Values of the Club

MacArthur 4 Wheel Drive Club is a family club and as such, we have a responsibility to the young people in our club to pass on a firm understanding of the following principles:

  • Respect for other people, their privacy and their property
  • Respect for fellow road users
  • Bush safety and awareness
  • Care of the environment
  • Respect for wildlife and their habitats
  • Safe and responsible 4 wheel driving
  • Safety in and around vehicles, especially during a recovery procedure
  • Correct use of communication devices and respect for other users
  • Safety around the camp particularly around fire and water

It is only by practicing these principles ourselves that we can teach our children. They learn by our examples.

A Good Example is a Good Lesson – Please Teach your Children Well
