Quote:Hmmmm... Didn't seem to stop the horse enthusiast group that was issued a special permit last year and occupied ALL the same traditional TMSP areas. I smell a rat.Regardless, if that is the "official" word on the subject, I do not see a return to Table in the near future. I would suggest a name change to lessen confusion on the matter. Something like Washington State Star Party (Formerly "Table Mountain"). Seems silly to call it anything "mountain" when in fact it's in a valley!
