This is almost unanimous.

If the members want it, then we might have to bring this back to the table.

Regarding the upcoming race at Collie, would WAMBA give the "track money" to the Collie MTB club to pay for maintenance on Rays Trail?

This would be at the discretion of WAMBA.

At the moment PMBC would give you the funds, but approximately $600 does not go that far, if by showing your trails support racing and the growth of MTB, then it would seem fair that you should get greater funds to maintain and support the trails in your area.

Was that a yes or a no?

Zoom you are misunderstanding a key point. Martin is represent PMBC who are asking the question and running the races not WAMBA. Two very different and very separate organisations.

And yes I think that if money is raised for trail maintenance based on a race or event then it should only be for that area and no other.

Thanks John.
I understood the difference between the two organisations but Martin gave a fuzzy politician type answer by including the words "but" and "if" within the context of a promise.

Hi Zoom

I was not trying to complicate matters.

I would like to add just $5 to the price of entry of PMBC events, to give to the local clubs when we use their trails.

I am trying to be a fair as possible, but to be blunt, I would rather give it directly to the local clubs instead of going through WAMBA, cuts out the nonsense.

As we have always done, we will be offering this to Collie and any other club that wishes to assist us in running a XC event on their trails.

There will be more news to come, positive news for all clubs.
