I am busy today working on a ton of tax returns.

I wrote all the RTP Grants for FATS. $200,000 RTP. $70,000 USFS Centienial Fund. USFS matched the RTP Grants with $35,000 cash (paid for the parking lots, mostly). SORBA CSRA donated 2500 volunteer hours valued at $25,000.

HKSP…..funded with RTP.

Wine Creek rehab….RTP

Horn Creek rehad….RTP

Long Cane Horse Trail…..RTP

Alot of the MTB trails in Paris Mtn SP…..RTP

Back to FATS. Finally, about $10,000 was attempted to be raised from MTBers. This was after we had built the first 26 miles. I thought it was a no brainer….ask riders for donations. It was a total failure. MTBers simply would not donate in amounts that would be needed to even match the RTP Grants….and your brilliant idea is to rely on donations?

Jeff….do you often post about things in which YOU HAVE NO FUGGING CLUE?
