Updating as we go...

Why does the cost not cover entry into Byrds or camping?

Short Answer: Insurance purposes. You can find Byrds camping costs here, and their 4x4 use costs here.

Why isn't this one continual event?

I would like to keep the OOR free of charge, thus I am letting a club take over so that through volunteers it will stay that way.

The OCS will be every bit as fun, but because of the shear amount of work involved it will require an entry fee.
