    As stated before, I'll be there. I very rarely shoot on public land, since my family has private land that I normally use, but I still see a need to keep these places open and clean for everyone.:thumbup:

    Right on Dominic - thanks for organizing this. for the short time we were there I truly felt that we all made a huge difference.

    for everyone else that showed up - thanks. It's a hassle to get out there I know, but what we did will be noticed by alot of folks - and who knows. Maybe one of those folks might realize that a clean area is better than a transfer station to shoot in.

    you guys rock!

    I prefer a clean area too which is why I helped. It was really amazing how much trash a bunch of people can collect in a short amount of time. It was also nice to meet some new people.

    Y'all did a great job. Went up there today with some friends and was nice to see it clean (well...cleaner than I've ever seen it before). As I stopped to dump a few mags I couldnt believe how much brass was laying around. Spent a few minutes collecting some 5.56 brass laying around. Count me in for the next clean up!:thumbup:

    Sounds like an event that I need to attend too! I'll even try to bring my
    kids so they get an idea on the importance of cleaning up after one's self.

    When will the next one be?
