yes we do but not without complaint to Forestry about noise etc.

the Idea of a trailbike freiendly area is to try and keep bikes away from the general public and stop or reduce the complaints.

Families can use the bike area if they wish, but if they dont like the noise etc, then they shouldnt whinge about it

Similairly bikes will be encouraged to use the bike area not he general public areas.

2 Trac has 10 committee members whose names i don't have the right to post without there permission. The convener for Trac is Rodney Cartwright ph 0427277888

3 yes if approved by the committiee

4 yes but we would like to keep it to small meetings, we would like to have one member from an organisation who can report back to the other individuals (Glenn) is attending for DBW.

5 yes no monies will be paid out unless approved by the committee and financial reports are available as per normal corporations law.
Thanks Mudrat for chasing up this info.

I guess in the absence of anyone else from DBW volunteering for this onerous task, by default, you been lumped with the responsibility of being DBW's "Democrat" (Keep the Bastards Honest!!!) at TRAC committee meetings, plus taking the responsibility of chasing up and passing information back to us here on DBW. I reckon in this case the saying "Don't Shoot the Messenger" should be applied. In fact, I think we all owe you a vote of thanks for taking on this time consuming and unrewarding task on our behalf.

Like Muffie, I must admit that up to now, I have been highly sceptical and critical of the whole TRAC thing. But short of us DBW guys getting up off our own "Arse's" and doing something positive to help ourselves, I feel it may be in our best interest for us to just hitch our wagon onto TRAC and see where it takes us.

At least if it all falls over and goes to shit down the track we will have someone else to blame and say we told you so to.

Failing that, our other alternative would be to offer to resurrect the DSMRA branch in this area. The advantage here being that the DSMRA is already onboard and a key player in the Watagans movement that is now in place.

What would be required of us is to get the Newcastle/Lake Macquarie Branch/Area Coordinator up and running again. The DSMRA is already a fully functioning operation with credibility and clout. It would just require us to man it. ANY VOLUNTEERS>>?????

My first take is that going through an existing national organisation (DSMRA) would be a better move- but if nothing is happening locally what then? Like Seahorse said - any volunteers?

The people involved in TRAC used to be DSMRA organisers if my memory is correct. I'm not a DSMRA member so I could be wrong.

The current TRAC setup seems something of a benevolent dictatorship which is fine to get things happening but not necessarily democratic. Which may or may not be a bad thing. I'm not being at all critical in saying this. I'm sure they have their reasons for doing it that way and the rest of us who do nothing can hardly complain.

If that ends up being the case there will be two of us eating "Humble-Pie"... and the way I've seen you get through those huge steaks at the Kew pub you will probably eat my share

the same goes for me if I do get lead up the proverbial gardan path them so be it, but the options atm are few and far between.
If we don"t do something soon, could you or anyone else for that matter tell me we our kids or their kids are going to ride in the future ???????????
