What stopped people coming to the 2004 States at Beaumaris ?

Postby Andrew Graham on Wed Jul 07, 2004 5:58 pm

We had a very small turn-up at this year's states - and no-one really knows why. Is the March long weekend a bad time of year ? Do many people only want to do one of either the nationals of the states in any season ? Was it the venue ? Wanting to go the the Grand Prix ? Feedback would be great.

Low turnout at Sabre State Titles

Andrew,
Plot the relationship between the Australian Grand Prix and the Sabre Titles and the Long Weekend.
When the grand Prix is on the long weekend the Sabre numbers are down.
When the Grand Prix isn't on the long weekend the Sabre States are well attended.
We had this discussion at the McCrae titles in 1997, trying to anticipate whether to change the Titles to another weekend other than the long weekend.
Fortunately for some years recently the GP has moved to the weekend after the long weekend and the numbers were strong.
Unfortunately this year the GP moved back to the long weekend and the numbers were down.
Now with 8 years of experience we should be able to make an informed decision about the suitability of the Long Weekend being used for the State Titles.
