WCCC Meeting of December 18th

The coalition meeting on December 18 had a low turnout, but we met some new folks, including the new Core Elements manager (Ryan Dutch) and a representative of the Colorado Environmental Coalition (Kate Graham). Board members Kris Hjelle, Jesse Zacher, and Eve Tallman attended. Newcomer Michael Hale also signed on. The bulk of our time was devoted to learning from Kate about the scoping comment period (through January 9) on the BLM's new Resource Management Plan. This plan will encompass several climbing areas, including Escalante, Unaweep, Gateway, Palisade, Bangs Canyon, and Rough Canyon. It also includes many mountain biking areas, including North Fruita. All WCCC members are encouraged to email their comments to the BLM. Find the link by googling BLM Grand Junction Field Office and look for the scoping comments form (PLEASE RESPOND BY JANUARY 9).
We sold several WCCC shirts to the gym climbers during the evening, and would like to encourage WCCC members to pick up a shirt for $10 at Summit Canyon Outfitters or (coming soon) to Core Elements.
