    How will it work? First 10 at the door get a voucher, or first 10 to the checkout?

      Hi,

      Thanks for your message.

      There will be an organised queue, and the first people in line will receive a ticket in line with the offer and will have their choice of products on sale. This will also ensure that no one can jump any queues and that there won't be a free for all inside just after opening - it will be monitored very carefully!

      The first offer is for the $10 skis that are available to the first 10 customers. Once this offer has been redeemed then the next lucky 20 customers are eligible to receive 50% off selected ski jackets and pants.

      Cheers!

    1 per household so make sure you fight with your partner over who gets the fancy new skis and who has to have some crappy rental ones next time you’re at the mountain.

    Dear OP

    Can you please PRECISELY detail:

    1. Your crowd management, overnight and event security and top ten places allocation process.

    2. That you are following the NSW Department of Premier and Cabinet event management guidelines:

    https://www.dpc.nsw.gov.au/tools-and-resources/event-starter...

    Are your Directors financially and legally prepared for extremely significant class action and liability claims should, for example, 5000 to 10,000 people attempt to crowd rush crush into, for example, the Auburn store - with many suffering severe crush injuries on the front stairs alone?

    Here's a example of a successful, $7 million crowd crush liability action:

    https://www.abc.net.au/triplej/programs/hack/falls-festival-...

    And another significant crowd crush event at Parramatta Westfield:

    https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-12-24/westfield-parramatta-...

    Here's a detailed Australian crowd management guide:

    https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=https:/...

    An event like this is not a time to treat customers like sheep.

    Clear communication

    Clear rules

    Clear and WIDELY COMMUNICATED totally fair allocation of the first ten places - so that EVERYONE knows - is one way to mitigate the above nightmares.

    Overnight security to remove risks of any safety issues affecting customers is also critical.

    All of the above risks - are now foreseeable events - and now that they've been publicly and precisely notified to participants and the Associated OP prior to the event : the liability chain is established and clear.

    Good luck and stay safe everyone.

        Thanks for clarifying.

        It's good to know that there's a process in place that everyone can now be aware of hopefully via social media and signage.

        Good luck everyone.

    Good attempt at getting people to queue outside the store for your "Snow Sale" …. just as the crowds do every year at Aldi.

  •  

    Bought myself one of these and now ready to fight for my set of skis
    https://decathlon.com.au/products/outshock-100-jockstrap-gro...

    Just kidding, we all know the first people there will just buy them even if they don't want them to flip on FB.

  •  

    It's the Atomic Vantage 75C ski for those wondering. Both men's and women's versions. Only about 2 of each size available so it's going to be a race for those first 10.

  •  

    Decathlon skis gear is very low waterproof rating for the price as well. If you want a 10K jacket, it looks like it's $249.
    They have 3K and 8K rating for cheaper clothes which is not great. I thought rhe cheaper aldi range was 10K and the premium stuff is 20K waterproof

  •  

    Thanks 8anzinga

    Interesting points.

    Questions for OP:

    Will each of the first ten people have their choice from the full size range of the skis on offer either to collect on the day - or to have ordered into the store later?

    Or are only a set, take-it-or-leave-it, fixed set of ski sizes available on the day?

    So for example - there may be only two men's extra large skis available - but ten customers now vying for just those two pairs of skis?

    Will the other customers then end up with, for example, the remnant kid sizes - which are of no use to those customers - for example.

    If the OP could clarify the above that would be excellent thanks.

    It's not clear as it stands.

      I'm pretty sure it is pick from what's available or nothing at all. It did say limited sizes and availability.
      The longest size is probably the least useful length as it would need someone around 190+cm tall or quite heavy to use. That leaves the other sizes. Just hope there is a mix of genders and heights/weights in the first 10.

      I'm guessing the ones that get them will be reselling them.

      Post a photo if you want people to believe it.
      Spending 10+ hours to save about $500 as thats what these would go on sale for.

      So how did decathlon staff track the first 10 as they said they would?

          I slept nicely in my warm bed, how you go camped out in 7degree weather with wind and rain?

        • +2 votes

          You shouldn't care but don't be surprised if people don't believe you. Even if you're telling the truth, I would rather be sleeping in a comfy bed instead of outside in the cold rain line a hobo! Lol

  •  

    lol who's got a photo?

  •  

    Any one at Tempe ?

  •  

    Anyone in boxhill?

    •  

      Yeah

      •  

        More than 10 in line already?

        • +1 vote

          I didn't end up going. The weather was pretty bad, bed seemed to be the better option.

  •  

    Bloody rascals have camped the night.. should make that against the rules…

    (At the Auburn store at least)

    Check out the Decathlon instagram page stories. https://www.instagram.com/decathlonau/ & https://www.instagram.com/decathlon_auburn/
    Tents were set up. Some bought portable stoves and cooked. Were allowed to play basketball and didn't need to stay in line it appears.
    Auburn seems to be the smarter option for Sydney as the line was under cover and more sheltered than Tempe.

    Any of you on here?

    It looks like some got skis that were as tall as they were which they will find out don't suit them later.

    •  

      My 5th set of skis and after skiing for 11 years, my favourite skis are all taller than me!

      But I do agree, for a large majority of those with taller skis, are still beginners and it sounds like they're intending to grow into them 😂

      • +1 vote

        Surely these skis are too soft for you after 11 years skiing then? Sure, its a killer deal but waiting 12 hours for a ski that doesn't suit experience/advanced skiers seems to be a waste. It doesn't even really suit Australian conditions as slightly wider would be better for that.

        Different types of skis suit different lengths but this ski is not a ski to get at the same height as you. Its a narrow, 75mm underfoot carve ski, ski for a beginner-intermediate so would be chin-nose height usually. Those with more experience, that want/need a longer ski, would be looking at better/other skis as they would out-ski this ski.

        •  

          Hardly a waste! I'll try them out and see what I think as I usually go for wider underfoot skis. Worst case, I'll sell these for a good profit and put that towards something else!

          Me and my partner rough it up quite often so camping out overnight wasn't a huge mission for us as well.

  •  

    So if anyone got a set of mens that are 165cm or bigger just because anything they wanted was sold out please let me know.
    If you are in Melbourne's East I will happily pay you 100% extra for them!
