New Projects Funded

08-Dec-2011

Some great news on the funding front! Thanks to the efforts of Motorcycling WA and the RTRA, the Department of Sport and Recreation has provided $60,000 in funding for recreational trail bike initiatives for education and communication, volunteer management and community awareness.

The RTRA and MWA will be using the funding to:

  • Develop a Volunteer Management System that supports the creation and ongoing management of local “Friends of” groups for off-road vehicle areas. The “Friends of Pinjar” will be the first group created.
  • Raise awareness of the activity, the regulations, the riding locations and minimal impact riding.
  • Consult with local government, retailers and trail and quad bike manufacturers to involve them in the issues and potential solutions that affect their areas. 

To progress this work the RTRA will be recruiting an Administration Officer on a 3 day per week, 10 month contract commencing mid to end of February 2012. The position will be advertised and members notified within the next couple of weeks.
