View Full Version : 2005 Fall Cleanup Outing!!
08-12-2005, 01:52 PM
I'm thinking of Saturday November 5th, 2005 for this years fall festival / cleanup... How's that sound to all of you?!?
08-12-2005, 01:57 PM
Steve - sounds like a good day. River traffic should have slowed some by then and it should still be reasonable weather wise. I would like to help - finally would be a date I could make. I don't have a boat but I would be a willing worker if I could catch a ride with someone. - Sam

Steve count me in as usual and I will be happy to do what ever is asked...Carl will be there too... as will Janice to help do whatever
08-12-2005, 03:29 PM
You know this but......I am in to Steve-O! Heather and I will be there, plus I will try and round up some of the boys to help out. I can not wait to clean up the crick, target some steelies and celebrate afterwards.

I'd like to help out with the clean up this year. I have a 14 drift boat and can take up to three people. I'll be bringing a fishing buddy as well. I like the sound of steelhead fishing afterwards. I really need some schooling.
08-16-2005, 08:40 PM
or should I say girl. I'll be there. Can't miss any. Dave
08-18-2005, 07:20 AM
Steve you can count on me. I'll got a boat, with room for two.
08-18-2005, 05:59 PM
Sign me up. I will bring my boat, 15' Clackacraft. Thanks for organizing and hosting this event.

While I have no boat to bring, I am glad to help. While I have helped clean up other rivers, I have not had a chance to help on the PM. Should I call the shop for details?
08-22-2005, 08:31 AM
Nope! I'll post al the details here as soon as we figure out about how many we think will show etc...
Probably be sometime lat in September or early in October, but basicaly plan on being at BBT that morning around 7:30 am for a 8:00 am start!
I'd like to help out, no boat so hopefully I can tag along with someone

I can make it on Saturday. I will try to drive up on Friday night and fish the Pm in the Pm so I don't have to drive up so early in the AM Saturday. This will be my first time working with an organized effort to clean up the river and it sounds like a good way to meet great people.
If someone needs a ride up North please reply to email@example.com
Looking forward to helping out
09-11-2005, 10:31 AM
It looks like I should be able to make this cleanup outing, and I will bring my boat along too. I will see you then if not sooner on the river!
09-15-2005, 09:55 PM
I'll be there. I finally got a chance to make it up last year and im gonna plan on it this year again. Last year me and a buddy hauled a pretty good sized trash bag out just fishing in the green cottage area. Looking forward to this years event, ill try to round up a couple others.
09-17-2005, 08:45 PM
At this piont I should be able to make it to this one also. Did the spring one for the first time and had a blast meeting new people and doing something good for the river instead of just using it. Will have one or two openings in my boat.
09-26-2005, 09:28 PM
Carrie and I will be there as usual with boat and room for at least 1. Wouldn't dare miss it! Let us know if you need help with anything.
Greg and Carrie D <"><
Count me in Steve. Not sure yet, but I may have a couple open seats.
09-27-2005, 05:58 PM
It is a pleasure to see what great care and effort you all go to to preserve your fine fishery. I live in the Rocky Mountains and I am amazed at those that leave trash on the banks and trails. These RM destinations don't get hammered by the traffic y'all see in the fall, but there's always a few folks inconsiderate enough to trash a beautiful place.
I am coming up with a group in a couple of weeks and can't wait to be on the PM again.

Keep up the great work, and thanks to BBT for a great web site and forum.

I have been fishing the PM heavily for close to a year now (Moved to the area a year ago) and have yet to go on a clean up trip and don't really know many of the "regulars" yet and would like to do both. I don't have a boat, but would be glad to hop in with anybody who has room, or if there is no room, I don't mind just walking the banks with garbage bags. My mom's 50th birthday is the 7th, so I don't know what my family might be doing for that, but I am trying to convince them to hold off until the 6th (since the 7th is a Monday). If I can do that, count me in for sure! Looking forward to it.
10-11-2005, 09:07 AM
count me and steeliedan in, we have a 16' drifter that dan can row
10-11-2005, 11:02 AM
Count me in I have a drift boat and might have a open seat
10-13-2005, 11:36 AM
I had mentioned in an earlier post that I was interested, but might have had a family thing going, but I convinced them to move it up a day do I have the 5th free, so count me in for sure. Don't have a boat, but will gladly hop in with someone, or don't mind walking the banks if need be. See you all Nov. 5th.
P.S. Do I need to even bother bringing my fishing stuff, or is this strictly clean-up only?
10-13-2005, 01:34 PM
I would like to vounteer also. I do not know anyone so I will not be one of the regulars but I do fish the PM regularly and feel I should do my part. I do not have a boat so if there are any open seats please let me know. My outings usually include my Yellow Lab, is this a no no?
10-13-2005, 04:59 PM
More than likely I will be there. :)

