Lower Sycamore Cleanup April 21st 2018

Post by azrich » Mon Apr 02, 2018 11:04 am

This is a cleanup we should support. A shooting sports manufacturer called Overwatch Precision is hosting a cleanup at Lower Sycamore on Saturday, April 21st from 8:00-12:00. Natural Restorations is also helping to organize it and Footprints Matter who put on the Hewitt Station cleanup are advertising it to their distribution.

See their flyer attached for more information.

This is awesome! Great to see a shooting-related business acknowledge and push awareness of the problem. Maybe this will start a movement...

Well, crud, I can't make it to this. Bummer. It's the same day as the AZ State Parks all day grant review session that I'm required to attend.

Great opportunity to get the unorganized shooters to better support the area. I will be there for sure.

Sounds like TRAL made a good showing at the cleanup. Thanks very much to everyone who came out! Sorry I couldn't attend personally but our meeting with AZ State Parks to review grant applications was on the same day. We were successful in getting another round of funding from Parks.

Hopefully, more players in the gun industry will step up now and help out with cleaning up and even better with helping to reduce the problem.

TRAL along with a group from Shooters World and the Boys and Girls Club. Cleaned up a shooting area at the Lower Sycamore. The Payson TRAL trailer made it debut.
