UFWDA has requested that the Designated Federal Officer (DFO) on the Cape Hatteras National Seashore Negotiated Rulemaking committee remove environmental plaintiffs from the committee. 

Our letter to the DFO is attached.

There will be a committee meeting for the Cape Hatteras National Seashore on June 17th and 18th.  Many members have asked what they can do to support the ORV community. 

It would be helpful to have attendance by the public at the June 17th and 18th meeting.  There is often press in attendance and it would help support our efforts and get the message out if 30 or 40 ORV users were present during the 2-day meeting.  No speaking is necessary, but if you would like to have a chance to speak there is a public comment period both days around the noon lunch time.  The important thing is to be present.  In addition to supporting ORV access with your presence the money you spend to attend the meeting (gas, lodging, food) will be a very, very big help to the local community. 

If you are intereseted in attending this meeting please contact me directly at attorney@ufwda.org.

I would really like to have 30 - 40 users at this meeting.  I realize it is a sacrifice to attend since it is on two weekdays (Tues. and Wed.).  But it is one very effective and meaningful way to help out.

Thank you,

Carla

Unfortunately, the June meeting was not an option for me. I am assuming that it would be supportive and useful for the OHV community to be represented by numbers at every meeting. Is that correct?

I'm currently looking at being available to attend the October sessions now that I've seen the schedule. (My club, CORE, has our annual run to the OBX --assuming there's enough of the seashore accessible to make it worth the trip-- tentatively scheduled for the weekend following the meeting.)

Is that a correct assumption on my part?

A change in scheduling meas I will be unable to attend the October session after all as I will find myself in Massachusetts next week instead of NC.

For info though, CORE will still be making our annual trek to OBX and staying in Buxton the weekend of Oct 31-Nov 2 if anyone wishes to hook up with us.

If I lived a little closer.
Even just a couple of states.

Thank you for your diligent work on yet another issue.
Wouldn't it be nice to run out of issues some day?
Instead, I worry about it getting even worse with the upcoming election. Undecided
