All You Need to Know for the 2016 Victorian Fantasy Tournament

Below are some very important details in regards to the Victorian Fantasy Tournament this coming weekend. Please read them carefully to ensure you are prepared for the weekend.
 
Time: Sign in will be open from 8:00am and finishing at 9:00am. If you are playing or refereeing in the first game you are expected to be signed in BEFORE 8:45am and be ready on the field to play or referee at 8:50am. Any player who has not signed in will not be allowed to take the field. Teams who do not present for sign in may be at risk of forfeits or disqualification.

Location: La Trobe University, Bundoora. We will be on the lawn used for the second round of the VQA’s Charity Cup last year and the Australian team selection camps, at the corner of Crissane Rd and Waterdale Rd. Free parking is accessible via Crissane Rd. This lawn is on the very edge of campus. If you are really struggling with Google Maps, search ‘Latrobe Melbourne Hall Bundoora’ and that should work just fine.

STOP 60 TO GROUND

From the city the 86 tram from Bourke street towards RMIT Bundoora will get you to stop 60-La Trobe University/Plenty Road, from there it’s a 20 minute walk down Kingsbury Drive to get to the field. To sort out your own specific journey, we’d recommend the PTV Journey Planner or you can view a timetable for the 86 tram here

 

What to bring for the weekend:

  • Water bottle
  • Comfortable clothes – we will be providing you with a top!
  • Hat & other sun protective clothing/sunscreen
  • Runners or Football Boots
  • Jumper in case it gets cold
  • You are welcome to bring your own broom, however the VQA will be supplying some brooms for the event. All brooms must be cleared with the TD and game’s Head Referee before use. 
  • Your own position headbands (none will be provided by the VQA)

 

Lunch: Lunch this year will be a BBQ. You’ll get 2 snags and a drink (soft drink or water) per day. If you put down dietary requirements, we’ve tried our best to cater for them, just let our chefs know when you go to get your named checked off to ensure you are receiving the right thing.

Snitch times: 18 minutes seekers released, 22 minutes snitch to 1 hand, 25 minutes snitch to no hands, 27 minutes snitch is confined to the middle of the field. 
 
Referees: Each team is expected to provide a referee team (ARs, SR, GRs, Scorekeepers, Snitch) for their scheduled referee game. Referees need to be on the field ready to go approximately 10 minutes prior to the scheduled starting time of the game. Failure to provide a suitable referee team will result in your team forfeiting their next scheduled game. 
 
Forfeits/Forced Forfeits: We would love if your team presented themselves approximately 10 minutes before and are ready to take to the pitch by the scheduled start time. If you’re more than 10 minutes late you will forfeit the match with a score of 0 – 150.  
 
It’s very important that the tournament runs on time especially as we are also hosting the second round of State of Origin games. As players it is your responsibility to know what is going on and where you are required. We are on a tight schedule and all involved in organising the tournament would appreciate your cooperation.
