had a meeting blitz, 6 landowner/land manager meetings in 30 hours! We got a project going on ( NPS RTCA grant) and our staff person came over for a meeting blitz. On top of that, I'd had a meeting scheduled with the park board since Xmas that I thought was next week but was today.

It went something like this:
1. Utility land manager - wow, what a great proposal, how can we help? Our mapping dept is at your disposal. Oh, we hate motorized users on our land.
2. County parks - wow, what a great proposal, we support you,we hate motorized users on our land.
3. City parks, - wow, great proposal, this needs to happen, we hate motorized users on our land.
4. Kick off meeting. we had 10 rsvps and 85 people showed up. The plan to hand pick an advisory committee out of a few attendees had to be adjusted. Local property owners who have trails on their land say they like the idea, as does members of neighborhood council
5. Meet with regional health district physical activity director who is one of our partners. Ideas for where grant $$ might be found are generated as related to trailheads and neighborhood accesses.
6. Present to park board - talk a lot about what we have done for them, at no cost to them

I think I earned a beer or two.;)

Wow! If I counted right that is six meetings and worth six beers not two. And none of that Pabst stuff either. Just wish some of the Southern trail advocates were there to buy 'em and drink 'em with you.

Glad to hear things are going well up North. :thumbsup:
