New Fees Sign in The Pines 17-Oct-2012 At 3:24:56 PM ado_m
Based email below though has more impact if it is customised. Alan is the ranger in charge I understand, haven't established if any relation to Darryl.


COMPLAINT: Camp fees - Arapalies - Attention: Alan Braithwait - Ranger in charge

Dear Alan

I am emailing to express my disappointment at Parks placing the sign below at Mt Arapalies.

Mt Arapalies is a unique and special place, well loved for its “dirtbag” culture, reasonable camp fees and inclusive culture.

$15 a night is unrealistic in the context that many people who attend have limited funds, are long term residents and individual campers cf groups of flushed campers in flash campervans.

A policy and sign like threatening disproportionate penalties seriously undermines the culture of Arapalies.

The lack of consultation and inappropriateness of the system is also very disappointing.

Can you please reconsider this decision and advise me in writing of the course of action taken by Parks?

Please do not mess with Arapalies, it is a special place!
