Townsville Boat Ramp Rally

In today's Townsville Bulletin Eddie Riddle announced that there is a small group of "disgruntled anglers are planning a 'better boat ramps' rally that could well turn into a blockade of the fast-approaching Townsville 400 V8 Supercar event". The full article can be read by following this link.

I would just like it to be publicly know that neither myself nor the team are responsible for this proposal. I have simply organised the online petition and been the one to contact TCC and Anna Bligh with regard to our needs. Anyone proposing to organise a blockade is doing so without consultation with myself or anyone from this site.

My fear is that our cause needs positive publicity in the media rather than negative. However, I share the frustration of trying to bring this problem to the attention of the State Government. To date I am still waiting for a rely from Anna Bligh.

It will be interesting to see if this action is supported by the majority of the boating community or not.
