Hi,
    This is not the first time a jumping castle has lofted with wind. Surely they should be tethered?

Ever seen a tethered gazebo, marquee etc take off? Wind can be powerful and a strong gust can come from nowhere.
Just a tragic situation that will effect so many lives.

I'd say before we string the bloke up, wait for the results.

There were also those "Zorb ball" things - which you dont tie down.. light weight young kid in it would take off..


We had a castle years ago for Cammo's birthday and this bloke used what looked like old car axles into the ground about 2-3ft and some serious rope.

Scanning QR reintroduced in NSW.
I thought QR code scanning info was a tool to assist contact tracing so that peolpe can be tested and isolated if necessary. If this is the function, why would they bother reintroducing it? From the ABC news site:
Key points:
The capacity rules for indoor venues are in place until January 27
The Health Minister says everyone will get Omicron 
The Opposition says the government needs to have a better plan to manage the health care system

QR scanning stopped about 10 days ago, started again Friday.
I noticed in my history, checkin's, even tho I got the Green Tick, signed out, loggins were missing.
I could enter 6-8 places in a day, some places(hardware store) 3 or 4 times never showed in the history, so how would they trace my movements?
Others have mentioned this as well.

Same, I can recall where I've been.
I did read somewhere, some people who they were trying to trace(not using qr) were telling fibs about where they had been.
:( which made it hard to trace the spread.

Hi,
   Google can (and did)  track our every move around Aus in 2019. Very accurate unless we were out of cell coverage.
I'm surprised we even need a special App, let alone physically photograph the QR code.
