I voted for Ranger Fred...

We have friends that have reservations for CanOpener (as SOBers) and due to a job change may have to cancel. Should know by Dec 8th. I'll keep y'all posted and give you a heads up before they cancel, if they have to.

-Red, Ranger Fred fan...

This is from Fred's nomination page. Pretty much sums up who Fred is!


"Fred Provost is a dedicated Park Ranger; he has spent his entire career supporting a very high visitation, high demand park (over 200,000 visitors annually and the largest camping park in Florida). I have continually received letters of praise from the guest, groups and organizations on his performance. He is always willing to prepare himself to perform better, in the past two years he has completed many training programs including engine academy, volunteer program for the state wide wild land fire team and received his certification for interpretation. As the Park’s Services Specialist and Volunteer Coordinator, his job performance has been beyond outstanding. With a very complicated volunteer program rotating through over 60-80 campground host/maintenance volunteers, he has single handedly created a smooth system and fair rotation system providing improved morale and increased applications throughout the year. His planning has also led to less down time and improved productivity by over 30%, done so by communication, training and planning; lessening any gaps in volunteer positions being field and training time. He has also helped me in outreach and CSO (Parks non-profit organization) recruitment where our members have increased by 40% including new board members and officers. Fred has created a reputation of great customer service leading the way organizing two major events a year and setting up programs and activities with multiple groups, from local schools to airstream camping clubs. Operation of a Volunteer Program with over 200 volunteers, all while being a key team member to the top revenue generating park in the state of Florida, shows his dedication and expertise is top notch. He continues to manage a stewardship of the Parks Service that is second to none. He is always an over achiever and a reliable ranger that the park service should cherish as a valuable team member. He received employee of the month for district one this past year and continues to perform well above most. He has my highest recommendation for Park Ranger of the year."

As someone that has been somewhat involve with the logistics of all 9 Can Opener to date I can say, without reservation that Fred Provost has not only allowed the Can Opener to return each year but has gone out of his way to ensure each one is better than the last. I use the term allowed because many rangers and campgrounds discourage large groups. You should note that in his nomination letter Airstream is denoted by name.

While I don't generally support Chicago politics I have no reservation in asking everyone to Stuff the ballot box on this one. You can vote once a day from a given computer IP. With that in mind go visit a friends computer or contact anyone you know who may have attended in the past and may not be following this years tread. Steve, Chief and Dick head
