CALIFORNIA - Inyo NF Seeks Input on Proposal for Changes to Motorized Trails near Mammoth Lakes
Greetings BRC Action Alert Subscribers,
The Mammoth and Mono Lake Ranger Districts of the Inyo National Forest are initiating an environmental analysis for changes to the motorized trail and road network on the two districts.
The Motorized Transportation System Modifications project will consider adding and removing routes in various locations - mainly between Mammoth Lakes and Lee Vining. The purpose of the project is to improve important recreational, tribal and permitted-use access and address safety concerns, while improving resource conditions.
The complete proposed action with detailed project area maps is available on the Inyo National Forest website at Forest Service. Hard copies can be obtained at Mammoth Lakes Visitor Center at 2510 Hwy 203 in Mammoth Lakes, or Inyo National Forest Supervisors Office at 351 Pacu Lane in Bishop, CA. You can also request a copy of the proposed action by contacting Jon Kazmierski at 760-924-5503 or [email protected].
The proposed action is currently available for a 30-day scoping period. The Forest Service invites your comments regarding issues, opportunities, concerns, and suggestions for the proposed project. Your comments will be most helpful if received by November 15, 2014. The Forest Service anticipates releasing a Draft Environmental Assessment for this project in late spring of 2015, providing additional opportunities for your input during a formal comment period prior to the final decision.
Please send your comments to the project manager, Marty Hornick at 351 Pacu Ln, Suite 200, Bishop, CA, 93514 or [email protected], 760-873-2461. Please direct questions about this project to Jon Kazmierski, District Recreation Officer at 760-924-5503 or [email protected].
Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.

SOUTHEASTERN STATES - BLM Releases Draft RMP / EIS for Public Review and Comment
Greetings BRC Action Alert Subscribers,
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Southeastern States Field Office (SSFO) has released their Draft Resource Management Plan (DRMP) and Draft Environmental Impact Statement (DEIS) for your review and comment. The purpose of this draft document is to layout a vision for managing 2,991 acres of public land surface and 1,026,176 acres of Federal mineral ownership in the states of Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and Virginia. When approved, this RMP will guide the management of public lands administered by the Southeastern States Field Office into the future.
The BLM encourages the public to provide information and comments pertaining to the proposed decisions and the analysis presented in the Draft RMPIEIS. The draft RMP presents broad goals and objectives for resources associated with these lands, together with alternatives for allowable use and management actions. While BLM responsibility within the planning area is largely for mineral ownership, BLM is also interested in developing a long-term strategy for management of the resources and recreational uses associated with the small public surface tracts in Arkansas, Louisiana, Florida and Virginia.
The BLM is committed to working closely with the public to develop a strategy and find solutions that offer opportunities for multiple uses of the public lands, while protecting the natural and cultural resources for future generations.
It is important for local OHV enthusiasts and clubs to review the plan on how it might impact current and future casual and permitted OHV use.
Your review and comments on the content of the draft RMP/EIS are critical to the success of the planning effort. Your comments will be taken into consideration when the BLM proceeds to the next phase of the planning process, which is development of the Proposed RMP/Final EIS. The decision maker may select various management decisions from each of the alternatives analyzed in the Draft RMPIDEIS for the purpose of creating a management strategy that best meets the needs of the resources and values in this area under the BLM multiple use and sustained yield mandate. As a member of the public, your timely comments on the Southeastern States Draft RMPIDEIS will help formulate the Proposed RMP/Final EIS. Comments will be more helpful if they are as specific as possible and include suggested changes, sources or methodologies and reference a section or page number. Comments will be accepted for ninety (90) calendar days following the Environmental Protection Agency's (EPA) publication of its Notice of Availability in the Federal Register. The BLM can best utilize your comments and resource information submissions if received within the review period.
Comments may be submitted electronically at: [email protected]. Comments may also be submitted by mail to: SSFO RMP Comments, 411 Briarwood Drive, Suite 404, Jackson, Mississippi 39206. To facilitate analysis of comments and information submitted, we strongly encourage you to submit comments in an electronic format.
Before including your address, phone number, email address, or other personal identifying information in your comment, be advised that your entire comment - including your personal identifying information - may be made publicly available al any time. While you can ask us in your comment to withhold your personal identifying information from public review, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to do so.
Public meetings to provide an overview of the document, respond to questions, and take public comments will be announced by local media, website, and/or public mailings at least 15 days in advance.
Copies of the Draft RMP/DEIS have been sent to affected Federal, state and local government agencies and tribal governments. Copies of the Draft RMP/DEIS are available on the BLM website at RMP Documents. Copies are also available for public inspection at the following BLM location:
Bureau of Land Management
Southeastern States Field Office
411 Briarwood Drive, Suite 404
Jackson, Mississippi 39206
For additional information or clarification regarding this document or the planning process, please contact Gary Taylor, Planning and Environmental Coordinator, at (601) 977-5400.
Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.

