrl, soccer, racing, restaurants, watch bands etc. Cram as much as possible and enjoy while you can.  These lockdowns, restrictions and disruptions will keep happening.  I have done a lot since March and will continue when I can. Just hope we get the all clear for our annual puffing Billy footy day at emerald in 2 weeks. We all miss even the simple thinks in life when in lockdown. Get out and enjoy when we can.

Not looking great for the puffing billy unfortunately as cases are rising, 19 new cases today 🤒

Probably be in lockdown next week as well.

Will wait and see what unfolds in next few days. Not looking very good for July 31. Might have an alternative day August 14. The way things are looking the lockdown could unfortunately last a few weeks. Hope not but not looking good.

I'll say not several weeks but at a guess we will be in lockdown until Monday the 26th, but (as one of my favorite forum members reminded me recently) judging from my Port Melbourne will finish 1st prediction im probably not in the best position to estimate 😁

Another 16 cases overnight. Extension of the 5 days is as short as winx odds. They will probably add another week. Will there be vfl and local footy next week? Maybe Not. Week after possibly with no crowds. First weekend in August will probably see return of local footy with some restrictions. I hope I am wrong and lockdown ends on Tuesday night but not holding my breath.

On previous occasions lockdowns haven't ended until there has been a certain period of no community transmission. This figure changes and Ive heard that this time we need 3 consecutive days. If thats true it will be weeks until we are released.

Think you are right bearsman. Not expecting the lockdown to end anytime soon. Could be a few weeks unfortunately. Hope we are wrong but signs are not good.

Looks like Vfl and all local footy cancelled YET again this week after extension to lockdown for a further 7 days. Following week doubtful or have no crowds.
