Tireless James & Cleanup Event This Saturday!

Message from JRBF Chairman Ralph Smith:

This is the final reminder/pep talk regarding the James River Association Tireless James Cleanup and the JRBF Fall Meeting.
 
The tireless James Cleanup is this Saturday September 13th,  beginning at Wingina at 8:00AM and will go to Howardsville.  At this point I have no real idea what to expect, but realistically I would hope for 4-5 Batteaux and a group of canoeists.  I’d really like to see us make a significant difference in the James by getting these tires out and as the saying goes – many hands make light work!!!!  So please join in this worthwhile event if there is any way possible.
 
The JRBF Fall Meeting will be held in Howardsville at 5:00 PM and will include a pot luck dinner.  I encourage everyone to come to the meeting regardless of if you’re participating in the cleanup.  It’s a social event but also important that we discuss the upcoming 30th Annual JRBF in 2015. 
 
Remember that if you want to camp in Howardsville, we are welcome to do that.  Also some of us are heading from Howardsville to Scottsville on Sunday so consider bringing a boat and enjoying what is the favorite stretch of the river for many of us.
 
As always Mother Nature has a way of throwing a curve ball to any plans for outside activities.  This may be the case this weekend and it is predicted to be cooler and potentially rain – the up side to this is we won’t have to worry about heat stroke!!!!!
 
See you Sat. hopefully.
 
Ralph