WASHINGTON - Teanaway Community Forest To Host Public Open House

Dear BRC members, supporters and action alert subscribers,


Back on October 14, 2014, we sent out a partner alert (see previous alert below) on the Teanaway Community Forest from our friends over at the Washington Off-Highway Vehicle Alliance (WOHVA). In it we urged our members to take advantage of the opportunity to let the Washington State Department of Natural Resources (DNR) know that ORV trails in the Teanaway Community Forest are important to you and also an appropriate use of the public forest lands.

Even though agencies will tell you that email form letters or surveys don't count - they DO! Regardless of what you have been told... agency staffers still count the number and content of each email comment (i.e. vote).

Once again, your comments are needed so let the DNR know your thoughts on the Teanaway Community Forest by going to this website and adding your pro-ORV comments: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/K82Q3RP

The Teanaway Community Forest will also be hosting a Public Open House on Thursday, December 4, 2014, from 5:00 to 8:00 p.m., at the Swauk Teanaway Grange, 1361 Ballard Rd. West, Cle Elum.

For more information, contact DNR's Southeast region office at 509-925-8510, or visit the Teanaway Community Forest website at http://www.dnr.wa.gov/BusinessPermits/Topics/OtherLandTransactions/Pages/amp_teanaway.aspx

Thanks in advance for your involvement,

[HR][/HR] WASHINGTON - Help Save Teanaway Forest
Dear BRC members, supporters and action alert subscribers,
We received an update from Tod Petersen, Political Action Committee Chairman for the Washington Off-Highway Vehicle Alliance (WOHVA), on the Teanaway Community Forest.
Tod Petersen is also Legislative/Land Use Coordinator - Northwest Motorcycle Association. BRC urges our members to take advantage of this opportunity to submit pro-OHV comments in the flyer below.
We've pasted his update below. Please take a second to look it over and pass it along.
If you aren't a member of WOHVA, please consider joining today. Tod's efforts at the capitol have certainly earned the support of all Washington's OHV enthusiasts.
Thanks in advance for your involvement,

HELP SAVE TEANAWAY FOREST
Last year the State purchased a huge piece of land in the headwaters of the Yakima Basin from a private timber company with the intent of creating the Teanaway Community Forest. The stated goals include preserving working forest lands and enhancing recreational opportunities.
To help guide the State in implementing this plan a citizen advisory committee was formed. There are 20 members on the advisory committee, but the DNR allowed only one person to represent motorized recreation.
Deck is stacked against us so if ORV enthusiasts don't get more involved we will lose out on this excellent riding area opportunity.
The DNR has a legal requirement to allow multiple uses of the land when it does not compromise their trust management obligations. ORV use has historically proven to be one of the most compatible uses within working forests and as such should be prioritized accordingly.
ORV recreation is been proven example of a form of recreation compatible with working forests and has been taking place in this area for at least four decades.
Even prior this community forest legislation, the DNR has been directed by RCW79.10 to facilitate multi-use public access whenever it is compatible with their trust obligations.
The DNR is continuing to collect comments on how the Teanaway Forest should be managed.
You can help out by going to this website and adding your pro-ORV comments:
https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/K82Q3RP
The next step is contact your State Senator and both of your State House of Representative members and let them know that ORV trails in the Teanaway Community Forest are important to you and an appropriate use of the public forest lands.
You can find your State Legislators by going to http://app.leg.wa.gov/districtfinder/
For more information on how you can help save the Teanaway Forest and other ORV issues, go to www.nmaoffroad.org and www.wohva.org. See how you can join us in the battle to protect our right to recreate on public land.

