Comment on No plans to stop NATS: Gunner by R Henry.

The event puts money into more than Alice Springs. From the time the participants start to arrange to go to the location, Alice springs or elsewhere, they start putting money into the economy all the way there and back so it would be very short sighted to ban the event.
It is a big draw-card coming to Alice Springs and they bring their supporters who all spend money, also tourists who would have moved on often extend their stay out interest or curiosity or simply to be able to say they saw the Nats at the Alice.
It would not take a great amount to resolve the safety factor just a one meter high panel on the bottom of the fence with a further meter of wire netting or mesh along the top.
