On the morning of Friday, February 24th, National Park Service law enforcement rangers entered the base camp of a BFRO expedition near the Buffalo National River in Arkansas and issued a citation to organizer Matt Pruitt. Pruitt was cited for "conducting a business operation" in the park without a permit. He admitted on his blog on Sunday that he was wrong for assuming he had all the necessary information related to the usage rules and regulations of the park. "I was wrong, and I paid for that mistake," he wrote. When the story broke about Pruitt's citation, BFRO president, Matt Moneymaker responded and issued some statements regarding the February event. Although he cleared up some questions concerning the rules and regulations of national parks, there were still lingering questions about the accuracy of the original report by Chief Ranger, Karen L Bradford.