ARIZONA- Early Opportunity to Preview Four Forest Restoration Initiative (4FRI) FEIS/Draft ROD

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

The Forest Service is providing the public with an early opportunity to preview the Final Environmental Impact Statement (FEIS) and draft Record of Decision (DROD) for Phase 1 of the Four Forest Restoration Initiative (4FRI). The FEIS and DROD for the first analysis area on the Coconino and Kaibab National Forests will be available by November 21, 2014, at the 4FRI website at www.fs.usda.gov/main/4fri/planning

In order to allow additional time for public consideration of these extensive documents, online access to the FEIS and DROD is being made available prior to the official start of the formal objection period.

The FEIS analyzes about one million acres on the Coconino and Kaibab National Forests in northern Arizona. The Coconino and Kaibab National Forests are proposing 586,110 acres of restoration activities with approximately 355,708 acres on the Flagstaff, Mogollon and Red Rock districts of the Coconino NF and 230,402 acres on the Williams and Tusayan districts of the Kaibab NF. The completed environmental analysis and a subsequent final ROD for Phase 1 provide the legal authority to accelerate restoration activities.

In accordance with federal regulations, the Forest Service will offer a 45-day formal objection period on the FEIS, which will begin with the publication of the Notice of Availability (NOA) in the Federal Register. The NOA is expected to be published in early December 2014.

Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.

P.O. Box N

Email: [email protected]
Dear Inyo County Board of Supervisors;
I want to express my strong support for the ATV Adventure Trails System of the Eastern Sierra being considered by the Inyo County Planning Commission for combined-use routes pursuant to Assembly Bill 628 (AB 628).
The 2005 Forest Service Travel Management Rule and its subsequent planning efforts often require county government to designate certain non-federal, public, paved and non-paved roads as available for non-street-legal OHV use to act as connector routes.

I urge the Board of Supervisors to approve this critical transportation project. Thanks for working on this important recreation effort!
Sincerely,
John Doe

CALIFORNIA - Comment Period Extended on Draft Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,

In response to public requests, the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS), California Energy Commission (CEC) and California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW) will extend the public comment period for the draft Desert Renewable Energy Conservation Plan (DRECP) Environmental Impact Report/Environmental Impact Statement (EIR/EIS) for 45 days.
The comment period, originally scheduled to close on January 9, 2015, will be extended through February 23, 2015.
The draft DRECP is an innovative renewable energy and conservation plan covering more than 22 million acres of land in Imperial, Inyo, Kern, Los Angeles, Riverside, San Bernardino and San Diego counties. The draft is the result of collaboration among the BLM, FWS, CEC, CDFW and other stakeholders.
BRC staff attended the November 13 DRECP public meeting in Sacramento and believe the planning group, in their preferred alternative, have done a good job protecting a number of destination OHV areas. The DRECP in its preferred alternative would place those riding areas in Special Recreation Management Areas.
Map of SRMAs
Proposed Special Recreation Management Areas (SRMA), Alt. 2 | DRECP Gateway
BRC urges the OHV community to review the preferred alternative on how it might impact current and future motorized recreation including permitted events. Comments should focus on how OHV recreation in the preferred alternative might be enhanced or modified.
A recorded informational webinar to help the public navigate the DRECP documents is available at www.drecp.org. The website also contains instructions for providing written comments on the draft document.
The draft DRECP EIR/EIS is available for review and download at www.drecp.org, at local libraries and agency offices, and on DVD. To request a DVD, please send an email request to [email protected] or call (866) 674-9996 and provide a mailing address. For a list of local area libraries and agency offices that have the document on file (most are on DVD), please visit www.drecp.org/draftdrecp.
Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.

MONTANA - Lolo National Forest Travel Analysis - Request for Comment

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,


The Lolo National Forest (LNF) is preparing to conduct a Travel Analysis to identify the minimum road system needed for safe and efficient travel and for administration, utilization, and protection of National Forest System lands. We are asking you to review and comment on questions that will be used in this analysis to assess the risks and benefits of National Forest System Roads (NFSRs).

