I have!

Seems lot's of people have good intent but when the time comes they don't show up. I see it as an opportunity to meet people, do some shooting, find new public places to shoot and do some good for our sport.

Disorganized yes ! I always haul out much more shooting trash than I generate. The GF is very good about pitching in and filling multiple bags with trash. Shotgun hulls really bug her and gets them all. :) We always leave the shooting area cleaner than we found it. ;)

Good for you. Give yourself a yes vote.

Funny you say that. The people who we showed up to help said my wife (actually GF) out cleaned everyone. Although I will never admit to that. :D

You really think anyone will admit to the last 3 poll options? :)

I didn't organize it - I did just did it, over a week. It was our BLM free range. There was so much stuff I couldn't pack most of it out (no pickup trk). I called BLM got the guy who tries to take care of the area; he thanked me, said he'd pick it up just leave it in the piles. Worked out well.
