Further to my advice regarding District Championships and running events, this naturally extends to the CFA State Championships.
This year, the State Urban Junior Championships will be held on Saturday 20 and Sunday 21 March and the joint Urban Senior and Rural Junior/Senior Championships takes place the following weekend on 27 and 28 March 2021. Both events will be held in Mooroopna and planning has been well underway for what I am sure will be a great event.
Like all other aspects of CFA, the COVID pandemic has changed how we do business, and events such as these are no different. The organising committees are working very closely with the Pandemic Management Team, and other key stakeholders such as DHHS to ensure the State Championship events are COVID compliant and the health and wellbeing of our members remains paramount.
It is unfortunate, however, that this year’s State Championships are likely to be closed events to the broader community, with attendance only being permitted to participants, officials and other authorised people. I hold anticipation that the 2022 Championships will once more allow an opportunity for our communities to share in these events with our members.
