I was very excited to see this article in the paper on sunday. On the heels of a very successful appearing membership drive party, and a few weeks after the Ray's MTB article, it seems there is some really positive momentum out there.

I know you guys had a lot of ground to cover in this article, and I'm sure your space was limited. I wrote a letter to the editor expanding on the positive economic impact of Beverly Park to our community. Hopefully they decide to publish it. If not, I will post it up here and maybe it does some sort of good somehow?

Great idea! You might consider sending that letter also to the city council and parks and rec department. They can never hear enough about the positive things our group contributes to the community!
In fact, if our members all wrote to these groups, we might gain even more momentum for dirt.

Thanks John for the follow up. Who will be next? Let's see if we can flood local media and our elected officials with the benefits of dirt! If you need help with a letter or want suggestions, feel free to send me an email.
