I was thinking about organizing another pit clean up at the 435th Ave pit in Darrington on August 20th.

The double pit isn't to bad of shape trash wise but could use a complete clean up.
With six to eight guys we could probably have both pits cleaned in about three hours.
If I can get atleast six commitments I will contact the DNR manager and get it set up to shut the pit down during this clean up.

I will sell some brass to cover the dumping fee and buy food and refreshments.

A big thank you to every one who helped out on the past pit clean ups. With out your generous help it would not be possible.
Pat & Mason

We’re gonna have to see how we feel once we get back from our four day camping trip to Riffe lake. Yeah, fishin is hard on us old folks. I am hoping we can make it again this year. Hopefully it won’t rain. Lol I’ll be in touch.

Don't count me in, but I could tie in a trip visiting a school buddy that's not too far away, dozen miles past Bechers old farm.
I'm marking it down, will see how work and fire deployment units are doing.

This will be a fun event, I will be posting more information as it develops.
I will be contacting the DNR District Manager tomorrow and get that part squared away.
Bill Cogly (Trash No lands) will not be able to attend this clean up event he has prior commitments.

Like last year I will be camping along the stillaquamish River on Friday night (8-19) prior to the Saturday clean up 8-20)
Any one interested in camping out or stopping up to socialize are welcome..


The spot we camp at is a very comfortable place right along the river a half a mile below the shooting pit.

Caveman if you could make it that would be great..I just put that grill I bought last year together a week ago and have a full tank of propane for it..
I'm thinking of organizing a pit clean up for the two pits we cleaned up last year on the Suiattle River Road in September.
I'll work on that after this one gets done.

The pit clean up is going together good.

Someone vandalized the gate by the electric sub station. So it has been open for about a month.

We will have a ten foot dump trailer to haul the trash.

I talked with the District Manager from the DNR. If the county fixes the gatthe DNR will put a combination lock on it for the clean up so it will be open on the 20th so cars can make it in.

The DNR will be closing the pit down on August 20th from 8am until noon.

I sold some brass and we have a donation to help coverthe dump fee.

All of the wood debris we will place in the center of the pit and burn it if there isn't a burn ban in effect.
The DNR manager said it doesn't loon like the burn ban will be in effect by the 20th.
I will contact the Darrington fire department and let them know we may be burning some trash and see if they want to be present.

We will have the ten foot dump trailer to haul the trash to the Arlington transfer station.

At the camp spot along the river there are two junk cars abandoned there.
I got a tandem axle car trailer lined up to Haut them to the scrap yard if I can locate some one with a large back hoe to load the both of them up. I will go through and get the legal paper work done to take them to the scrap yard.

I will be camping there on Friday night with my grandson if any one else want to camp there.

I am putting a list together of volunteers for the event and a list of donors and people who are buying brass for the dump fees.

I have the event posted to the Trash No Land's website, on the Events page: https://www.trashnoland.org/darrington-wa-pit-cleanup-aug-20th-2022/

It's also on the TNL FB page if anyone wants to share from there: [url]https://www.facebook.com/trashnoland/posts/pfbid0abjnV38cX7jdMJ5wmnxyvFm92tUgiX4Se3FRBphwgzWpkyyqKiAuPExsHho7E31Wl?__cft__[0]=AZUL4TITNlYx7op1iHItNrNKGwpT2dU_IaOhb_qKHuFVrc2c2j77sAxka5-0LccBHnzuXlxEPekb8piAmzctLW1P-VzZA6B9nBoEK0dwkDPGyRqt1vgYtWzckatI5LPjir_VR7MOHqabj52QV23ymYiOKQAg8j-MqWbu-0XkVNICdQ&__tn__=%2CO%2CP-R[/url]

From the FB page, so far we've had 16 shares. A few if those were; Twin City Sportsman's Club, Washington 2022 Legislative Action Group, Wa State Sportsman Unite for Change, Washington State Hunting, Washingtonians for Wildlife Conservation and a few individual shares. This is great exposure!!!

Although I can't be there, I'm going to reimburse Pat for trash disposal. (Well, not me, but the Trash No Land organization will.) If anyone wants to help further, perhaps he could use some cash for the food purchase!

Thanks for putting this together, Pat!

Bill
