ROCK TRAIL CLEAN UP THIS THURSDAY EVENING!

Planned at the last meeting. I understand we had low attendance so please tell everyone in the club that you know about it.

Thursday Oct. 12th begining at 4pm, and lasting until dark. Come when you can. Bring gloves, kids, friends and water. It will be a great time and the area really needs our help. Maybe it is getting more dumping because the other areas are closed, but we need to keep it clean to keep it open!

Thank you in advance for your help and participation!

Yes, I just got the directions yesterday. Coincidently I was out in the area west of where the rock trail is last Sunday. There's more trash out that way as well. Nice to see that there are some people wanting to make a difference. I'll be there tonight about 6:45-ish with my two little helpers.

See ya!

I just got back. Had a good time. I was thinking how we could help to prevent so much mess from piling up and had an idea. Is there anyway that signs could be made and posted at major entrances to the staging area? I was thinking it could read something like this...

"Due to large amounts of litter this area is threatened by closure. Please do your part to keep it open by taking all trash out that you bring in including spent shells, cans, bottles etc. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated."

Then have BLM approve it and put that approval on the sign. What do you think?

The BLM gave us signs a couple years ago that said no dumping, they lasted about 3 months before they disappeared:darn:

Maybe if they said something like Adam said about closing the area it would do more good.

What do you want to bet they were shot up?:lame:

As far as your club and the BLM goes, who would need to be contacted to work this out?

It was a good time for those of you who weren't there. I don't care if I never see another shotgun shell in my entire life.

Although I do find myself wanting to shoot a propane tank, just to see what happens. (I'll pick up my spents though)

It was nice meeting some of you.

I took a picture from the top of the sand hill. I wish I would have had my camera when that jeep got stuck. Thats was fun.
