    This points out that the USFS is not the enemy. As an organization, they are dedicated to "multiple use", and some local administrators choose to use such things as rally to illustrate how that can work. Others don't see rally as a valid use, and you may not be able to change their minds.

    An article like this can be really helpful in introducing yourself and your proposed rally to USFS landowners - and it doesn't hurt when talking to other public entities that have multiple use in their charters.

    I am actually in prelim discussions with our local USFS and this article was posted within days of our first conversations. The ranger was impressed to see this article and excited to share it with his peers!

    I'll keep you posted on how it goes here in the Northwest! Wish us luck!

    Nice little story, some good news is always welcome!

    For four hours, once a year, a small town in the Ottawa National Forest comes alive with noise, cars, people, and national news attention. You gotta be here to see it! It is quite the event.
    Yeah, I have always been amazed at how Kenton comes alive one nite a year. We pass thru a few times during the summer, I always like to stop & have a look around.

    BTW, the author (John Wigand), beyond writing this article for the USFS, is he involved at all with LSPR? I don't recognize his name, but then I don't know everyone involved with the rally. Just wondering if he is a rally fan and is one of the many volunteers.

    If you click on his name, an USFS e-mail address shows. Not a volunteer. It's better. He's a fan and is an USFS Ranger. Google shows a number of these Success Stories with his byline.
