    Event started on Facebook "Trash No Land". Please share!!! This event also links back to this NWFA event.

    https://www.facebook.com/events/153019611752034/

    I find it's better to share the 1 event rather than start several other events on FB. I can't get around to all those other pages to make additions or changes. Thank you.

    As I said before I can commit at least 20 bodies. I'll get 100% confirmation this week.

    Other than that I'll be there early and bring a pop up canopy BBQ and stovetop. As well as some goodies for the after party.

    You have my "Will be there" vote and Wifey will get hers in too.

    The site shown on the map doesn't appear to be very large? Is that just a mustering area?

    We are expanding the April 2 cleanup since we are expecting to have quite a few volunteers (30-40?) and some good person has been cleaning up some of the Lousignont. Reno911 and norm0931 went out to Lousignont on Thursday and said that it was getting cleaned up by someone.

    Wolf creek, where we went last year, is dirtier than ever though. Its also able to handle many more cars and people

    So we will split the group a d try to do both areas since they are very close together by driving.

    We will meet at N fork Wolf Creek road, same location as last year.

    https://goo.gl/maps/a1ggSRfp1i32
    ndmD3ZI.jpg

    Then we will send some of the group to Lousignont for a quick cleanup and then back for lunch and shooting

    There's a fourth spot you don't have circled that is right at the bend, where that little spur goes out to the landing. Also, I'm guessing you've been out and checked the place out? #2 spot I've not seen as the road is so deeply rutted, and I didn't walk over the rise and look when we were out there a few weeks ago.

    Cook? Do we have a cook out there? We need a BBQ Master. A Chuckwagon Cookie. A Concinero. Someone to flip those burgers just right. You won't have a chance to help with the clean up but you'll be helping in an other BIG way!

    We are also looking for some kitchen help. Set up and monitor the food prep line. Will be self serve but we need someone to set up the table and prep the line.

    Any takers?

    Yes, Timber, we need both. So pick either one and bring some! Let us know if it will be dogs or burgers and how many.

    We also have a contribution of dogs and buns from mgleason00.
    The camp stove will be perfect for cooking the coffee.

    Since we are expecting well over 30 people, we'll need plenty of dogs, burgers, buns and condiments. This is a great start!

    Thank you!
