Start with Duncan Vitrarius (masterduncan at sbcglobal.net) for the "how
to go about it" parts -- he arranged the Ed Levin and Skyline Park
deals, and I think he's worked up a step-by-step for brokering similar
deals. And if you need help with the legwork, talk to Lady Zinaida
(deliriumskid at yahoo.com). I know she's put together some regular
archery practices at the Santa Cruz Archery Range -- is that the same
place as the De Laveaga?
