DJ two weeks ago my wife and I spent 2 nights in the city seeing the Harry Potter play with one of our grand daughters. We stayed 2 nights in a hotel and also visited the aquarium and 2 restaurants. We tried on every occasion to use the Vic qr system on every occasion it was rejected. Saying we are not part of this system. It was not just my phone my wife's phone got the same result. Then today I see the government saying people are not using their qr system. What a bad joke it appears to me that  retailers are not  on it. It appears to me we are once again let down by poor public service action or lack of it. And people wonder why  a lot are loath to go to large public gatherings.

Old Dee I am no sure from your post  above whether YOUR PHONES or the Restaurants do not have the latest Vic Gov QRCode?

If your phones were rejected Then I suggest you need to use the App to get the updated Vic Govt QR code on your phones.

If it's the restaurants that haven't got The new Govt code then they are at fault of not upholding the Govt system.

In ANY CASE you should have signed a Manual  system which each restaurant etc. would / should have had for  record purposes. 
 

That manual system had been in for months do us no excuse.

Also I am assuming your phones are " I Phones" capable of this technology being used.

re QR scanning, and for those who don't already know

you are supposed to use the vic gov services app on your smart phone

when you go to app store, DON'T search for "QR code scanning" or similar- you won't find it, but you will find heaps of other third party QR apps.

you should search for "Service Victoria". The gov app is not just a QR code app. it is a general services app, where QR scanning is just one of the many services within the app

Hmm, yes we used the manual system. The point is I put the Vic QR system on our phones the week before. Our phones work fine with the other QR system. It is perfect example of why the VIc  quarantine system fails it has been poorly administered.

Well Govt would be expecting that Restaurants  would be updating the correct QR Code system as Covid  Plan responsibility.

Needs  a few Check Officers to call around and do some Strategic calls to these slack establishments. 
 

But well done on your part and hoped you enjoyed Harry Potter with your granddaughter.

Sadly don't hold your breath. I suspect there are no inspectors. I asked 2 of the restaurants about it and the staff knew nothing about the Vic system. So I just filled in the register.

The system created right now with no top level and actually promoting crowding beggars belief. Either put COVID protocols in that allow for social distancing or don’t so that people can get back to the footy with ease. 

Sounds like they are making a simple thing complicated.

It is a complete joke. We should be able to go to the footy with our membership cards and others can just turn up on the day and buy a ticket the way they used to. The whole social distancing and qr codes is a joke. Every time I have been to the footy my services victoria app doesn't work anyway. Just walz on through. Same at the train station where they don't require an qr code and you can get on any carriage, stand where you want and all the while Mr Hippobottom is standing behind you and sneezing down your spine.

I really wish people would wear masks on the packed trains to and from the football like the LAW says you should.

Less than 10% of people are wearing masks, and I just don't get why. It is always crowded on those trains, how hard is it to slap a mask on?

FFS the complacency of so many is going to really screw us. And I don't know why nobody is monitoring it either. We should have people on trains, especially footy trains, ensuring mask compliance. 

At the moment with 0 new cases beyond this one returned traveller, it seems unlikely the crowds will be cancelled. We know the risk of being outdoors is super minimal. 

I caught my first train since well before Covid on the weekend and was actually quite surprised that almost everyone was wearing masks. 

Main exceptions were a couple of the usual 'Facebook certified medical expert' types, and Sydney supporters. The latter I assume were in town for the game, and maybe didn't know the requirements re masks on public transport?

But if you don't tell the collectors DC it is mud standard.  It's bit like having a champion footballer who is constantly injured if you cannot play you are useless.

If anyone else had an issue where the ticket is not appearing in the Melbourne mobile app, you probably don't have an email address linked to your membership (can happen if someone else has bought your ticket) If you give the club a ring, they can help you out connecting it

additionally it only sends a ticket to mfc app if your membership has a reserved seat

all non-reserved-seat members just go to ticketek (the club does send a reminder email with barcode)

Anyone worked out how to take a kid (under 5) to their reserved seat? In previous years they just go through the turnstile with you, but this year the mcg and state government require anyone 12 months+ to be ticketed. Mfc have provided no guidance in any emails, nor does ticketek or mcg have any info.

i think in ticketek under your barcode add a 1 to "upgade child 1-5 $0"

at least that's what i did when entering my booking in previous weeks - 1 barcode 2 tickets $0 cost

that's before mfc started to directly download reserved seat member's ticket to your phone's mfc app. i think in your situation as a reserved seat member you should ring the club. alternatively i hear club is having the kiosk outside the ground and they maybe able to help, but that's leaving it quite late

The lack of communication around how this will work for members and people with kids is extremely poor. As an AFL member it doesn't impact me too much cos I have to reserve tickets through Ticketek anyway but I feel for people in @wonnabeeri
situation. No wonder crowds are down, it all gets too hard and with the weather forecast as well it just becomes easier to stay home with the heater/fire going.
Not blaming MFC by the way, the communication should be from the AFL as it impacts all club's.

Tried ringing and they only man the phones mom-fri 9-5. And they haven’t answered two tweets asking what is going on. Pretty crap really. Don’t want to drive 90 minutes each way with a 2 year old only to have issues at the gate.

