    Championship/Open cycle

    How is the state who is due to hold the Aus championships/open determined? Who is scheduled to be the holders for the next few years?
    When will it be NSW's turn next?
    GO THE DRAGONS!
    GO Western Sydney Wanderers!

    It is a pretty bizarre cycle and all but meaningless.

    Allocation of ACF Tournaments

    The options grid, which is part of the ACF By-law Procedure for Allocating ACF Tournaments, is a starting point. The State with the option must exercise it by 31 July of the year about 18 months ahead of the event. Thus the date for exercising the option for the ASTC 2006, Aus Open 2006/2007 and Aus Juniors 2007 was 31 July 2005. None of the nominated States exercised its option. The ACF has called for bids for the events to be submitted.

    The grid was revised in 2004 but now needs further revision in light, for example, of the disaffiliation of the CANT.

    The history of the grid in recent years has been that it is only a rough guide to where the events will actually be held and who the organisers will be.

    I dont get it.
    Why was it held at the top of a snow mountsin in the middle of the Victorian countryside, when there was no snow at all. What about the interstate ppl. They have to pay airfare then for travel to the Mt.Buller.
    It is ridiculous.

    Absolute rubbish. The place was covered in a couple of inches of the stuff on the very first night!

    Yeah, I was one of them, and the cost to travel up from Melbourne was negligible. Funny how many interstate players were happy to travel up and so many (of course, not all) Melbournites whinged.

    Anyway further whinging about Mt Buller isn't relevant to this thread so if it continues I'll just split it to somewhere else. It's all been said a zillion times before.

    Turnouts at events in Alice Springs have so far been disapointing.
