    Default MTFF & Elk River Porta John Shame

    The MTFF Club had our annual Elk River clean up this past weekend (2/21/09).
    I decided to try a new route, long story short I got lost and arrived about 1.5HRS late. By the time I arrived I was looking foward of putting our Porta John we provide to good use. All that was left was the concrete slab. After i found a tree that to use as a replacement for the Porta John, I asked the other guys what happened. As it turned out the Porta John we had at Ferris Landing was burned up by someone, so we are assuming that the company took the one back at the dam to keep it from being destroyed.
    I don't know what we are going to do, but it is a shame that some people are so STUPID to destroy something that was put there to make their life a little easier and help protect their environment.

    Man what a bummer! Hope those responsible got scorched in the process.
    I really appreciated those being available.

    What kind of IDIOT would do something like that. Maybe as the season begins to develop there will be one put back. We can only hope that that one was destroyed by accident.

    Could we start a fund to get a perminent facility built? Maybe we can mention this when we start our e mail campaign about the Caney in April.

    MTFF has a grant from REI to provide the Porta Johns. Its not a very large grant but enough to keep them around for a couple years. I don't know what it would take to get a permanent facility built, but I am sure there would be several regs we would need to cover. I am sure most of the funds to do it would have to come from private funds. I am sure the club will talk about this at our next meeting.

    Rhonda Page @ Tim's Flies and Lies had a scare at the Ferris Bridge a little while back from an unseemly character. She packed it in. I'll miss that pit stop. TDS
