One Day In September?

Being the early part of the year,I had a browse on the Calendet that showed the National and State Public Holidays up until the end of 2021.

One particular one that caught my attention was Grand Final Friday,one that preceded the AFL Grand Ginal.

Instead of the Public Holiday and subsequently the Grand Final Parade being on the last Friday of September,it is scheduled to be on the 1st Friday of October.

This year and every year for the next 3 years after 2018.This mightn't be news to you guys in Victoria,but it certainly got my attention when I checked the next 3 Calenders until 2021.Nithing showing yet for 2022 and beyond,but I suspect the next time the Saturday falls on October 7,that's when the AFL WILL schedule it.

Is it me,or are the AFL Commission(named AWFULL by Your's Truly)bloodymindedly determined to piss off the Victorian Thoroughbred Industry Forevermore?!

Didn’t mistake it for NRL Grassy? :lol:
This year I nan understand with Comm Games on though not sure about the others, maybe clash with cricket means we don’t get access to grounds as early?

No mate,it's a Victorian Hoiday on Friday October 5.

I haven't double checked this year's AFL fixtures,but I assume this year's Big One is Saturday October 6.

When the AFL started encroaching into October before(not counting the 2010 Replay),it brought a protest from the Victorian Thoroughbred Industry and it seems AWFULL are at it again'

Well,whoever put that holiday as such needs shooting,because the AFL Grand Final this year is still on That One Day in September.

So AWFULL is in the clear.Doesn't mean they won't try putting the GF on the 1st Saturday in October next year though
