Colorado River Summer Clean-Up
Join other WSA members and a whole load of other local boaters in cleaning the tires, soda bottles. styrofoam peanuts, discarded bikes, sleeping bags, grocery sacks and you can never guess what all else that has accumulated since last year's clean-up.
This is a great way to give a little community service while enjoying a day on the river with friends old and new. Plus, getting a picnic lunch when it's all over
There are various sections you can sign-up, or just show up, to clean.
Sign-ups are taking place at Whitewater West (our local boating shop for those who have not been there.)
They supply the bags and gloves. It is suggested you may want to bring:
- tarp to cover your boat from mud and nasty objects
- wire cutters
- a rake or other long grabber
- sun protection - hat/shirt/ sunscreen
- drinking water
HOW TO SIGN UP
- Stop by or Phone Whitewater West [masked]
- or phone Bob Richardson and leave message [masked]
- or email Bob at [masked]
- or just show up ready to work with your own boat. Registration helps us plan food, state park passes, T-shirts, etc. so registration is best.
In your RSVP please state what part of the river is your preference and what kind of boat you will be using. If you have a raft and have room for a passenger or 3 or 3, please state that too.
Once we start to see who from WSA signs up and where they prefer maybe we can work out a plan to help make our presence known.
If members are interested, for a nominal fee I bet, we could probably get shirts early for those WSA members who register and get them over-printed with the WSA name and maybe we could even design a WSA river logo. Please state in your RSVP if you are interested in this idea.
If anyone has connections with a screen printing operation please look into this and let Doug know what you find.
It is suggested, no dogs please today since they just complicate loading and maneuvering boats with all the junk involved.
