A spokesperson for the group said that they were affiliated with the MHCA (Motor Home Club Of Australia), a 100,000 strong group of like minded souls who travel far and wide.

“We call ourselves the ‘Eagles’ and have 156 members. Mostly we ramble around the Lower Hunter,” she said. “We try to plan our outings around fairs and events,”she added.

“Recently we travelled to Wollembi, Paterson and Broke and soon we will be off to Stroud for the annual Brick throwing festival.”

The Eagles send out scouts to ‘sus out’ varied locations as well as getting feedback from other groups when deciding where to go.

In the case of this solo group they had been recommended to camp out at the Tilligerry Scout Hall but it was considered too small.

The nearby RSL Oval proved to be ideal for the expected 30 mobile homes.

Another member stated that their ‘Leave no Trace’ policy was rigidly enforced and they were welcomed with open arms wherever they went.

“We are off to the RSL for the raffles and a meal tonight,” he said “and a few of our members might chance their luck on the pokies. It’s a win,win all ’round,” he added.

When we mentioned the ‘Dump Point’ for waste located in Henderson Park LTP we were informed that they were well aware of it. Infact they were proud of that the MHCA had provided many such facilities Nationwide in tandem with the Federal Government which had injected some $600,000 into the scheme’s rollout.
