I should be able to make it. I haven't been to the glass factory since the last clean up but I'm sure there is plenty to clean.

Does anyone else prefer Saturday over Sunday?

Saturday is fine with me. I think we went with Sunday last time because the majority wanted it. Either day is good.

I will put the word out to the Santa Barbara Gun Club on Facebook once we decide on a date. Last time that got at least 2 people to show up. School will be starting up again so hopefully we can get a few more.

This is why im suggesting an Oct date. No mid terms and no holidays.


Students also generally need an excuse like this to bring up the topic of firearms since this town's UC culture is essentially anti-gun (at the college / new college student age level at least it is).

Perhaps we should consider tailoring one event a year (or semester?) specifically to getting college students involved?

Thats all you need generally for these events. Well maybe some gloves...

The last few cleanups we've had outstanding support from Marborg. They have donated dumpsters to us. Hopefully this can happen again.

I think we need to get more word out this time. Fliers need to go out to the local gun shops and definitely need to go out at the range itself as a fair warning. I think there are some fliers in one of the other threads for the Glass Factory. I will get some of those printed up and make sure they are posted at my local shop.

We just need a set date...

ckprax
09-08-2011, 8:58 AM
I think either the first or second weekend in October would be best since midterms usually fall right around Halloween. Get it early before students have much of a workload.

Can we post a flier in this thread? I will print some out and bring them to the local shops here in Goleta, SB.

I would totally join you guys, but sadly im not in the area after I graduated from UCSB last summer. Did participate in one cleanup while I was there. That place needs if often as it gets trashed quick by the idiots. Kudos to deadbolt for always getting things going with this. I always liked shooting tter and miss having a place to go without a bunch of "rules" other than the basic gun safety rules

Yep it was this Saturday. I was the inadvertent dick knocking down clays who made fun of the .410 shotgun. I was a "that guy" this weekend. My bad if you are who I think you might be Ventura.

I agree and my friend stated the same rule. In by 8 out by 11 to avoid the shenanigans.

I was there with the three other guys (two of them very noobish) and a bunch of commie guns and an AR - we were the ones plinking at that steel I-beam about 250 yards up the hill. We got there at 8 and bugged out by 11 just when the yayhoos with the rapid fire and propane were getting started.

Fun morning but I agree - the shmucks really come out of the woodwork at noon there.

just to be clear, if i recall correctly, laser range finder put the location where the metal tanks / plates are usually placed around 125yrcs. (it appears much further bc of elevation change)

Oh okay I think I remember you then.

I'm surprised nobody said anything to them for blowing up a refrigerator, it was bad enough when they were spraying everything full auto and drawing attention. Lemme guess... they left the fridge guts there on the range too. People are idiots.

Maybe a different spot? There's that ditch then another rise where the people put the plates and tanks out which looks 100ish yards - then further on up I'm talking about way at the top of the hill where there's hardly any backstop left where the deer usually run across. I want one of those laser rangefinders!

If the referigerator was shot up in the lower area sadly we generally don't make it that far down before our dumpster is full. There is plenty of trash on the upper area for us to contend with.

I have the Rangers onboard w/ a good chance of a Fire Crew to help. Marborg, as usual, will be there with as many dumpsters as we need and a portable potty.

I hope we have a good show of hands to help out for it is a short notice.

Also, there is a great ebb tide swelling in the direction of closing down the Glass Factory "Permanently" due to the yahoo crowd and a certain Santa Barbara Club whom uses the road for it's WHEELED EVENTS and is worried about STRAYS reaching over the berms and tagging a cranium.

It's a bad scene... In this case... the few will ruin it for the many... and it will be over... forever. I'm a small guy, but have no problem walking up to a group and talking things out. It isn't always well received, but at least I put forward an effort. I realize this type of action is tenuous at best and I want no one risking themselves or loved ones in trying to self-police.

I'm just saying'...

I hope the range stays open. Let me see a sign of hands of those who can help-out. I'll bring some tools, waters and try for hot-dogs.

