Saw on FB its the 13th.
Sounds like they will concentrate on Buck.
Bring gloves, and vaporub to put under your nose.
At least that's what I use when digging up dead hookers

Hey, when are the Tee-shirts and dash plaques on sale? Plan on bringing this thing (no poo poo on the fingers). We'll be at the Spillway early Saturday morning, my Kid and I (2 rigs). Somebody post a schedule...

Nothing about shirts or plaques.
You can grab those picker uppers for a couple bucks at Harbor Freight.

Just a little update, I rolled in around 7:30 AM Sat morning, bought a t-shirt and a dash plaque, BS'ed with a few Pirates, aired down and headed off to Buck to start my clean up. The trail itself is clean but walk off into the bushes and there is the problem, the invasive white flowers. I walked the mid point of the lake on both sides of the trail and got approx. 1/3 of a garbage bag of trash and tissue. Sunday I stopped at Buck spillway and used 5 bottles of Bio-Clean and scrubbed oil spills until 2:30PM, then followed a trail of Coors Lite cans (7) back to Loon.
I hung out with Curly for a while at Buck on Sat. I think he used his trash bag as a wagbag, it stunk as he was holding it at arms length dry heaving picking up trash.
I don't know how many volunteers showed up, but the Pirates were there in force again this year. I think 23+(?) years now. Way to step up guys. See ya next year.

Thanks Tim, Was great seeing you and great report. Much the same as we posted on facebook. Good Info. Yes I have a light stomach. The white flower I picked up with a nice big turd connected to it just finished me off. Lmao
