A Message from the President.
Hello All, Further to yesterday's email regarding allowing our board to gather further information from relevant bodies before making a final decision , I thank clubs for your patience and understanding while be sought out greater detail. Our Executive Committee worked late into the night gathering relevant information from sources such as the Chief Medical Officer, Councils, our legal and insurance practitioners. On the advise obtained, it is unfortunate that we will also be calling off the conclusion to our Grand Final matches immediately. Some of the information suggested some of our stakeholders they being, Clubs, Players, Umpires, Officials and Spectators could be at risk if play proceeded. It has always been the VTCA's Duty of Care to our stakeholders which would determine our final decision. Under no circumstance would we put any VTCA stakeholders at risk. The Executive made this recommendation early this morning to the full board for the immediate cancellation of games, which the board has unanimously endorsed. I understand this decision may be a bitter pill to swallow for some however safety to all must be the final and immediate factor. Any decisions on the awarding of Premierships will be made in coming days as will the distributions of player awards as our Presentation Night will also be required to be cancelled on the advise received overnight.. Thank you for your patience and understanding, the board wishes you all on going good health. Regards, Steve McNamara VTCA President