Thanx,

Craig

Ok then... Let's do it. Sat. Oct 1st from 8:00 to 5:00. Wheel barrels, rakes, flat blade shovels, gloves and a strong backs. Ranger Larry will be there @ 9:30 for gun control. I'll bring an ez-up and a grill, coolers with ice and waters.

Someone bring the dogs, buns and fixings, that would help me out.

I am still working on improvements to the range; more shooting benches, permeant signs, and hidden video cameras. Also, a long shade structure to cover the firing line... But working on government funding is a nightmare.

Thanx again...

Any way a noobie could join in on the fun? I'm willing to help out, might need someone to commute with. I can provide some equipment if I could get help bringing it. My car won't handle most of it safely. I've been looking for a place to shoot since all the places in Ventura are becoming EPA friendly and won't allow reloads or surplus ammo. Could someone PM me and fill me in?

Fab, all I want to do is be productive and a part of a solution to the guns/shooting issue around the region I live in. Sooooo, if anybody is willing to carpool, I will be glad to help out. I'm unemployed, so gas is one of those luxuries I kinda scrimp on. If not, at least directions to the cleanup (if I can rustle up some extra go-go juice for my metal steed) would be appreciated. Not seeing anyone from Ventura so far on this thread. Would we also be slingin' lead too? If so, what's allowed....remember, noobie here.

I can't help with the whole car ride from Ventura thing but...

If we shoot or not will be determined by the amount of people that show up and help us out. The more people we have, the quicker the cleanup will be finished. Then we eat and shoot!

From the past cleanups I've attended it took ~3hrs for ~25 people to fill one of the 40ft dumpsters.

GREAT, but the clean-up is the deal, because of what it takes to get this kinda thing done. Plus... the sun is goin' down a little sooner these days.

Excellent Reminder


While this is for calgunners traditionally a "Clean n Shoot" - because of the resources levied by sponsors and such, please be cognisant that range cleanup and 100% resource capacity and utilization is our top priority.

Also - I'm not sure if it was mentioned, but the Rangers usually post up and "close the range to fire" @prrx 9am. So if you're dead set on getting some fire time in, please make whatever arrangements you need to in order to get to the range and get your shooting time in before 9am start.

Craig, the 9am start is still the intended begin time, correct?

From Ventura 101 north you will exit State street and continue straight onto El Camino Real. ( Stay straight off the off ramp ) Turn right onto CA 154 about a 1/3 of a mile away. Go up 154 ( watch speed lots of cops on the weekend ) about 7 miles. Once you begin to clear the cliff and get into the pass the street East Camino Cielo will come up on the right quickly. Make the right and travel on Camino Cielo for about 20 min. You will pass Painted cave road on the right continue roughly 5 more minutes then look to the left for a turn out will a parking area. You should see a bunch of people to clean or a lot of trash or both. On the way out there is a small parking area for Knap Castle where you may see some cars. The glass factory has an actual parking area and some tables so dont get them confused.

Sorry for bothering everyone, but if I can't hitch a ride with "VenturaSurf", could someone at least give me directions to this place? Might be able to scrape together funds for gas and even bring the little lady with me for more help.

I'll chip in $5 to make it easier for you to come out and help. Just come introduce yourself and I'll give you $5. Easy as that;)

Here's a better explanation of directions after you get on East Camino Cielo:

Just remember when you're going up the hill... keep going until you think you are lost, go some more, then when you think you're really lost... go some more! haha

:rofl: basically truth. Right about the time you abandon all hope and assume you are out in the middle of no where - suddenly a pasture of washing machines, tvs and computers riddled with bullet holes appears before you

No money needed to bribe me, I'll be there, but I might not be able to arrive before 9:30-10:00am. Gotta get the stuff from garage and rouse the sleepy son. Wife refuses to come, says she only gets to clean house on the weekend. Didn't argue, already in doghouse.

Had a blast working my oversized gluteus maximus off today. Thank all of you for the warm welcome. For those of you that help familiarize me with various types/styles of handguns and rifles, I thank you for the experience AND for puttln' a burr under my "gotta have" saddle. Looks like I know where some of the future mad money will go.:D

I was wondering if there were any after photos, too bad. But I can confirm it looks a lot better.

