The future of the Border-Walwa Football Netball club could be determined over the weekend.
It's feared the recent bushfires in the Upper Murray region could signal the end of the battling club.
Already battling a chronic player shortage, the resilient Magpies are without a coach and a committee with the season two months away.
The Magpies will hold their annual general meeting on Sunday with last year's co-coach Ash Greenhill conceding the club was battling before without the devastation of the bushfires.
"To be honest, the plight of the football club is the last thing on people's minds after the bushfires," Greenhill said.
"It will be interesting to see what happens at Sunday's meeting.
"I don't know, it can go one of two ways - especially after what's happened.
"People want the club to survive but it is not the priority after the fires."

Greenhill, who has played more than 100 matches with the Magpies, said he was prepared to coach again if it meant the club could survive at least another season.
"I've already put my hand up to coach if the club doesn't fold," he said.
"The club was close to signing a coach but got stuffed around again, as happens every year."
Walwa amalgamated with the Jingellic-based Border Football Club in 1960 to become The Border-Walwa Football Club.
The Magpies won their last premiership in 1998.
