Very strange watching some of a game on TV with no crowd there! Almost silence when they get a goal instead of a roaring crowd, very weird!

Looks like we're primed to secede over here in WA with border closure imminent, shall we be New Holland or Westralia?

Watching footy with no crowds is like watching the olympics, it's really odd. I reckon they should have hired a hotel near a major ground or two and had a sort of lightning carnival and then only released the footage of one round each week.

Going with the modern way W.A. could take on an aboriginal name for our new country, or empire.

in the book 'operation black swan' Forrestania was the choice.
back cover summary:
"A fast moving action packed political spy thriller set right here in the West."
without spoiling the reading of the story, which is quite entertaining and thought provoking,
it has no real ending, the successful secession appeared to be heading towards a
cancellation...

Hey John,
Can't see you having your rally next year as it will probably clash with the Wentworth Tractor Rally (June 12 -14) {like it was in 2016}

Scotty's shed rally is still on. Now that's an event not to be missed.
Attendance - 1 plus dog. Possibly a cat or two too.

Seriously though, it's good to know which events have been cancelled as some are quite some time in the future. June is mentioned above. That's close to 3 months away.
