Please spread this to as many SAND SPORT ENTHUSIASTS & RELATED BUSINESSES as
possible. NOT ALL DUNE ENTHUSIASTS HAVE EMAIL. MANY WILL NOT GET THIS
MESSAGE. You may have to make copies and mail them out. If you own a Sand
Sport business, we urge you to send this to as many of your customers as
possible.

THE NEXT 90 DAYS ARE CRITICAL TO YOUR FUTURE. Now is the time to get
involved. You can make a difference. You can influence the future of the
sport and your business opportunities. The BLM Draft Recreation Area
Management Plan (DRAMP) for the Imperial Sand Dune Recreation Area (ISDRA)
will change your recreation and business opportunities forever. Our
comments now will influence our freedoms in the future.

ABOUT THE PLAN
-- Will last for 10 to 15 years!
-- Includes VISITOR CAPACITY LIMITS, law enforcement objectives, DUSK TO
DAWN CURFEWS and ALCOHOL USE LIMITATIONS that could be in place by Oct of
2002.
-- The Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) includes four management
alternatives. The DRAMP is the BLM preferred alternative and is very
restrictive.

WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Go to an ASA RAMP INFO MEETING (Different information than what will be
presented at the BLM meetings.)
-- We will tell you times and places when available. The schedule of
meetings in your area will also be on the ASA websites
(www.americansandassociation.org and www.GlamisOnLine.org).
The ASA meetings will enable you to:
-- Get involved, become informed, and provide comments that make a
difference.
-- Take the lead and encourage your duning friends and business associates
to get involved.
