Competition timing

Yo - Looks like we need to revise the timing of this jam. Usually the 48hr corresponds with the end of the uni semester and the public holiday to allow a day of rest after. this would be the 29th - 30th - 1st.
Are we able to update the event to reflect this? Anyone against this?

I arranged the 29th - 1st off work months ago in preparation.

We won't be able to have it on that weekend. Melbourne games week ends on the 29th, so a lot of people will be out of state until late on the 30th. We could move it to the next weekend of the 5th and 6th though.

Hasn't been a problem with those exact dates for the last 10 years. Should we put it to a vote to gauge public preference?

I will put a poll out to move it to November, but it was actually moved to the start of October last year for this reason. https://www.facebook.com/events/294179787621629/?acontext=%7B%22source%22%3A5%2C...

Moved to the the start of October for what reason?
It has been held on the weekend at the end 1 week uni break for at least the past 6 consecutive years that I have participated. With a majority of participants being Uni students from the Brisbane area.

I am suggesting the start of October, like it's always been from 2007. This year specifically the weekend would be September 29th and 30th and the 1st of October for the final day if it were going ahead as usual.
