    OFFICIAL MEADIA RELEASE

    SUCCESSFULL RECREATION EXPO STAGED IN WATAGAN STATE FORESTS
    The First Forest Recreational Expo to celebrate the diverse and active pursuits
    undertaken in the State forests of the Watagan Mountains was held Sunday 5th
    November.
    Forests Recreational Council Secretary and event coordinator, Mr Rod Cartwright,
    said that a number of forest user groups had come together to stage the inaugural
    Forest Recreation Expo at one of the Watagans most popular sites. The aim of the
    expo was to showcase local forest-based recreation and sporting pursuits and give
    people the opportunity to learn about the area and activities.
    “The Forest Recreation Council was formed to promote responsible use of State
    forests and other public lands in the Hunter Region and Central Coast,” Mr Cartwright
    said. “Council membership currently includes the four-wheel drive association,
    Australian Horse Alliance, Dual Sport Motorcycle Riders Association, Trail Riders
    Action Committee, Mountain Bike Association, National Parks and Wildlife Service
    and Forests NSW.
    “We have tens of thousands of people visiting the Watagans each year for sport and
    recreation. Many of the people using the forests are members of responsible clubs,
    but many others aren’t aware of the groups or the benefits of being a member.
    “Forests NSW are working with the Forest Recreation Council to encourage
    responsible use of State forests, and also to develop a partnership approach to the
    management of many issues like anti-social behaviour and dumping of rubbish.”
    “The Watagan forests are vital for our recreational pursuits, providing the opportunity
    for locals and tourists to freely enjoy the great outdoors.
    Mr Cartwright said that participating associations had stalls and demonstrations at
    the expo site, located at Olney Camping Area where people were able to talk to club
    representatives about safe and sustainable ways to enjoy local State Forests and
    national parks

              Struth!!!! and I thought I had bad eyes!
              Used to be able to drive my VW beetle on the sand out to the point at GHOSTIES near Catherine Hill Bay, then the Four wheelers came along and stuffed it.
              Just an example
              I could go on!

                Its not that I'm against 4 wheelers, they are a legitimate Forest users just as we are.

                But I have seen some huge "puddles" created by 4wd drives trying to to "tuff truck type stuff in and area that can't handle it.

                Having said that, if ALL forest users don't get together and try and work as one to save what we have left of our Recreaction areas then we are not going to get any where fast.

                  I think that 4 wheelers and the damage that "some of them" create could be one of the things that will make your quest with TRAC a dificult one mudrat!
                  Good luck

                      I have no idea,but I have mates that are 4wheelers and I often say the same thing to them,just as they whinge to me about loud bikes or punks on motocrossers hooning around in shorts and thongs.