BRC believes that OHV recreationists should ask the agency to develop travel management strategies as part of their forest road planning efforts.

Here are several concepts that OHV users should ask the agency to include in the forest road planning process. Road closures should not be the only management tool.

ML 3 Roads to Trails - Reclassify ML3 roads to ML2 roads. Reclassify ML2 road to motorized trails or manage appropriate ML2 roads as "roads managed as trails." Manage appropriate ML1 roads as "motorized trails."

ML 2 Roads to Trails -
Convert "roads-to-single track trails" or "roads-to-motorized trails less than 50 inches in width" and "roads managed as motorized trails greater than 50 inches in width" as a tool to help the agency achieve its budget objectives while still providing a substantive and high quality recreational route network.

Advise the FS on Minimization - The agency has broad discretion applying the minimization criteria and is certainly not obligated to restrict motorized access, particularly in response to the subjective complaints or other "evidence" provided by self-interested non-motorized use advocates. The agency cannot be strong-armed into motorized road closures or restrictions, and a well-reasoned and documented balance affording reasonable opportunities to a spectrum of recreational uses will be upheld by the courts.

To provide comment, the Forest Service has created an interactive map-based website that can be accessed using the following link: https://my.usgs.gov/ppgis/studio/launch/23209. This site includes a map of the Forest's road system and other resource information. This comment website will be available from November 18 to December 18, 2014.

Comments may also be submitted to the project team coordinator at:

Forest TAP Coordinator
Lolo National Forest
Building 24, Fort Missoula
Missoula, Montana 59804

Or, submitted electronically to: [email protected]. Please include Forest TAP Comment in the subject line.

Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.

Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
Due to large amount of land-use issues currently going on, we have combined everything into a National Land Use Update. Please review the below information to see if any of these planning efforts are in your area.
It is critically important for local OHV recreationists to attend these meetings and make site-specific comments on how the plans might impact continued use of motorized roads and trails in the project area.
Your comments and suggestions are reviewed by agency staff and can make a difference in what trails remain open. They also are an important part of the administrative record which then creates a nexus for BRC legal to enter the fight should legal action be necessary.

for everyone...gift membership solicitation...


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: December 9, 2014
Ring in the holidays with the gift of BRC membership
POCATELLO, ID (December 9, 2014) - Give the gift of recreational access this holiday season. Nothing is more important to that outdoor recreation enthusiast on your holiday gift list than a future of trails, access and having fun! You can make that happen with the gift of a BlueRibbon Coalition (BRC) membership - the champions of responsible recreation nationwide who help keep the outdoor fun alive!
For only $29, your gift of a BRC membership is an inexpensive gift to purchase. "As an outdoor enthusiast myself, I can't imagine getting anything more meaningful than the gift of access." said Del Albright, BRC Director of Operations. "If the person on your gift list doesn't already know about BRC, this is an awesome opportunity to introduce them to BRC, and if that person is already a BRC member, we will just add a year to their membership."
To purchase your BRC gift membership online, go to Give a Gift Membership | BlueRibbon Coalition.
What are the benefits of a BRC membership? With a BRC membership there are two types of benefits: tangible and intangible. The tangible benefits include a membership card, a member handbook, a decal and newsletter/magazine.
Though they are harder to describe, the can't-pack-them-into-a-box intangible benefits are the most valuable.
The most important of these is a NATIONAL voice that speaks for YOU against further road, trail and area closures and other threats to recreation. This includes a Legal Action Team that has in the past -- and will in the future -- take the battle to the courts when necessary.
You also get ownership of BRC. With every membership comes voting rights. You become a part of BRC's decision making process and leadership choices. You also get direct access to our land use team when your access needs help. You are BRC. Your participation and support is our lifeblood.
Your support helps to make sure our website is available to everyone, member or not. Our website provides valuable knowledge. The website gives you not only up-to-date information on what is going on with access issues, but with our online Advocacy Tools and Email Alert System, it provides the information and tools to make a difference.
Knowledge is power; our website and mailings give you the opportunity, information and skills to influence the decisions that are made regarding your access. We can't put that in a box and mail it to you.
Just think, you can give all this to someone for just $29.

