I wanted to start planning a date for getting up to Argentine for the 1st cleanup run.
My schedule is dictating that June 23 is going to be the best date to do this cleanup.
I want to encourage everybody to consider coming on this run - it's fun, relaxing, family friendly, beautiful scenery, interesting history, and the club provides lunch!
Also, to encourage newer club members to consider joining Rising Sun's efforts in Land Use activities, I want to propose something new: for anybody that has never been on a cleanup run in the past, I will be raffling off a Rising Sun logo'd Trasharoo bag at the beginning of the trail run, which can be put to use right away!
So come out, have a good time, give back to the sport we all enjoy so much, and win some schwag while you're at it!
If anybody is interested in leading any portion of this trip, we can maybe plan on splitting into two or more groups to cover more ground! Let me know if you're interested!
And if anybody is interested in joining the Land Use team, just let me know!
We have two Adopt-a-Roads: Leavenworth/Argentine and Jenny Creek!
Time: 9:00 AM
Where: Argentine Pass pulloff. If you don't know how to get there meet me at the visitor center in Georgetown no later than 8:30 (let me know if I should be expecting you, if you need my number it's in the roster or you can PM me).
When: Sunday June 23
Radio: CB Channel 4, 2m 146.460

For those that have never been, 248.1B has a decent creek crossing that can get a little deep in the spring. 248.1B is also a little on the narrow side for those of you worried about pinstriping. Nothing too major though, a truck on stock tires should be fine with some careful driving.
Keep checking this post for updates, see you there!
