A team of MDEG members passionate to Save the Drip worked diligently from 7.30am to 4pm at Gulgong Show in hot, dry, dusty and noisy conditions. The results were worth the effort. Many more names were added to the petition; Flyers and Fact Sheets taken; Raffle tickets sold and lots of interesting conversations were enjoyed.
Andrew Gee the Nationals MP, who helped us in the 2014 campaign in our efforts to have the Drip included in the National Park, was the official guest at the Show. We took the opportunity to invite him to come over to our display which he did. He agreed with us in our concerns that the National Park only covered a small area and that the land still owned by Moolarben is planned to be a State Conservation Area with the strong possibility of the tunnels to still go ahead. He has made a tentative date to meet with MDEG members at the Drip.
