Hi All, Greg, I'm certainly not in favour of doing away with the Twitchathon 
and I would not take part from my armchair until the time arrives when I can 
not drive. There are other ways that it could be carried out, be more 
competitive and reduce fuel consumption.
In any event, in its present form it is not a level playing field as far as the 
main race goes.For example those contestants not on the east coast will never 
be able to win the main race unless they travel to the coast.This in itself 
probably stops some teams from entering.
It would be good if we could get some suggestions from B/ausers  on how we 
could run it and save fuel. I have one suggestion to kick the ball off in 
regards to the main race. The winner could be the one who counts the most 
species over a arbitrary figure say 130 in the least distance trailed.
 However the emphsis should be on raising the most funds not on the most 
keith b the beautiful Hawkesbury 60km N/W of Sydney
