Jim,

Do you have the names and positions of the USFS representatives that were at the meeting? I'm horrible with names and wasn't clear what everybody's role with the USFS is.

These are who I noted - I think I got one name correct.

Jim Franzel (gray haired gentleman?) - District director?
New transfer from San Bernardino (I don't remember her name) - What is her role with the USFS?
Lady sitting to Jim's left (I think her name may have been Mary?) - What is her role with the USFS?
Gentleman sitting to her left - His name and role?
Officer on the end - Law enforcement officer for this part of the district.

I think for future meetings we may want to de-emphasize the fact that closing Evan's Creek will result in illegal activity elsewhere. We know this will happen and we know that the percentage of ORV users who participate in these activities are no greater than those in other recreation groups (hikers, bikers, etc.) who participate in similar illegal activities, but it was pretty obvious that the point was lost on Mary (?). It was apparent that her opinion of ORV activity was not favorable and that she would rather use those facts to shut down all motorized activity on public lands instead of leaving Evan's Creek open.

Thanks,
Willy
