Howdy all,

On Tuesday, March 30th there will be a cleanup before the Canyon closes for the spring.  Whoever wants to participate will meet at ten-thirty am at Grotto Falls parking lot.

We'll break into teams, and leave to different climbing areas around the canyon and pick up whatever trash we can find. 

At Three-thirty we will reconnoiter at the Bingo Cave for a party and some mixed climbing fun!!

If you want to contribute with planning, garbage bags, ideas, (I was thinking a BBQ at Bingo), please PM me.
