Next Years Competition

When will next years competition happen ?

Gus, Joshua, Jake and myself were thinking of putting a team together for next years shoot, when do we think this will be ? short turn around and get back into the usual sync of april/may or stay with september?

Reason i ask is we were thinking of leaving the running of the livery and some such to Newt and we need to let him know.

What would you folks prefer, April/May or September ?

Didn't seem to make much difference for my team either way. But it would definitely be nice to have a bit of warning as to what month it's gonna be in.

Yeh, i dont mind either. the only thing that puts april or may over the top for me is the weather is generally better that time of year.

I just wonder if they would have enough time to organize one for april. we just had the grand final on friday and then in 4 and a half months another competition starts ?

I was talking to Cookie at the Grand Finals and generally April-May seemed the most popular time of year. Not only that but shooting weekend usually falls between Uni holidays so that's pretty ideal for us :)

Fingers crossed for a return to normal for the dates in 2017.
I'm hopeful of better communication this year with loads of notice.

As a school team, the September dates made it really difficult for us. Was right after trial exams so difficult to prepare, and clashed with a major school function on the Saturday that had our team members not getting sleep till midnight after a 6am start. April/May was much better.

I'm happy with either, but would like to know sooner rather than later. people need to book leave ideally and work out when I need to save up for ;)

A lot of people these days have stuff booked up months in advanced - personal and work - so the more warning the better..

easter would be ideal. Sure some people have that time away, but others would be more likely to be available and have the monday to recover etc

May would work really well for my students. April at a push. September was... challenging.

According to a post by Ant T on Facebook, the dates will be announced in the next few days.
My guess is Monday.
All announcements happen on Monday.
It is written in stone.
Or at least in wet sand.
