Ouch... anything we can do to help turn things around? PM me if needed. I'd love to have another close/local option and I am willing to put in time to make it happen.

I ran into someone on the parks committee tonight at Bass River. He said there's just one more hurdle to get through, and he said he was confident that everything was going to be approved. He didn't mention a time frame, though.
