Restart to the trials calendar

Postby outforfun » Mon Apr 20, 2020 10:04 am

G'day everyone.

I have been giving half an ear to the football codes all trying to tell various governments when they are going to be starting again after Rona closed everything down.

Considering the health advisors said close and the public face of the Qld government at least is no discussion has been had with NRL yet. But the horse racing - and of course the gambling industry is off and running...

We in trials get very few numbers at events, unless it's a state title, why can't we get back riding? I mean horse racing must have roughly the same numbers if not more than we get at a state series, definitely more than some club days. So we have another sport to justify that it can be done.

Now with the ball sports, particularly the NRL telling the state governments when they're starting up again. Surely we have a chance to at least get club level and to an extent state series events running again.

Or is it possible that the other factor hasn't been mentioned. That almighty $$?

Just a curious thought. I'd like to know what other people think about this.

How many over 50 year olds race horses or play footy?

You don't have to be over a certain age to get sick or worse from Rona. But if you can wash your hands before touching your face, particularly your mouth, nose and eyes... You are less likely to get sick - from anything as mild as a sniffle to the corona virus family.

June would be cool if the figures keep heading down, but I guess that's Ma & ama's call.
