Also we are in need of a <font color=yellow>projector </font color=yellow>to play a couple movies during dinner - if anyone out there has one they can lend or bring to the event, we would be more than appreciative.

Also United Prerunners is making a special offer to its members - any member that comes to the clean up gets two passes for events in the 2003 season.

If you can't make the clean up, but would like a raffle ticket or make a donation - our treasurer Sheryl Cannon is making an offer you simply can't refuse - feel free to send checks to HER office and we'll make sure that your name gets put in the hat for the drawing!!

"Cash should not be mailed, but is gladly accepted. You can bring it to my office in Covina. You can make donations at the Clean-Up, but it helps us to have the funds prior to the event so we can pay our vendors for the services and products they are providing the organization.

Donations are accepted all year long so feel free to give to the cause, we all want our deserts open for our use and use by future generations. To those who have already donated, THANK YOU, without you our mission could not be accomplished.

PS If you want to donate but just don't have the cash right now, please call my office (626-653-2023) and perhaps we can work out payment by credit card, running the charges through my company on behalf of CORDR. Thank you. "

And a repost from Tim Lindsay ~

Well, it's clean-up time again, and we need some help on a few things. First thing is the BLM is asking us to go to some remote areas. The company that donates the dumpsters can only bring them to the s/f area at Outlet Center Drive. We are hoping to help the BLM out by having some groups head out to a few remote areas and do some clean-up out there and bring it back to the dumpsters or the dump directly. One area I know could use some of our loving is Hodge Road. The BLM is going to give us some other locations. So if you have a group of trucks, or don't mind joining in a group to hit these areas, please let us know.

Another problem is more and more people are picking up nails in their tires in the s/f area. I was thinking if there is anybody out there, like a electric motor rebuilding place, that can provide us with some magnets so we can maybe hit some of the camp fire rings. I know that they can be pretty heavy, so if anybody has any ideas or suggestions, or can provide us with some magnets, please let me know.

I would like to add that the Stoddard Valley area looks really good. Not only is this a compliment to all the volunteers from past OCD and Bill Markel clean-ups, but to the users who are taking care of our lands between these events. The BLM knows that we care, and that there is a tremendous difference since these clean-ups have started. Keep up the good work, and hope you all can attend or donate to OCD III.

Hope to see everyone out there!
