The Arizona Trail has again been selected to compete for the Redwood Creek Greater Outdoors Project grant. Yes, Arizona Trail supporters tried very hard last year but our project came in second. Happily, contest rules have changed, but it still comes down to the project with the most votes earns top honors and the $50K.

Do you know that:
As one of nine finalists in the 2010 Redwood Creek Greater Outdoors Project, the ATA is automatically awarded a grant of $10,000
The top vote-getting finalist will receive $50,000
This years voting is ONLINE only (i.e. no more texting)
The contest period is longer, April 1, 2010 to August 31, 2010. Voting can be done daily.

Your daily ONLINE vote will help to win $50,000 please vote every day.

And we at the ATA promise to only send out few and far-between emails to remind you to vote daily. Thats a promise!

How To Vote Every Day From April 1, 2010 through midnight on August 31, 2010, you can vote ONLINE every day at www.BlazeTheTrail.com/GreatOutdoors/ (http://www.blazethetrail.com/GreatOutdoors/) for the Arizona Trail project (and please ask your friends to vote, too).

Twitterers: A pop-up appears after you vote that will take you to Twitter if you click it. Be sure to change your favorite project to the Arizona Trail in your tweet!

The Project If the ATA wins the $50,000, the funds would help build an 11-mile reroute in the Sonoran Desert Black Hills passage plus help with needed trailheads and kiosks in Pima and Pinal Counties . Those Arizona Trail enhancements would be a tremendous amenity for hikers, equestrians, mountain bicyclists and all Arizona trail users.

Each and every vote for our Trail is appreciated. I apologize if you receive this initial plea more than once. But if you do, you know it is important to the Arizona Trail.

Thanks for that Garlic.
The AZT is a great trail.
You do have to join something to vote. (which is a bit of a pain but the AZT is worth it IMO)
