BLM Soliciting comments on the BITD 2009 TSCO "Vegas to Reno" Race
This is your opportunity to make a difference. The BLM is soliciting scoping comments on the Environmental Analysis (EA) being prepared in order to issue a Special Recreation Permit for this event. Go to ORBA’s Web site (www.orba.biz) and download the template scoping letter, rewrite it on a different sheet of paper and send it in to the BLM. We want to let the BLM know that our community supports this race.
The state of Nevada is a tourism-based economy, which has historically included events such as this to attract people to the state and its rural communities. This fact, along with the increased popularity of this type of recreation, magnifies the need for this type of event. The amount of public lands with established roads and trails makes this state uniquely equipped to host events of this type. By allowing this race to occur it will be fulfilling the recreation needs of the area and at the same time bring badly needed tourism dollars to the region.
