We have a winner!
The winner of the highly anticipated $12,000 Recreation Give-Away was drawn last week at the 1st Annual AMPL Public Lands Recreation Celebration. It was a somewhat anti-climatic moment for the 100+ people in attendance (who all wished for their name to be drawn) as Kathy Kaufman's name was called out. Her dutiful nephew, Wade Kaufman, was present and got Kathy on the phone to let her know about her winnings. Kathy plans to use the $12K to purchase recreational toys for her grandchildren--setting up the next generation to appreciate all the different ways to use our public lands. Sounds great to us, Kathy!
