    Thank you Lekko for your query.

    In regards to this issue, the event will allow the same concession as exist for the MCC Saturday Allegros.

    This concession is not blanket free entry for all titled players, but rather free only to certain titled players who are either MCC members or non-resident in Victoria.

    The OP to this thread has been edited to include this information.
