Agree i think the Club would defiantly require a fixture from the AFL to sell 3 game memberships at this stage.
I wonder if they offered them back in October/November when memberships were being pushed by the Club
Even buying a season membership at the discount price still comes with some risk in 2021.
If say the AFL puts out a fixture block of 6 games with 3 at Home maybe they will do it then.
Not sure how much you save on a 3 game membership as i only get season tickets
So people may just have to buy tickets when available
From memory the 3 game memberships did not offer the blockbuster games v Pies, Richmond etc.
You can pick any game. Had them for the last few years. I don't live close enough to go a full season. The savings from a normal ticket I think added up to around $60 over the 3

I can back that up, we've had a couple of years being the 3 game membership and we had the choice of all games.
And you could change it down the track provided there was enough notice.
The only rule with blockbuster games has been related to free tickets for your friends.

Finally received an email from the Club last night to say that my membership pack has been dispatched and will arrive in approximately 2 weeks.
Cutting it fine.

I got an email from the club in late January saying our packs were dispatched and 2-5 weeks away(still haven't arrived), must be coming from Outer Mongolia via camel > ship and > Deliveroo.

Mine too, and I've since had to move house unexpectedly.

On a different issue, was any other Victorian member very concerned by the wording from the AFL on ticketing yesterday?

On ticketing, an AFL statement said more detail would be released in coming days. “Home clubs will have three priority groups that will receive priority on-sales and it is up to each club how they segment their membership categories into those three groups (including reserved seat members and general admission members).

“Away club members will also receive priority access following home club members and should capacity still remain a general public on-sale will be conducted.”
For some games It won't be an issue but if we are still at 50% cap by the start of games in melbourne we will be in trouble. Carlton at Marvel at 50% will be close to exhausted by home club members, same as Richmond and Hawthorn at the MCG and Collingwood at Marvel late in the year.

I think we can give up any chance of getting in to GMHBA for round 2 or to Ballarat for the dogs game.

Except for the $20 voucher there is not much in the Adult pack that i am anxious to get
I think you can access the voucher via your mobile phone at the Lions shop.
The pin & car sticker i have never used
The fridge magnet was useful in 2019 for a quick reference.
No use in 2020 and this year no day or times for games after R 6. This could could change for the worse at any time but i hope that does not happen.

A bit different for the Family & Kids pack
Covid has caused lot's of problems and i assume this delay has something to do with supply probably from overseas

Looks like our Vic Memberships (even worse because I always upgrade to the one that gives you access to the extra non-Lions games) will be another donation for the second year running.

Given that will most certainly be the case, which isn't a huge issue for me but will for many others, the club really does need to do something special for Vic members.

The other issue for the club (which isn't the club's fault due to the uncertain times we live in) I think moving forward is that a lot of Vic members just won't renew anymore because unless you go to every game, you end up paying more than just paying on a GA basis without getting any better seats. This is compounded even more by those members that like to receive the goodies with their memberships, which also are non-existent aside from a voucher, but now that the club can't guarantee entry into games in Victoria (again not their fault) memberships are worthless.

I said this last month, but the club needs to find a way, particularly in light of this news regarding home clubs getting priority access, to enable Vic members free access to the Lions VFL games in Victoria.

Yeah I'm in the same boat - I can afford to effectively donate so I will, and I'll absolutely hold onto it for september membership because I expect finals ticketing to be the same as usual (equal allocation to members of both clubs). I think an AFL reserved membership will turn out to be a way better investment this year as it seems like it will have similiar priority to club and MCC members, but thankfully a mate of mine has a spare so I may not need to double dip.

I'm sympathetic to the club's position here as you say. Free entry to Lions VFL games would be a good step but who knows whether they will even be allowed crowds. Some functions or some better opportunities to win signed merchandise for Vic members (when covid-safe functions can happen) would be a nice gesture.

Let's put it this way - assuming borders stay open I reckon I've got a better chance to see games if I fly up.