for everyone...
Greetings BRC Action Alert Subscribers,
BRC has received questions and feedback concerning the pending National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA) for fiscal year 2015. This bill recently passed the House of Representatives, and now faces a vote in the Senate. Appended to this bill is a massive package of other bills, including dozens of public lands bills.
On the plus side, this signals at least a momentary end to the Congressional gridlock that has prevented meaningful public lands legislation from moving for years. Many of these bills are positive for recreation and related interests, and have been formed in close consultation with BRC supporters or local partners. Others, however, were not created in this fashion or have elements that are negative for access interests. The collection of bills would create as much as 250,000 acres of new Wilderness, create or expand 15 national park units or parks, and other similar actions such as designation of new wild and scenic river segments.
The House passed the NDAA in a 300-119 vote on December 4, 2014. The bill is facing procedural wrangles in the Senate, but could be voted on in the next several days. The NDAA has always been renewed on time, i.e. before the December recess, with Congress passing it for 52 consecutive years.
As always we urge BRC members, supporters and followers to study the 2015 Defense bill and determine how this bill affects you and whether you wish to take a position on this omnibus lands package. If so, you must act quickly to advise your senators of your position. You can find your Senator's Contact Information by going to www.sharetrails.org/issues/rapid-response-center and putting in your zip code.
Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.

Yellowstone Opened to Limited Snowmobile Access With Non-commercially Guided Access
Dear Action Alert Subscribers,
On December 15, 2014 the gates opened to another season of snowmobile access to Yellowstone National Park. However, recent warm weather and limited snowfall resulted in very little snowpack on many of the park's interior roads. Until appreciable snowfall is received and conditions on the park's packed, groomed roads improves, snowmobile access to the Park will be limited (see Park Service News release).
Remember during the 2014/2015 Winter Season, the Park will operate under the newly approved Winter Use Plan. This plan uses the concept of "transportation events" to manage winter access by snowmobile and snowcoaches. The following will take place: up to 110 "transportation events" daily, initially defined as one snowcoach or a group of up to 10 snowmobiles, averaging seven snowmobiles per group per season. Up to 50 transportation events may be groups of snowmobiles. The balance of 60 events would be snowcoaches.

Management by transportation events is an impact-centric approach designed to minimize the impact of oversnow vehicles (OSVs) on air quality, soundscapes, and wildlife rather than focusing solely on the number of vehicles allowed in the Park. Under this approach, as many as 500 snowmobiles could be allowed in the Park each day this winter.
In addition, another important part of the Final Regulation is that four transportation events per day (one per gate) would be reserved for non-commercially guided snowmobile access. Please note: A lottery was held in early October based on requests' entered into the Recreation.gov website during September. This lottery determined initial non-commercially guided access to the Park this winter. Please remember that any dates not allocated by the lottery for non-commercially guided groups were made available in November. Please check the Recreation.gov website for available dates.
For additional information on Yellowstone and winter access, please visit the BlueRibbon dedicated website of www.saveyellowstonepark.com

IMPORTANT NOTICE!
FROM COLORADO OFF-HIGHWAY COALITION
The Dolores Ranger District of the San Juan National Forest Seeks Input on a Proposed Travel Plan that Reduces Motorized Access


While there are routes being opened, these are insufficient to offset losses. Our specific concerns on this plan are: 1. Loss of motorized access to the Winter trail is allegedly based on user conflicts with non-motorized community. We do not believe this is proper as there is a long history of motorized usage on the route and there is a small and vocal opposition to the motorized access to the area. 2. Seasonal closures of routes for wildlife issues should only be in areas where there is winter range for deer and elk. Closure of the entire district will not benefit wildlife as most of the district is not winter range. 3. Loss of motorized access to the Ryman Creek Trail is significant- while we understand maintenance issues in the area, options to maintain motorized access should be explored. 4. We need to vigorously support proposed new motorized trails in the plan to avoid possible loss of these routes.
More information on this project is available here
Public meeting on Proposal:
Thursday , January 15, 2015 from 4-7 pm @ Dolores Community Center​

