    The previous few posts have been about the Qld stage restrictions. You would need to research where VIC is at this point in time and time frames into the future. Victoria has been the slowest to reduce restrictions, so I would strongly recommend you find out where Victoria is at this point in time in terms of the issues we have been discussing.

    The 1.5m rule is definitely the most challenging to implement. If you draw a parallel with restaurants and cafes which have the same restrictions, it's being considered that those on the same table seem to be OK (at least from my observation of several places) whilst the tables themselves are spaced out further.

    Thus what Garvin said prior is quite relevant in that a trestle table with one game on it should be OK as long as there is space between games.

    The venues themselves may have other guidelines, and those clubs that use schools will likely have to wait until term 3 and even then only if schools are allowing external visitors.

    Weekenders are something I cannot see going ahead at this point in time due to the restriction on numbers per room.
