We still haven't heard any word about how the Federal government will rule regarding the appeal of the California Coastal Commission decision. Remember, the Secretary of Commerce must decide between Oct 24, 2008 and - Jan 7, 2009. Therefore a decision will be made before Obama takes office.
While we're waiting, we are far from idle… the Surfrider Foundation is continuing our public outreach. This weekend (Nov 7-9) we will be down at the Oxbow World Longboarding Tour at San Onofre State Beach educating the public about the proposal to build a toll road through this precious park. This surfing competition brings the world's 48 best longboarders together. Come check out the surfing and stop by our booth to say hi!
We will also continue the annual tradition with the South Orange County Chapter of Surfrider by hosting another holiday party to raise awareness and funds for the Trestles campaign (more details to come soon).
Finally, the Save Trestles campaign will receive a Recognition Award from Convicted Artists at their Extreme Sports & Artist Charity Event. Over the summer, the Trestles campaign also received a Special Recognition Award from Surf Industry Manufacturers Association for our work to stop the toll road. We are extremely honored to receive such accolades!
The Extreme Sports & Artist Charity Event will take place Dec 13 in Irvine; and will feature several high profile athletes, a silent auction, a skateboard competition, a comedy show, and the Master of ceremonies will be Brooke Jena Lewis, the talented comedian, who has shared the stage with countless acclaimed actors and comedians.

Thanks for your continuing support of the Trestles campaign. Your Pals at Surfrider,
