this is a post i have been debating on writing for a little while now and i need some input. how many of you guys are sick to death of going to your local fishing spots and seeing them overrun with trash? i can think of nothing more that absolutley infuriates me than this! the last time i was over at cannelton i was just looking around at the landscape and i just wanted to scream! i don't know how many of you guys remember the litter commercials that used to come on in the late 70's that had the crying indian on them but thats how i felt! why,why,why?!?!?!? i always try and take a couple walmart bags with me (most of them time i can just find some discarded ones lying around) and fill them up with trash from my immediate fishing area and if i camp i bring several large trash bags and sweep a larger area but this isnt really putting a dent in the problem so, i am proposing to take this clean up effort to the next level and i need some help. i believe education is key to defeating this problem and community involvement. some people litter cause they just don't realize what harm it does to the environment. what i am proposing is a cleanup day sponsored by the BOC. i don't know if the BOC has done this kind of thing before but it would be awesome. we could start out small patroling a couple of places and expand year to year. the campaign i would like to see get started would be something like" cleaning up the ohio". we could start by going to different places along the ohio river. i would like to see us get some t-shirts printed up with the BOC logo on it and maybe "trash patrol" or something like that on the back. we could also have some business cards or flyers printed up with facts about littering on them. and we would need to talk to as many people as possible. we are a very large organization and we should take the lead for others will follow. but anyway, i just wanted to see if i could get some interest in this and maybe get the ball rolling. if you are interested please post here.thanks for your time. p.s. this could also be a good time for fellowship with other brothers and sisters. we could have a picnic or something. just a thought.
