Salmon Arm CITO Event: Come help us clean up Fly Hills!

I am helping Stampcoin arrange a CITO event here in Salmon Arm. As pretty much anyone who has done my cache "The Fly Hills are Alive" knows, the entire area is littered with trash and is desperately in need of a cleanup... so naturally we thought "CITO!"

Here's the details:

More info: Salmon Arm CITO - Fly Hills FSR

When: September 19th, 2009 at 11:30am sharp

(incidentally, this is also the International Talk Like a Pirate Day so if you show up and discover a bunch of there's a lot of folks wandering picking up trash and saying things like "Avast! Curse the hides of the filthy dogs who dumped their trash on them thar hills.. Yarr!!" don't be scared away.. it's all glorious fun)

Where: N 50° 40.715 W 119° 22.587

Conditions: Rain or shine

What we are providing: Garbage bags, hand sanitizer, food, drinks, lots of prizes. We also have trash waivers from the city to allow us to dump the garbage we collect at no charge. Please talk to Stampcoin or myself if you have a vehicle capable of hauling trash and are willing to help out.

What you need to bring: Gloves! There's a lot of sharp stuff around, so be sure to bring a pair of really good leather gloves. Optional things to bring: trash stick, lawn chairs/table, FRS/GMRS radio

Things to note:

If you can contribute something to eat, it would be most welcome.

If you have extras of anything (gloves, hand sanitizer, garbage bags, etc) it doesn't hurt to bring them

If you want to donate a prize to the event, contact Stampcoin

If you are bringing geocoins or travel bugs to the event, please drop them in the cache (with an associated note of course) and please touch bases with me so we can coordinate the trackables .. we want to make sure everyone who wants to discover the trackables gets the opportunity to view them all.

If you have a FRS/GMRS compatible walkie-talkie, bring it along. We will be operating on 462.5875 Mhz - Channel 2. If you are unsure, consult your manual as channel assignments sometimes vary among manufacturers. We are not using CTCSS/DCS (if you have the option, set it to "0" or "off")
