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.

    OUR GRAND OLD FLAG by George On The Outer

    When an AFL Grand Final approaches, supporters look for omens to help them foresee how their team will fare in the contest.   Melbourne supporters were, until just before Saturday’s opening bounce, the best in the business at looking for positives to give them hope and direction - a natural feeling after 57 years in the wilderness. So when the Bulldogs’ streamers kept slipping from the handle of the Premiership Cup as Glen Jackovich delivered it to Optus Stadium, they wondered whether it

    THE ICING ON THE QUAKE by Whispering Jack

    It’s not Christmas yet but if the Melbourne wins its last game of the 2021 season, then many of its fans will be celebrating early. There already are some parts of our town where the pending festivity is preordained. Houses are decked out with red and blue banners and streamers, some of which appeared as early as last Saturday week, on the morning after the Demons’ magnificent 83-point crushing of Geelong in their preliminary final at Optus Stadium.

    CAT SKINNING by George On The Outer

    When they defeated the Geelong Cats in the 2021 AFL Preliminary Final on Friday night in Perth, Melbourne proved that there is more than one way to skin those cats.  They did it in the ruck and in the middle, they did it in the forward line, they did it in defence and around the ground, but importantly, each and every player a Demon guernsey spent his night at Optus Stadium skinning an opponent. Following the after-the-siren win against Geelong in Round 23, there was an expectation of

    THE POINTY END by The Oracle

    The AFL’s two oldest clubs, Melbourne and Geelong, face off on Friday evening in a sudden death Preliminary Final. It’s a game that promises plenty in terms of fascination and intrigue as a result of the rivalry that’s been building between the teams over recent encounters that have been tight struggles which have gone to the wire with two of them decided by after-the-siren goals. The added touch of mystery attached to this week’s meeting comes by virtue of the fact that it’s going to take

    THE VFL YEAR THAT NEVER WAS by KC from Casey

    The rising case numbers and the continuing lockdowns in Victoria and NSW spelled doom for the 2021 VFL season which went through a slow, painful demise before its recent official cancellation. After weeks of indecision, the AFL decided to pull the plug on the season with the 10-0 Bulldogs recognised as minor premier, but without a premiership cup and without awarding the J.J. Liston Medal for the best and fairest VFL player. It was somewhat fortuitous for the integrity of the competition t

    TAMING THE LIONS by George On The Outer

    With nine finals debutants in the side, the Melbourne Football Club had a daunting assignment ahead of it in the First Qualifying Final — to overcome the competition’s highest scoring side, the Brisbane Lions. In the end, the Demons accomplished the task by putting the bite on their opponents on their way to taming the Lions and recording a 33 point win that propelled them into one the two Preliminary Finals of 2021.   It was one of those debutants, Luke Jackson, who put the bite in more

    RETURN TO NEVERLAND by Whispering Jack

    The greatest Demon A HIGHWAY OF DEMONS by Whispering Jack CHAPTER SIXTEEN - RETURN TO NEVERLAND  I have a six year old grandson who recently took up the family tradition of following the Demons. He had his first taste of the game a few years ago when he went to the “G” with his parents to watch the 107-point massacre of Carlton and he went to another game in the following season which was also a W for the Dees. But his appetite for the club has grown exponentially this year and wh

    METAMORPHOSIS by Whispering Jack

    I’ve always believed that when the home and away matches come to an end, the football season takes on a completely different shape and character. During the regular season, each team’s goals progress as the weeks pass and if you’re good enough to survive and make the grade, the situation changes. The comparison can be made with the life cycle of a butterfly going through stages from egg to larva to caterpillar, cocoon and in the end to a bright and colourful creature that emerges from darkness i

    STEALING THE CATS’ CREAM by George On The Outer

    They were leading by 44 points well into the third quarter of a game to decide the minor premier, having kicked nine unanswered goals. The Cats were about to lap up their bowl of cream, dreaming of next week but the Demons led by Max Gawn had other ideas. In a stunning finish, they stole the game from under them to claim the plaudits as best team and top of ladder position. In a remarkable game, it all came down to Max having to kick the winning goal after the final siren, something which s

    SKIN THE CATS by Whispering Jack

    The task ahead for the Demons as they wend their way down the Princes Freeway to Geelong on Saturday night will be to skin the Cats. For them to come away with the points from this game would mark an historic occasion for the club as it will finish on top of the ladder for the first time since its last premiership year, 1964. And it was in that year, that a trip to Corio Bay to meet the reigning premiers in Round 12, was one of the catalysts for Melbourne’s surge to the flag. It was a top o

    REACH FOR THE STARS by George on the Outer

    It was a game of great significance for the Melbourne Football Club. A win would see them keep top spot on the ladder with one round remaining. To achieve top place in the Round for Reach when we are all inspired to “Be Like Jim” and reach for the stars was a great way of honouring one of our heroes. All the better given that it was done by way of an emphatic 41 point win against Adelaide! It is worth remembering that, but for the umpiring mistake in the previous encounter with the Crows, t

    A lot of water has passed under Princes Bridge in the five years since Melbourne last met Adelaide on the MCG. The Crows were riding high at the time while the Demons were mid-table and scrambling for a win to stay in the race for the finals. The 30,000 fans who had tickets to the game were thoroughly entertained by a close, high scoring affair that ended in tears for fans of the home team. Not even an eight-goal second term could help them.   Times have changed.    In the fi
