|WARG was almost always short on money.
Membership was well supported but there was always the need for more
money. Several raffles were successfully run over the years but any
source of cash was looked at.
When a large security wire fence was available for removal at Moora, 200 kilometres NNE of Perth, several WARG members, with trailers in tow, headed to a property near Moora to remove the fence. An over night stay was needed and club members camped in the bush near the fence.
The recovery of the fence had options for WARG. Sell the fence or use some or all of the fence at Tic Hill. The fence was never erected at Tic Hill and was sold.