[h=1]Travel Management Proposal in Colorado’s San Juan National Forest Affects OHV Access[/h]
The San Juan National Forest has issued a Proposed Action for the Rico-West Delores road and trail system in southwest Colorado. The Rico-West Delores area includes Forest lands on either side of Highway 145 from north of Dolores, Colorado to Lizardhead pass and includes Lone Cone, Fish Creek, Dunton Road, Bear Creek, Ryman Creek, and Lizardhead areas in Delores and Montezuma Counties. This Proposed Action is a starting point for the National Environmental Policy Act (NEPA) process, and the Forest is seeking public comment on this proposal.

This planning area originally had a final travel management decision in 2009. The decision was appealed from both the motorized and non-motorized sides and the original decision was thrown out. In 2011, environmentalists sued the Forest Service to close 14 of the key trails in the area to motorized use. However, the federal judge ruled against the environmentalists in 2013. Thus, the San Juan National Forest has published this Proposed Action as the first step to establishing a new travel management plan for the area. According to the New Mexico OHV Alliance, while the new plan contains improvements over the original 2009 plan, the current proposal still severely impacts the current access enjoyed by OHV enthusiasts, including long seasonal closures limiting use to 9 weeks each summer (July 1 to September 8th). The proposal, while adding some new trails and connectors, would also close some prime trails with a long history of motorcycle enjoyment.

Comments & Public Meeting
Comments on the Proposed Action will be accepted until January 30, 2015. It is important that OHV enthusiasts get involved in the designation process by contacting Forest staff. Send commentsonline; by email: [email protected]; or by mail: Derek Padilla, District Ranger, Dolores Ranger District, 29211 Highway 184, Dolores, CO 81323.

A public meeting will be held on January 15, 2015 from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Dolores Community Center located at 400 Riverside Avenue, Dolores, CO 81323.​

CALIFORNIA - BLM Seeks Public Comment on Proposed Action for Rice Canyon OHV Open Area
Dear BRC Action Alert Subscriber,
The Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Eagle Lake Field Office (ELFO) is preparing an Environmental Assessment (EA) that will analyze the impacts of development and maintenance within the existing Rice Canyon 105 acre open area managed primarily for off-highway vehicle (OHV) use. The project area is within the Antelope/Shaffer/Bald Mountain Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA) which was designated in the 2008 BLM ELFO Resource Management Plan (RMP).
The Rice Canyon OHV open area is located NE of Susanville, California, off of Rice Canyon Road within Township 30 North, Range 13 East. The purpose of the proposed action is to protect OHV users from unregulated target shooting, create loop trail opportunities and encourage users to stay in designated areas.
The proposed action would take place within the Rice Canyon open OHV area and would include the following components shown on Map 2:
1) Establish the location of the existing 105 acre OHV open area boundary.
2) Construct 3 miles of new OHV trails.
3) Develop 1 acre of new OHV staging areas and install facilities such as picnic tables, a vault toilet and small shade structures.
4) Maintain and develop the existing 1.20 acre gravel pit currently utilized for parking and unregulated target shooting and install facilities.
5) Install entrance and boundary signs and markers.
6) Perform regular parking and trail maintenance with heavy equipment.
7) Restore and fence 0.25 miles of routes outside of the designated OHV open area.
The identified new and existing routes and parking areas may be utilized for casual and Special Recreation permitted events. Initial implementation would begin in fall 2015 as funding becomes available.
All comments regarding the proposed action are welcome and will used along with those received from other interested parties to determine the significant issues to be analyzed in the EA. Your comments must be received by Monday January 5, 2015 to ensure consideration.
Please send comments to: Attention: Marisa Williams, Outdoor Recreation Planner, BLM Eagle Lake Field Office, 2950 Riverside Drive, Susanville, CA 96130. Thank you for participating in this environmental analysis process. Please contact Marisa Williams, Outdoor Recreation Planner, with additional questions or concerns at: (530) 252-5303 or [email protected].
Thanks in advance and, as always, if you have any questions or concerns, please contact BRC.
