My Name is Ray Frechette,


I am very much involved in the feffort to save Camp Gustin.


While there is significant frustration with Council we are not threatenting council or seeking a confrontational situation withthem.


Rather we are attemtpting to get council interested in working out a win win situation for them, the scouts in our district and the scouts in all opf council


We are trying to convince Council to sell the camp to us.


We would form a 501c3 non profit to raise funds and buy the camp and hold it in a land trust for the priority use of registered scouts and troops in Pine Tree Council.


Further we plan on stripping development rights from the land with deed restrictions and prevent any subdividing of the land so that this potential problem shall never occur again.


One cna either get angry or get busy and we are seeking to get busy and work with council in a proactive manner to bring about an excellent resolution for all involved.


Does anyone here wish to help us?


We are not asking for one red cent right now.


What would be very helpfull is to tkae about 20 minutes from your day and carry out the following tasks.
