Friends of Last Chance Canyon Message

Sent December 27th 2014

__ Good News folks. We had a Friends of Last Chance Canyon board meeting where new, enthusiastic members were nominated for taking on the soon-to-be-vacant board posts, which I was very relieved to see. I had been a bit presumptive in my announcement here of the organization's dissolution, I am happy to state. This can happen in periods of little or no communication, so everyone take heed and don't put your faith in Facebook for judging the important things, like how much people really care for something. Please s...

__ Greetings everyone, Merry Christmas and a joyous New Years! With this time of reflection and promise of New Year, it is also a time for reflection, and it seems pretty obvious to me that the Friends of Last Chance Canyon organization has run its course and should be dissolved. Though we’ve had achievements, the overall goal of the organization has proved to be beyond our grasp. From the FLCC Bylaws our purpose was for: 1) Preservation of historical and cultural sites within the general vicinity of the El Paso Moun...

__ Hi folks, It’s been quite a while since I've sent out a message on how things are going with our group and what we do. Today's events gave me a wake up call of sorts, and I’d like to share a few things with you. First: Bickel Camp is doing really good in my opinion. We've done a lot in the last year or so to help the visitors have a more pleasant and educational experience. The camp still exhibits an authentic depression era mining camp example with the history of Walt Bickel that's readily accessible by the publi...

Friends of Last Chance Canyon Urgent Message

Sent August 24th 2014

__ Greetings folks! we've weathered another Summer and are heading into the Fall, the camp is hanging in there and actually looking the best it has in years, but we have just had our first incursion with things at the camp missing. Several trailers were opened, things are missing (we're still assessing what might've been stolen). Bottom line: WE NEED HELP to watch over the camp. Rotating caretakers has really worked well in the last year or two. Having the camp be watched today during the weekdays, would really help. A...

Friends of Last Chance Canyon and Bickel Camp Update Message Hi Everyone! I hope you're enjoying the fine cool weather that's present these days in the high desert.

I'd like to invite everyone to a work and pot luck get together this coming November 9th and 10th at Bickel Camp. We are removing the last vestiges of the trash with a trailer provided by ...

__ Fellow guys and gals, desert people, Friends of Bickel Camp, and assorted denizens of the desert! We've collected some for the Chuck Goodenough BBQ memorial and propose we come up with a plan to relocate the caretaker trailers where we want ‘em, with the central area between the trailers then being used for a larger covered area, more picnic tables, and nearby BBQ. Let’s draw something up! We need a plan to estimate building supplies, so we can approach Home Depot and see what they’ll donate or assist us with as th...
