Hey guys. This is the new signup thread for the (now) rescheduled South Denver Lake Cleanup. Pizza is on me, Tom will be bringing some supplies as well, and hopefully Chad will still be able to make it.
Had to reschedule due to scheduling conflicts with Denver Parks and Recreation, but they have agreed to lend full support for NEXT Sunday with garbage grabbers and trash bags. They have also agreed to a supplemental trash pick-up day.
So basically here's how it's going to work. At 10:00 AM, we will meet at 3033 W. Alameda (my place of business) in the parking lot. It is centralized to the lakes we will be hitting for cleanup. Depending on attendance, we may split the group into teams and hit up each of 3 lakes (reduced from 4 previously) separately. If there aren't enough participants to split into teams, we will travel to each lake as a group and collect garbage independently.
The Cleanup will go until 12-1 or so, then we will go to Huston Lake for pizza, snacks, award "ceremonies", and some fishing!
Prizes will be awarded in the following categories:
*Most Trash collected (by weight)
*Largest piece of garbage collected (like a car door off a 78 Gremlin)
*Strangest piece of garbage collected (like a bronze statue of Jimmy Carter)
All participants will receive a fly of their choosing, and the prizes given for the preceding categories will be fishing gear (new lures and other goodies)
Lakes to be Targeted:
1) Huston Lake Park
2) Vanderbilt Park
3) Garfield Lake
The picture here is of (4) lakes... the southwestern-most lake has been removed from the Cleanup efforts (Harvey Park)
Please post to this thread if you intend on attending... This will not be rescheduled again. This Cleanup will take place on November 24th, come rain, shine, snow, sleet, hellfire, Armageddon, or the "cows coming home".... Please sign up for a good cause, guys... You're guaranteed pizza and a free piece of fishing gear for your efforts.
I thank you, and I have spoken with Tina Meyers at Denver Parks and Recreation and she was very excited and grateful for the efforts of FXR on the behalf of these wonderful south Denver lakes.
