Little Richie gets his response

The Central Park response to this letter:

Dear Mr. Berger:

You are quite right about the information on the Great Lawn page on our website. I will remove the misleading sentence at the end of the first paragraph. We also have a soccer page: http://www.centralparknyc.org/activities/sports/soccer
which is perhaps more accurate and informative.

The only organized game we allow on the Great Lawn is softball, but we don't allow goals. If you want to play soccer near the Great Lawn, you can set up goals in one of the woodchipped areas around the Arthur Ross Pinetum (northwest of the Lawn). There are, of course, many woodchipped areas throughout Central Park.

Gee, we can soccer play in the "woodchipped areas"? How nice. At least I did make these people actually change their web site. However, the question now becomes: How do I (we?) proceed? Do I really push this thing and try to start a petition to take back the park? Maybe get written up in the New York Post...It's a possibility that I will look into. Is anyone else with me?
