There are clubs discussing the idea of a vote at the AGM. Where this goes is anyone's guess. CV is a bit stand offish to be honest.
Your post #131 on this page prompted me to access the VTCA's constitution via its home page. I wished to ascertain the provision(s) in the constitution relating to the powers of the clubs to wind up the association. I think the relevant provision may be Part 7, sections 17.1 (b) 17.3(a) the latter requiring a resolution will only have effect if it is passed by at least 75% of Club Delegates present at an AGM or Special GM. I strongly urge clubs seeking to disband the VTCA ask CV for its opinion on what it considers are the constitutional requirement for the winding up of the VTCA. The very last thing is to go into an AGM half-cocked. I also think , if CV is not already aware, it familiarises itself with what challenges would face clubs.

They're not , just waiting till a few clubs show some balls.
I think it crucial clubs seeking to disband the VTCA ascertain if it is the case it will need at least 75% support for the resolution for it to be adopted. In the event this is the case, I think the logistics this would pose for clubs in mobilising this level of support prior to an AGM is remote. I hope CV does not sit on the fence and totally agree with you that it is up to the disaffected clubs to show some getup and go by taking their concerns to CV.

They don't take it to CV , they take it to the dictators and call a meeting of all clubs , like the South did.

VTCA clubs voting at an AGM to disband the competition is a very realistic scenario. CV have told clubs if this happens they will run it. I don't know many clubs who would vote not to disband the VTCA although the establishment only needs 30% of the vote.
As much as the constitution says they need 75% to disband the VTCA, in reality you probably only need half the clubs for the dominos to fall.

Just needs a big chunk of clubs to move a motion to disband, then the momentum will see others (probably enough) get on board - if they are bright enough to see the writing on the wall.

If they just fall short of 75%, they all resign from the VTCA, leaving the remaining clubs with a very small competition - good luck trying to recruit decent players then! It would be situation untenable, and the VTCA would then be forced to disband soon after that.

Where would the dictators go then?

I hear that Moonee valley are thinking of going to the MCA full time from next season but the old guard of the club want to stay either in the VTCA or join any new competition that Cricket Victoria maybe organising

I hope the club has done as suggested by fis shoileir in his post #135 on p7.

Given the subbies do not intend to take in new clubs next season I guess Strathmore will remain in the VTCA. Perhaps this matter may become clearer at their AGM on 13 May. I do not consider the subbies and VTCA models are sustainable in the long term.

They both are not.

Do I have to resort to alternative sites to get feedback on the VTCA's Presentation Night? Sad this forum is now neglected imo .