10-23-2005, 03:55 PM

10-25-2005, 06:13 AM
Just wanted to confirm that I will be up for the cleanup. Could use a boat ride. Still doesn't look like Casey is going to make it.

Dear Mr. Steve Fraley & The BBT Family,
You'll be glad to know that the Western Michigan Fishing Club will be participating in the '05 fall river clean up. We have 13 members planning to attend and I will confirm that number for you on Friday 10/28. You can also budget an additional $30 contribution from our club. Contact me if you need additional information and thanks for organizing this event.

Count two more in Steve, myself and a buddy.
10-27-2005, 11:27 AM
Count me in...I'm planning on it. Fixin's is ready to float and the rest of the fun is on the horizon.
10-28-2005, 10:14 AM
The outing is just around the corner next weekend on the 5th and it looks like it should be a fairly good showing. We were right at about 30 people showing up, (If I read all of these post correctly! :) )but with the addition of some 13 members of the Western Michigan University Fly Fishing Club that brings us to a grand total of 43 participants signed up at the moment.
The Schedule is this: Ive mentioned being at the shop several times at around 7:30 am for an 8:00 am start, but thats really just because Id like to have a little time to get the various floats sorted out with those of you brining boats before trying to fill space in said boats, the traditional group photo and then departure. (While there is never any sort of guarantee, thus far weve always found room in boats for all.) That being said, I ask that those of you having a boat with or without room show up at least a little before 8:00 am to get that sorted out, the rest can show at 8:00 if theyd like a ride and want to be a part of the group photo.
One person did mention that it might be a little early if its cold out, but on that note theres nothing that says once youve gotten your river assignment you cant go to breakfast first or whatever else and hit the river a little later. (I know that in the past the problem has actually been that many want to get going even earlier!;^) Theres also no hard and fast rule that you even have to show up at the shop at all... If you cant get here until a little later you just miss the group photo, but you can stop in and see whats covered or even just hit the river on your own without stopping in and well see you in the evening. (Hopefully!)
Im not going to set dinner in stone yet as I still want to give a few more people the opportunity to sign up if they like, but Im actually leaning towards just having this one catered and do some ribs, corn on the cob and side dish kind of thing. Either way well be sure to have enough eats and a few pops and waters floating around. Itll be BYOB as usual and you might want to bring a folding chair for the diner table and or around the bon fire later. I should be all set for company and the kick off of the appreciation party around 6:00 pm at my house on the south side of the shop that evening and well try and serve up dinner sometime around 7:30 or 8:00.
Thats all I can think of right now, but Ill re-post this info and anything else I think of sometime next week. Ive got a trip this afternoon and then Herb, John and I are all out on trips tomorrow so Im hopeful that well have some good stuff to post after the weekend! Till next time guys, tight lines!
10-29-2005, 11:53 AM
Finally, a cleanup I can make it to. Will be two of us and the Hyde.
11-03-2005, 07:31 AM
Is it too late to sign up? I can bring a boat if needed.
We'll bring a boat. How does it work for car spotting - do we need to arrange our own spotter?
11-03-2005, 03:57 PM
Bring the boats if you have 'em guys (I'd rather have too many than not enough.) and it's never too late to sign up or show up! See you on Saturday morning...
11-04-2005, 09:04 AM
Opps, forgot to mention that we'll be taking care of the car spots as usual...
See you in the morning!
11-04-2005, 07:38 PM
I got the day off and would love to help out.
