Hold on, you're saying a "level playing field" and "if everyone can't get there, then no one can" but have no problem with quads and 4x4s opening up more of the beach and only make carrying the gear easier?
Same arguments could be said for boats and kayaks.
I'm not saying we have to fix this for the 2013 Nationals. I am saying that there are those of us who are NZACA associated who are interested in having it discussed calmly and logically and putting it through the proper processes and see what happens. Just cutting it off and dismissing does not promote a Positive Future.
