Hi All,

The Western districts competition was planned for the weekend of the 20th-21st January. This has been moved to the weekend of 26th-28th Jan. We don't think organising accommodation for that weekend should be an issue if you book soon.
As usual, the 1st day will count towards the SFD aggregate and the combination of both days scores will contribute to the Western Districts Title.

We will post further information closer to the date.

The Southern Freedivers is an AUF Club. Should not be running a Comp over the Nationals - no respect.

They should not run the nationals on the traditional date of the western districts. The nationals will be a joke anyway. The best divers won't win... only the best divers who show up.

Paul the recent change to the dates for western district were an error on the calender.

1) I confirmed with Riddler back in July/Aug when SCS were disbanding that he would continue to run/host the WD on the Australia day weekend. Regardless of the National dates as brett pointed out this has been the traditional weekend. You can go back as far as 2007 on the forum to see that.

Andrew only picked up on the error recently on the calender thus the reason for us letting everyone know that the calender was wrong.

2) Of the few vic members that regularly attend nationals that ive spoken with. Most dont see a conflict and are not choosing one comp over another. Instead most have work or family commitments or cannot afford the costs involved.

3) Lastly the SFD has always supported the AUF and has encouraged at our meetings and on social media for our vic members to attend nationals on numerous occassions. Further to this i as well as other members have discussed at length with Adrian the vic attendance.
