Appin getting run into the ground.

What is happening out at Appin?
It has the potential to be the best MX complex and it's close to a major city.
I know it is supposably run by MDMCS but nothing is getting maintained out there. The MX track is a dangerous write off full of gigantic holes and stupidly designed jumps. The car park is full of bogans doing burn outs. The bush out the back has people flying around in all directions and is beginning to look like "White rock".
How can they justify charging $25 a day for that. I went on Saturday and felt like it was just a waste of money and I don't often feel like that when I'm out riding. Does the club even get the money or does it just go in the gate guy's pocket? He didn't give me a ticket or check my membership.
Can anyone shed some light on the situation? I don't want to see what could be a great place close down.

I had it with them years ago,i sent a very nice letter to them asking all sorts of questions about track preperation and what the full time staff actually do there and ofcourse got no reply,i think dow was on holidays or driving his new car at the time
MX in sydney is all but dead unless you know someone with a private track
So i took up trail riding as it was the best thing i ever did

Thats the problem,now Kembla is way over crowded

I also took up trail riding because i got sick of the run down tracks and it just got boring going to the same place doing the same thing over and over.
Sometimes it is nice to go somewhere that you can ride flat out and really beat yourself up.
I also ride at Kembla, i have for the last few years. It just feels like ground hog day every time i go through the gates.
I have tried emailing MDMCS and i too got no response.

Its usually a 7 round series around Nsw where they mark out a natural terrain grass track. Amcross = Amatuer Cross. They have juniors sat then seniors sunday. It is aimed at average club level riders.
I have raced afew they are great fun.


I have never been a fan of appin, If its not muddy its dusty and hard pack. Id prefer to stay home and ride in my loamy dirt!
Appin has a stadium mx on this sat. Last years was pretty good although the track didnt hold up 2 well in parts.
