General Membership Meeting

Tuesday, October 1, 2013 - 18:45

The location of our monthly General Membership meeting is the Marriott Suites in Old Town Scottsdale. The Marriott is located immediately east of Scottsdale Road at 7325 East Third Avenue, just one block north of Indian School Road. Join Elias Butler, one of our favorite speakers, as he presents a magnificent slide show and shares some very serious concerns about Oak Flat. The Mesa we know as Oak Flat, beautiful landscape that was set aside for permanent preservation in the 1950s by President Eisenhower, is facing a daunting challenge. A bill currently in Congress would privatize this federally protected recreation area, so that a foreign copper mining company can operate a massive mine here. Such action would destroy a magnificent area for rock climbers, hikers, birdwatchers, hunters, and canyoneers. Should this action come to pass, you might want to place Oak Flat on your immediate bucket list. You don't want to miss this meeting.
