A3VE postponed until 2021

31 March 2020

The COVID-19 virus has caused major disruptions in our lives and it has become apparent that our original Australian 3 Day Vintage Enduro (A3VE) date this year is not viable. VERi has now bowed to the inevitable and cancelled the A3VE until 13-16 May 2021 (TBC)*.

Despite the possibility of squeezing into the motorsport calendar in October this year and clearing a week in the Blackwood Caravan Park schedule, we came across the stumbling block of DELWP/Parks Victoria scheduled track closures until November (a time of heat and bushfire danger). Also, the fact that farmers will be preparing paddocks for crops made the scheduling this year unworkable.

The positive vibe this event has created drove us all to seek the best outcome, and we realised we wouldn't be able to do the event justice in these circumstances.

We are hoping that all entrants will carry over their entry and accommodation bookings into 2021.

On a positive note, the new date gives us time to polish the course and provide the best possible riding experience on an old enduro bike. The Blackwood township regrets the cancellation, but we are secure in the knowledge that we will come back bigger and better.

Please look out for each other and stay safe in these challenging times.

The VERi Committee.

* Please note: This date was originally announced as 20-23 May 2021, but was changed to avoid clash with 2021 A4DE.

Wandong and COVID-19
23 March 2020

To all our members and guests

We have been following the state and federal government announcements closely over the last few weeks and been trying to fit our events into their guidelines. In light of the most recent announcements and the shutdown on non essential activity in Victoria, we believe it would be irresponsible to proceed with our Wandong event this weekend.

While we can accommodate the social isolation rules, it would not be a good idea to proceed when other Australians are doing their part to slow the spread of the virus.

The closure of State borders is another factor we have to consider.

We will be giving out full refunds for those that have already entered. If you have already paid please send an email with your bank details to our treasurer
Please remember she is a volunteer and will get to these when she can.

Stay tuned for announcements about other VERi events.

Unanimously disappointed