For those of you not there we got all of the trash you see in the second photo (there was a whole lot you couldn't see) and a bit more. The dumpster was full to the brim.

Well the kids were acting up in school and got escalated to "parent contact" this last week and I thought making them pick up trash would be decent penance for them. It kind of backfired - they had so much fun they didn't want to leave, they talked the whole way back about all the new friends they made and now they're asking when we're going back to do it again.

Sorry about that, if I knew there was punishment involved, the wheel barrel rides would have been them pushing me up the hill :p But they were good kids to work with, listened and didn't complain at all really.

Oh that was YOU lol - yeah Ryan calls you his best friend now.

"My new best friend gives me rides in the wheelbarrow" and "my new best friend is really cool" and "I like my best friend's hat", he went on and on about best friend this and best friend that all the way back to the 101.

Thanks for the wheelbarrow rides, punishment or not. The boys need lots of experiences like that around good people and good causes and they'll carry those memories with them always.

It was an eye-opening experience for me , plus I got to make friends with two well behaved young men (not to mention all the great people I talked with) with a spirit of adventure plus they were very inquisitive. You've got a couple of great little guys there. Thank you, for the opportunity to help a situation get better. By the way, I apologize for not formally introducing myself to you. That was a grievous error on my part. At least now, someone can vouch for me, tell Ryan I enjoyed working with him. They BOTH are really great boys, you should both be proud of them

Here's a belated thanks to everyone here who helps clean the glass facto, sorry I couldn't make it to the last effort. I took some coworkers up yesterday and it still looks 10x better then it did a few years ago. It looks like a lot of shooters are starting to be a little more responsible as well. I saw a few TV's and a bunch of plastic trash, but nowhere near the accumulation I've seen before.

It is closed through the end of the fire season. I'm sure it's pretty bad up there right now.

To all that did such a Great job on that Clean-Up::Thanks
Some really nice pictures / Great to see the kids doing such a good job ( Nice parenting Too ! )
We just had another BLM Clean-up down here at a local area near Perris on Saturday
http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/showthread.php?t=606961

Let me know if you need one of these:
http://i51.photobucket.com/albums/f365/eatdirt76/013-2.jpg

I made the first sign a while back for the Clean-Ups we started in Bee Canyon
Got approval from the Forest Service to place a sign out in the canyons after cleaning them
Now the efforts have moved out to BLM areas
They have No Problem with us sticking a sign in the ground and are So pleased with all our efforts
Now we all know what will happen to a paper sign over time out in a shooting area ..But .....I Hope ...It will make some people stop and think before leaving a pile of junk out there
And it has worked on that level down here

When I did my first clean-Up down here ,,I had just 2 people show up ,,Now ,,,When I post an " Event" and others jump on it and keep the thread going . I'll have a Heard of Great Cal-Gun people signing up to help
At the first perris 'Event' I contacted the local paper about it and they did a nice article / That drew out even more people to help !!
( Must of had 70 people total for that one !!!! )
This last clean-up we filled a large dumpster like the one you had by noon ...........
Then of course ...Plinking after !!

I just wish I could have contributed. All of you who participated are fine representatives of the sport.

It's too bad that this and every other public shooting area is visited by people with no regard for the privilege, the environment, other shooters, the managers and employees who deal with this problem, and for the image of shooters in general.

I hope to get out there soon and bring my own trash bags to pick up again what I can as well as not leave any of my trash behind.

Would it be a good idea to talk to rangers about building a bulletin board that shows photos of clean-ups yet stresses that all should not leave trash behind? I would think if done might create a sense of community and people who abuse the range would be seen as violators of the common regard of the Glass Factory.

I took my Mom and Wife to SY for some wine last weekend. There were cops and cones blocking ECC at the 154. Was that just an isolated incident, or is the road closed for some reason? I'm looking for something to do Sunday and I'd love to take my daughter for a drive to the glass factory and beyond. She's too young for shooting, so it being closed is fine, but I'd certainly leave with a couple bags of trash. I've yet to shoot there, but I go camping back there about once a year and I look forward to shooting there.

there was a downed powerline fire in the area - probably the reason
