Will Noosa send Bachie stars home amid virus concerns?
ON Saturday night, Noosa nightclub Rolling Rock is hosting the much-anticipated music event, including guest appearances from a string of attractive gents from reality TV, including The Bachelorette.
The Hastings St nightclub look forward to welcoming international DJ Tigerlily, and Bachelorette contestants Timm Hanly, Jackson Garlick, Alex McKay and Ciarran Stott, as well as Love Island stars Adam Farrugia and Todd Elton.
But with the threat of COVID-19 virus, and the 600-capacity venue directly in the sights of prime minister Scott Morrison's suggested cancellation of all events over 500 people, will we be sending the reality TV stars home?
Keiran Dole, who is head of events for the company promoting DJ Tigerlily, said as far as he was concerned the event was still going ahead.
"We haven't heard anything otherwise," he said.
"It'll be business as usual."
Rolling Rock nightclub was approached for comment but at time of publication had not responded.
A number of other Noosa events scheduled for this weekend have confirmed they would be postponed.
But not because of the threat of any virus.
Noosa Pirates Rugby League have cancelled their senior trial matches set for Saturday afternoon.
After much rain through the week, club secretary Kristy Hart said they made the decision to cancel the games to preserve the state of the fields before the start of the season proper next week.
"It's our first home games and we didn't want to ruin the fields," she said.
Ms Hart said she would meet with the committee to discuss the threat of COVID-19, but as far as she was concerned the games would still be going ahead.
"We will have that discussion early next week," she said.
"But it's kind of not our call."
"Sunshine Coast Rugby League would let us know if they were going to call games," she said.
"It would be very rare for us to have a home game with 500 people or more anyway."
The robotics course at Peregian's Digital Hub this weekend has also been put on hold.
Host Jameson Harvey confirmed they have pushed the event back a week due to lack of numbers.
He was confident it would go ahead the following week and, in regards to the possibility of cancelling the event due to coronavirus, he said he would see how the week plays out.
"We'll play it by ear," Mr Harvey said.
