It's park of Coke's “America Is Your Park” campaign to urge Americans to be active outdoors and to cast a vote for their favorite park to win the grant made possible by the company's Live Positively initiative.
But the odds are not good. Some pipsqueak state park in Georgia is already second in the tally. Little Ocmulgee State Park. It has already gotten almost 65,000 votes. The current leader, Great Smokey Mountains National Park has 74,000.
The VINP has …. 53.
So you know what you have to do by August 31. Vote!
The grant would be used for activity equipment such as bikes and kayaks, or for the restoration and construction of activity areas, presumably including hiking trails.
Vote, now!, at livepositively.com.
The Inquiring Iguana, a nefarious creature with experience in Chicago politics, has determined it's possible to vote more often than once, even encouraged.
"Vote as many times as you like before the voting closes 8/31," a message on the site says after you cast a click. The Iguana's votes for the Park were its 36th, 37th, and 38th.
If some dumb Georgia park no one's ever heard of can have 28K votes in the first 24 hours the poll was open, that's a lot of Georgia Peaches squeezing their mice and casting ballots. St. John, it's up to you.
