BEACH CLOSINGS

Post  HYDRAFISH2 on May 9th 2008, 8:12 am

YOUR OPINION IS WELL TAKEN, FISHINGS, HOWEVER THOSE THINGS YOU HAVE MENTIONED WERE HAPPENING EVEN BEFORE THE FINAL NEGS. PEOPLE I KNOW OUT OF STATE ARE UNSURE ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN. Cool

beach access

Post  fishings on May 8th 2008, 10:47 am

After thinking about what has happened (closing the beach's best fishing areas) I believe that it would have been better to just totally close the beach. That way, it would have affected everyone here on the island as well as visitors (bird watchers, sunbathers, fishermen, people that just like to ride on the beach, campers, commercial fishermen etc.) This would have created havoc with all vacationers canceling their vacations instead of just people that like to fish. Many businesses would also be affected which would maybe get them involved with their pocketbooks and voice. This would have got a lot more attention then just closing it to fisherman which is essentially what has happened since it really only affects folks that like to catch fish . I'm not looking for an argument because I'm sure many will not agree but it was just my opinion. Have a good day.

I googled FOIA request samples and came up with loads. Can email some in word if it would help. Just PM your email - or google it yourself.

That is because a number of fisherfolks on the forums at www.reddrumtackle.com got together to try to blitz the media.

They have also suggested a calling, emailing, letter writing and FOIA Request campaign. All the names, addresses and other info are there. If they get enough FOIA requests, the gov't attorneys will get in the act in a serious way and try to fix it. They hate FOIAs.

Frank - I am willing to draft one for the OBPA that you can edit. Just send a PM with your email. Do you use MS Word? If not, I have other programs or can paste it in the body of the email.

See the posts for details. Most are in the RDT's Main Forum. You only have to register to post.

you can drive on "selected beaches" (at least for NOW). But they will be SO incredibly crowded.

Call/write/email your state and federal congress people - they can pass a law allowing access under the interim plan until reg/neg is completed. Yellowstone did this with snowmobiles.

SELC, AS and DOW appear to be dragging their feet since they got what they wanted with the consent decree. They are not willing to negotiate. BUT if the interim rules were reinstated - they would have to come to the table.

By the way - WHY are they STILL at the table. They agreed not to pursue litigation during the negotiations, and they left the meeting to run to the courthouse to file this suit. OBVIOUSLY NOT IN GOOD FAITH. OBVIOUSLY IN DIRECT CONTRAVENENTION of the negotiating agreement.




AS has been hemoraging members and $$ donations in recent times. From my understanding from a number of articles, they

Beach Closures

Post  Summer B on May 5th 2008, 10:23 pm

We'll be down in May - hard to believe we can't drive on the beach. This is so incredibly sad. I'm stunned this could happen in the USA. I've been doing the plea casts, writing to elected officials and Toyota. Is there anyway to find out what other corporations support the NAS? I certainly don't want to buy from anyone who is part of this tragedy.

I'm in shock

Post  Angel70 on May 5th 2008, 8:49 pm

I just can't believe it! Even though we all knew it was coming, I still just can't wrap my brain around the fact that they're really doing this.

I feel like I just lost my favorite place on Earth. Crying or Very sad

I understand that the NPS has found a tern trying to nest near the Point. Do not know what caused the Oregon Inlet and South Point Ocracoke to close.

According to Bob Eakes of Red Drum Tackle, Cyndy Holda of the NPS advised him that Oregon Inlet, Cape Point, and South Point at Ocracoke were all closed this afternoon.
