4WD club (inc) was formed in October 2004, by a group of 6
enthusiasts. The club was incorporated on 4th Feb 2005 (registration
number A1012031K). All but 2 of these founding members are still in
the club, and 2 are still on the committee, as detailed on our
Honour Board. The aim of this club is to create a small club of family
oriented people, who enjoy going recreational 4WDing and camping, as a
means of an escape from today's busy lifestyles. Our key goals in the
club are to make it as casual as possible, meaning very few meetings,
and the meetings themselves should be primarily a social function,
with the official business taking up only a small portion of the time.
To go 4WDing and camping with a minimum of political fuss, making it
really just a way of formalising a group of friends going out on a
social camping trip. A means of us all sharing ideas / parts / tips
etc with a bunch of like minded individuals.
we are a family based club, we want to encourage a non-smoking
environment, and so we have written our Smoking Policy.
Yes, you can still join the club if you are a smoker, but if you want
to smoke whilst you socialise, then our club may not be the best for
you. We also have a Dog Policy to set guidelines for
bringing your Dog on club events. As we usually have kids present on our club functions & trips, we also
try to keep swearing to a minimum. We adhere to our Code of Ethics and Safety standards too.
follow the Tread Lightly philosophy. That is, that we stick to defined
tracks, engage 4WD as soon as we leave the bitumen and let our tyres
down when on soft surfaces to minimise wheelspin, protect the
vegetation and wildlife etc. Although many of our member's 4WD's are
modified for better off road performance (big tyres, lifted suspension,
dif-locks etc), we are definitely not a bunch of rev-heads. I would
suggest that if you have a 4WD that resembles a monster truck, or has a
big noisy high performance V8 in it, then perhaps our club is not
suitable for you.
club makes extensive use of the internet. The club's primary means of
communications is via this web site, with all relevant items,
including upcoming trips etc, being posted on the various web pages.
All financial members of our club will also have access to our
Group email facility, which means that you can send a single email
which will be distributed to all financial members. Any such email
must be 4WD / club / camping related, as we do not want to be swamped
with junk emails, and anyone who sends such emails will be removed
from the group pronto!