    THE YEAR THE SNOWFLAKES FELL by Whispering Jack

    The snow that fell on the slopes of Victoria’s mountain districts in the winter of 1965 was not considered good enough to satisfy the enthusiasts. The really heavy snow that season came in two waves further north in July and August. The first descended on the national capital where “Pig Iron Bob” still held sway. Snow flurries touched the landscape all the way across the Blue Mountains. The next big snow extended further north up to the hills around Mackay in Queensland. Snowflakes fell inside t

    DEES GIVE DOGS A BONE by George On The Outer

    First place versus second on the ladder promised to be a precursor to what can be expected in the coming finals race.  However, it was the Demons who faltered and gave the Bulldogs a bone to feed their hunger just weeks out from the end of the season. The win also sent the Dogs to the top of the ladder, a position they are unlikely to cede in the coming weeks, given their fixture. While Melbourne may now struggle to keep a spot in the top four with its draw and will likely depend on the res

    THE WORM WILL TURN by The Oracle

    When I was asked to preview this game, I wasn’t sure whether it was going to be played in Darwin, on the Gold Coast or the MCG. I had no idea as to the identity of Melbourne’s opponent. This would have made for one hell of an interesting match preview so I’m glad that the AFL managed to reorganize its fixture to enable a game … any game at all … to proceed in Round 19. We’ll worry about the Gold Coast Suns or whoever they put us up against when the weekend’s done and dusted and if and when

    DRAWN AND DEEFLATED by George on the Outer

    1st v 17th ... it would seem a sure one way contest between the Hawks and the Demons but it was not to be with the game finishing in a draw, the only positive being the Demons still retain their top spot on the ladder. Melbourne was taught a football lesson by Al Clarkson, who with limited resources, just instructed his players to scrap, fight and surge the ball forward.  It stifled the Melbourne free flowing style of play and denied them the opportunities they could normally expect.

    PINK RAIN by Whispering Jack

    There is no certainty about life under a pandemic. You wake up one morning without a care in the world; the sun’s shining and it’s a beautiful day. An hour later, everything’s up in the air, the entire state is on high alert and the apartment complex next door’s in lockdown. The simple decision you had to make about buying a ticket to the footy at the weekend suddenly might get put on the back burner. There are other things in life to prioritise and on top of that, they’re predicting rain for th

    COR BLIMEY by KC from Casey

    In years to come, the old timers will talk in wonderment about the “Avalon Avalanche” that hit Werribee’s Avalon Airport Oval on a mild winter’s afternoon at about ten minutes after the halfway mark of the game between the local Tigers and their cross town rivals, the Demons from Casey. At that moment in time, the game was poised as if on a knifepoint. Up until the main interval, it had been the visiting team which had maintained the lead from the start but it had struggled to entirely asse

    POWER FAILURE by George on the Outer

    South Australians should be well familiar with the damage that storms can do to the power supply.  But Port Power forgot those lessons on Thursday night football as they watched the Melbourne storm descend upon them from across the border and ruin their hopes of a top four placing. Just as equally, the win to the Demons cemented their spot in the top two and sent out the message that a team who had been going around in circles for the past couple of weeks, has in fact, turned into a cyclone

    CASEY SUFFER FIRST DEFEAT IN TWO YEARS

    The circumstances were a little unusual last Saturday night as KC from Casey was unavailable to report on the Casey Dees due to work commitments. On the ground things were somewhat unusual as well given that, although there was a game to be won on the night, preparations were also being made for the forthcoming Thursday night clash against Port Adelaide with Ben Brown rested for large slabs of the evening. It turned out perhaps, to be a stroke of genius for Melbourne with Brown making a strong c

    WEATHERING THE STORM by Mel Rundle

    The magic of Melbourne’s magnificent start to 2021 is beginning to wear off. In its past six matches it lost to three teams that were outside the eight, out of form —  teams which it had very little trouble bearing last year. This week, the temperature is turned up even higher with the hard fought spot in the top four at risk. The really ominous factor about the Demons’ upcoming Thursday night meeting with Port Adelaide this week is that it is due to take place at the very place where its dec

    FEE-FI-FO-FUM by George on the Outer

    “Fee-fi-fo-fum, without a Full Forward the Premiership can’t be won!” So said the GWS Giants, as they exposed Melbourne’s fatal deficiency with a nine point win at the MCG.  In past weeks Melbourne has been barely able to gloss over the lack of a serious target in front of goal, while others were able to contribute.  But in a near repeat of the game from the previous week, players running up the ground simply had no-one to kick the ball to, when all that was needed was that one tall target.

    MUCH ADO ABOUT EVERYTHING by Whispering Jack

    Let's face it. We Melbourne supporters are a demanding lot. Here we are with our team on top of the ladder with a record of 12 wins and 2 losses, a decent percentage and a fair run home for a team with finals credentials. We have a fit list with lots of in form players, many of who are in contention for All Australian and other high honours, the team’s playing with purpose and cohesion and its VFL affiliate is undefeated and going gangbusters.  Still, we're all walking around with conc

    HIATUS by KC from Casey

    After their five week Covid19 lockdown hiatus, the Casey Demons were fairly scratchy against Essendon VFL for the best part of 2½ quarters on Sunday afternoon but they finally settled down to motor away to a 48 point victory. With 20 AFL affiliated players on the team sheet, the Casey line up looked the strongest team ever put together since linking up with the Demons but the team struggled to score in the early going and managed its first goal to Aaron vandenBerg late in the first term.
