New Leadership Correspondence Course for Recreationists

Submitted by tsm1 on Mon, 09/15/2003 - 13:09

I am tired of seeing recreationists trying to organize and lead projects while having little or no training on how to do it. I am tired of seeing volunteers burn out and leave the cause because of huge amounts of energy invested on their part, with little or no return. I am tired of seeing the same three or four people in a club doing all the work, year after year, until they finally fizzle out. I've decided to do something about it on a national level.

Conservation Project

Frontiers advertised conservation project for the LeadVille trail will happen Sept 6th. The project will be o­n Saturday leaving WhiteHouse camp ground (North of Butte) at 10 PM.

For those who want to camp (WhiteHouse camp ground) we will probably take some short trips Saturday night and or Sunday morning.

We will be doing some light brushing of the trail and surveying future erosion work that needs to be done to keep the trail in good shape.

With current fire danger we will need to be very careful. We are still under stage 2 restrictions, no camp fires, no chain saws after 1 PM, smoking in vehicles o­nly etc.

We could still cancel this project with short notice so please stay in touch with Frontier.
Call 406-458-9755 , 406-442-7749 or E-mail for directions of more information.

(aka: Getting the Attention of Bureaucrats and Politicians)

By Del Albright, BlueRibbon Ambassador

“You can’t convert a snake into a statesman by simply snipping his fangs; the instinct to bite will always be there!”

How on earth do you capture the attention of a bureaucrat so that your 4x4 letter doesn’t end up in the proverbial “stack” of unread letters? Perhaps it’s not fair to say unread; let’s say “sort of read but unheeded.”
