Perception Help

(1/3) > >>

Stone:
I'd like to bridge the perception gap that can exist between a group of moutain bikers and a group of off-roaders.  Our involvment in the Toys for Tots every year does a lot to build that bridge.

This year I thought we might go a bit farther.  I'd like to have a synopsis of what the club does to provide a positive environmental impact.  For instance the cleanup at Four Peaks this year, anyone who participated in the Table Mesa cleanup and any other activities.

I'll print it on an 8.5 x 11 sheet with pictures on the back.  There is a stuffing party this Sunday for the rider packets and if I can have them done, The Dirty Girls will stuff them in the rider packets.

I need some help...

Info from the most recent cleanups

Events the Xterra Club participates in  ie ASU, Triathalon

Pics from any cleanups.  Random ones (Coves last year who was that) and big organized ones.

Email me anything you can to stone@orbitelcom.com

Anything else I can use...

Thanks,

Marshall

We've done the 4 peaks cleanup 2 years in a row now, and we've also done 2 cleanups at Table Mesa.  The pics were posted on XOC, but I'm sure most of that stuff is missing now.

Personally, I volunteer with the OHV Ambassadors organization which helps educate the public on proper Off-roading principles, etiquette, rules, etc.  They are also involved in trail cleanups, trail maintenance, and trail patrols (helping people in need).

Additionally, I am a current member of Tread Lightly!, and I am sure that there are others from either AZXC, SWANKy, and ONAZ that are members of Tread Lightly! as well.

T-Ray:
Great idea Stone. I will call Tim Huber (organized the major 4-peaks clean ups) and get him involved too.

Between all of us, we oughta be able to put together a good collage of pictures and information. I like how you're thinking.

Whoever has pics on their computer or photbucket - get them to the email address provided above ASAP. Thanks.

Stone:
What would be cool was the numbers on the Four Peaks cleanup as far as how many tons of trash etc etc.

AZ-Ted:
From this year's 4 peaks cleanup, the numbers I had heard were 500+ people and 20+ tons of trash.

EDIT:  Tim Huber (SOAZ on Expedition Portal) is the guy that runs the 4 Peaks cleanup.  He would have detailed info / pictures.
