Chass my friend,

You continue to say that none of the sites on your list have ever been 
inspected for use or followed up on, but this is not true.  In fact we 
have actually held events at some of these sites.  I listed the sites 
you sent me below.

Lake Eufaula State Park (SP)
Arrowhead State Park (SP)
Lake Wister State Park (SP)
Robbers Cave State Park (SP)
Lake Murray State Park (SP)
Black Mesa State Park & Nature Preserve (SP)
Boiling Springs State Park (SP)
Roman Nose Resort Park (SP)

Of those sites I know that we (the groups in the Northern Region) have 
actually held events at both Roman Nose and Lake Murray.  In fact we 
used Lake Murray at the Beltane my Lady and I autocrated a couple of 
years ago.  For this year's Beltane, we are using Will Rodgers Boy Scout 
Camp, which has electric and Handicap accessible facilities.  We are not 
the only group that uses this camp.  From what I can tell, your main 
complaint seems to be with Camp Cimarron, but most of the groups have 
stopped using it except as a last resort.  My main problem with your 
statement is that it implies that no one is doing anything to find 
better sites, when in fact, we have a number of people doing just that 
and we are USING those sites.  I hope that you will take a moment to 
recognize the work that IS being done to find better sites and the fact 
that groups are using them.

In Service,
