WLSC Lake Cleanup Tommorrow A.M.

Hi Folks,

If you are like me, you are wondering if the Watauga Lake Clean-up people were out of their minds when they picked tomorrow as the day for this event!  All weather forecasts call for record heat!  But, for those of you who don’t mind being uncomfortable for a couple of hours for a good cause, I encourage you to come out in the morning and help!

Here’s the scoop:

1.  We will be using two pontoon boats provided by Lakeshore Marina

2.  Please arrive by 8:30 a.m. at Lakeshore Marina where we will get aboard and motor down to Fish Springs Marina for registration.  If for some reason you are running late, you can meet us at Fish Springs Marina.  Hopefully we will be there and registered and ready to go with our gloves and trash bags by 9:15 a.m.

****If you would like to start earlier, go directly to Fish Springs Marina and register, (starting at 8:00 a.m.)then all meet at the Marina at 8:30.  Those who have registered early can take one of the boats and get started.*****

3.  PLEASE BRING YOUR OWN LIFE JACKET AND LOTS OF SUNSCREEN!  Bring anything else you think might be helpful in collecting trash…fish nets, trash grabbers, etc.

4.  I will bring a cooler full of ice and bottled water and some bug repellant

5.  Although not required, I suggest you wear lightweight, longsleeve shirt and pants for going into the woods (we will probably be going ashore to clean around a cove or two) and sturdy shoes that you don’t mind getting wet.

We’ll head back to turn in our trash by noon or when everyone has had enough!  There’ll be plenty of time to get back to the bathhouse and shower and return to Fish Springs for the afternoon party…food, music and prizes!

Hope to see you all in the morning!   Gayle

Here are some pics from last year’s cleanup when we cleaned the cove directly across from Lakeshore and gathered approximately 30 huge bags of trash! (Yes, that’s “Lil’ Toot” giving us a tow back to the marina!).
