OK, hopefully, I’ve entered all of this correctly into my calendar, given the club hasn’t bothered to do so.
The women by far get the worst run of conflicts this year. There are two times where starting Windy Hill games slightly earlier (e.g. 1100) would resolve that.
What’s below is only the particularly nice or bad stuff – e.g. if the three teams play on different days, or well separated in time on the same day, I don’t mention it.
Mon 9 March (Labor Day)
Double-header of VFL practice match and seniors BLT matches vs Geelong. In Colac, sigh.
Sat 25 April
The VFLM team play at Olympic Park Oval from 1200, which allows plenty of time to cross the railway line for the ceremonies prior to the AFL’s 1620 start. We haven’t played there before (well, Blitz has) and it will presumably be unfenced, free, and very very busy.
Sun 3 May
VFLM + AFL double-header at the MCG.
Sat 9 May
Three games vs Geelong. VFLM+VFLW double header at Windy Hill, starting 1200 and 1500. The latter significantly overlaps the AFL 1625 start at the MCG.
Sun 17 May
VFLW in a double-header at Sandy from 1130. For them. Unfortunately our VFLM are at Crazyburn from 1400. Can someone arrange a helicopter so I can do that trip in the provided 30 minutes?
Sat 23 May
VFLW+VFLM+AFL triple-header at Punt Road and the MCG. VFLM finishes around 1650, so time to do the short run to the city in time to do the Long Walk back.
Sun 31 May
Partial clash: VFLM at Windy Hill at 1140 and AFL at Docklands from 1310.
Mon 1 June to Wednesday 10 June
No footy. Book your Bali holiday, and fly back to Perth on the 11th.
Sat 20 June
Partial clash: VFLW at Windy Hill from 1130, AFL at Docklands from 1345.
Sat 27 June
VFLM+VFLW double header at Whitten Oval. Gold coin entry?
Sat 4 July
VFLW+VFLM double header at Windy Hill.
Sat 11 July
VFLW at Pissy Park 1130, GWS in Sydney 1635. Even with a potential perfectly-timed flight I’m gonna say this is a partial clash.
Sun 19 July
This is a mess. VFLM at Windy Hill from 1100, VFLW at Arden Street at the exact same time, AFL at the MCG rather than Docklands from 1310. FFS.
Sun 26 July
VFLW+VFLM double header at Werribee.
Sat 1 August
VFLW at Bill Lawry Oval from 1200 then AFL from 1345 at the MCG.
Sat 9 August
VFLW at Box Hill at 1130, AFL vs Port over there from 1640.
Sat 22 August
TBC: VFLM at Windy Hill from 1300, AFL plays the Bears away at an unknown time and date that weekend.
