If anyone of you can attend, please do!

By Fred AmRhein
In a continuing effort to keep climber's advised of what's going on with the proposed Oak Flat land swap:


Interior Secretary Salazar and Senator John McCain will be holding a Town Hall meeting at the Superior High School on August 21st at 11:30 in the morning to hear what the public has to say about S. 409, the Oak Flat land exchange bill.


Why it's important: The Secretary oversees many of the issues regarding the land beneath Oak Flat and Senator McCain is pushing the land trade bill hard in the US Senate. Interior plays an instrumental role to what/how/when happens to our beloved Oak Flat/Queen Creek climbing areas as the mining company continues its efforts to privatize much of it.

If you can attend to voice your concerns, great, if not and would still like something said on your behalf, post up or send an email and I'll do my best to get it included.

Thanks,

Fred
