Folks, our local and national waterways, lakes and rivers, give us countless hours of recreation. We ALL enjoy time on the water catchin' these fightin' cats. I think it would be a good idea if the BOC would discuss an annual week of waterway cleanup. It would be hard to pinpoint a day, or weekend designated for such, as folks schedules conflict so much. If we announced a week of waterway cleanup, folks could pick any day during that week to get out and give back to nature, what some are trying hard to destroy. Instead of big fish pics for that day, we could all take pics of our loads of refuse gathered from the waterways. Each person should try to MAKE time to serve our waterways with giving instead of taking for at least one day each year. With our vast numbers, I think we could really make a positive impact on our waterways, and it would be GREAT public relations for our group. I know MOST of us here on the forum take all our own trash home with us, and many of us pick up whatever is handy to reach that isn't ours. That being said, I always see tires on rims, refrigerators, TVs, basketball and footballs, and countless plastic bottles floating, hung up in the trash piles of the waterways. I know many members already do clean up a lot of "extra" items, and I assume many clubs have days designated for cleanup. We have discussed it with our peedeecatmasters club. It would only cost each individual the fuel and time it takes to clean up one day out of that week, in their own local area. Whatcha think, Paul and others? BTW: It should be scheduled in either late fall or late winter, while the moccasins are in hibernating from the cool/cold, as they LOVE to lie in those debris piles.
