I encourage you let your opinions be know to OSMP about the nearly one month closure—flooding was 9/12—of our only flying site in Boulder. You can call Jim Reeder at 303.859.1555 or email him at ReederJ [at] bouldercolorado [dot] gov
You can also come to OSMP board meeting Wednesday at 6PM at the Municipal Building—Canyon & Arapahoe or do them all.
We pilots need to have our voices heard and express our willingness to volunteer to help restore our only access trail—-several of us hiked the trail during the temporary opening and saw no serious problems. Ask OSMP what prevents us from safely hiking it or what further damage our hiking could cause. If North Boulder is really too damaged will they re-open other flying site they have allowed us to fly in the past?
Take a few moments to help restore flying in Boulder.
I’ll be at the meeting.

Subject: RE: Update on OSMP Land Closures
First let me say that Michele did forward your Oct 2 email to me last week. It was one of many that I got, and am still getting, asking for some change to our recovery process. I apologize that I did not get to your email and get back to you.
The answers to your questions are:
The rule was made by the OSMP Flood Recovery Management team after considerable discussion about how to protect the OSMP natural resources, offer some level of system use by the public, not overload the parts of the system that we do open and at the same time be as fair as possible to the most people.
You can talk to me about the silliness if you would like. You always have the option to talk to our Board as well. As it happens, their next meeting is tomorrow night, 6:00, Municipal Building.
