Okay, as this is now all over the intardnet, and I'm pretty annoyed by the whole thing, I ain't gonna be bashfull about posting what I've found about it. To wit:


IMPORTANT UPDATE:

CODRA Paisley 400 Info:

Dear fellow racers, participants and fans,

It is our sincere regret to inform you that due to environmental concerns raised by an outside organization located here in Oregon, the 2010 Paisley 400 is being postponed.

This delay in the race date stems from concerns raised by the environmental/desert conservation group that BLM has not completed satisfactory requirements and administrative studies within our operations area.

We have met with both BLM, and the group, and have determined that the requirements for all related studies and environmental assessments must be met prior to our obtaining a permit for the event. These requirements, public comment periods and such will put us beyond the original planned date. Therefore the decision to postpone has been made. This was an extremely tough decision for us to make, however it has not discouraged us and we think it will be for the best.

Due to our increasingly shortened time line constraints, the necessary time for BLM to complete all of their administrative work and required studies, this leaves both BLM and CODRA with too little time to have a successful event for you, the racers.

Given these circumstances and the time frames involved with CODRA and BLM, we have made the decision that postponing the event 1 year will allow for all administrative procedures to be completed. This will also ensure that CODRA and BLM cover all requirements for putting an off road racing event like this together.

We view this minor setback as an opportunity to make sure that the event will be a great success and allow CODRA a complete planning time frame. This will likely increase attendance, and most importantly your enjoyment of the event!

We also feel that this will create an opportunity to gather more support for the people of Paisley, their businesses and most importantly the School by having an increase in attendance.

We are continuing in planning the event and having outings to gather more information about the area and possible course options.

Yours Truly,

Jared Ford, Kevin Hescock,
CODRA Staff.

Please ask us any questions you may have and keep checking back to the website for updated information. Don't get discouraged, we're not. This race WILL happen

The "outside" group www.onda.org

Please take time to explore their site. Most of the prime movers are out of area. When meeting with CODRA and BLM, they were not even listening to any concessions offered, and when asked if they'd been to the area, the answer was "No".

It needs to be stirred, ONDA wants to run the show all over eastern Oregon because they think they are so much better than the rest of us. Cross your Ts and dot your eyes because if they don't get thier way they will sue even if they are wrong, just to delay you and hope you go away.

Listen to that advice. Experience speaking, if I recall correctly.

Thanks for the list of ONDA supporters. Unfortunately there are a few on there whose products I have purchased in the past who will no longer receive any of my money. irtDOG:

REI perhaps?

We have a user on the board that works there. Perhaps they can shed some light as to WTH (what the heck) is up with that?
