I’m curious why the turnout is so much lower now than it used to be.

Have some ideas, might be wrong...
Because ASADA is finally done with and people don’t pity pledge anymore, which is what led to the rise in 2015/16. Some people put in 200-300 on their own back then.

After that the club has made some weird decisions and the on-field performance hasn’t been great and so people like to withdraw support for that reason too.

And then most recently finances are probably fairly tight with covid, a bunch of people losing their jobs or being stood down and something has to give, so they either reduce their pledge just to get a badge, or they just don’t do it altogether.

I suppose we can do a big reminder post and tag all the previous sponsors when the holidays are over and wallets are under less pressure, but I wouldn’t expect that much of a rush.

Possible Doss had an influence?

That's the 2 players up. Well done everybody who's committed so far. Probably too much to hope for 3 players but there's still time and even if we don't get there it'll roll over to give us a head start next year.

Just need to get the pledges in now.

We'll get a voting thread up soon.
