Default Cal -Guns Get An Award for Clean-Up Efforts In Bee Canyon

Today I was out in Bee Canyon at the Staging Area and met up with the LEO Ranger
Chatted for a few and then she says " Wait ....I've got something for you "
Goes to her vehicle and brings me back a large manila envelope

I open it and it's a Certificate Of Appreciation
for all the Hard work the Cal-Gun Volunteers have done in Bee Canyon








At the Next Canyon Clean on Saturday June 9th
We will have an Official presentation , With pictures

That is really cool. That's the kind of recognition we need as a group.

Outstanding!

You should let Kestryll, Gene, and the others know about it. Maybe we can use it for PR on other efforts.

Congratulations!



Hopefully this clean-up will help keep that area open for shooting.

The next 'Clean-Up' will be the 5th time / Each time a different Canyon

Then I'm out there every almost weekend ... Maybe introducing them to Cal-Guns
Telling them where the Dumpsters are .To use after shooting
Also doing some clean-up myself / The Rhino comes in handy for that !!!

I talked to the ranger that gave that to Eat Dirt later in the day where my shooting area is (she was making her rounds) and she told me she is going to try to contact a news paper to come out during a clean up. She was excited about it and said some of the main bosses have taken notice of the clean up efforts and are pretty happy about it. I think thats great PR for Calguns.

She also thought we should have a Calguns BBQ after a clean up at the ranger station where we dump the trash at. They have a little area with a table under some trees.

Eat Dirt, if you think it would be a good idea I will kick in the cash to have some color copies made to hand out to volunteers during a clean up.

Congratulations to those who have participated in the cleanups as this is a well deserved award!

We all owe Eat Dirt a special congratulations because if it wasn't for his efforts in beginning this program and being out there every weekend cleaning up as SOP for him (and getting a little brass for himself), this area would never be as clean as it is. Thanks RON!

Bravo, Bee Canyon Cal Gunners!!

Unfortunately, I believe they will be serving Popsicles in hell before the "Depressed Enterprise" ran a positive article on shooting sports. I really do hope that they prove me wrong.

I was Really Shocked when the Ranger gave me that Envelope ...

I wasn't expecting anything like that
I'm not doing this for the 'Name in the paper' type of thing
I'm doing it to help keep a Great shooting area open / And areas like this are quickly fading away

This award is also for all the hard working people that come out here to help on these clean-ups
I couldn't do it with out All of these Great people

Very nice!

But please don't discount the "'Name in the paper' type of thing" Any articles & news mention that shows gunnies in a good light will benefit us at some point. Here in CA we need all the good press and friends we can get!

Awesome Ron, Glad I could be a part of it. Thanks for your hard work organizing the clean-up events. We appreciate being able to use the canyon and It wouldn't be possible with out the dirty work of keeping the place clean.

This is awesome, there's really no other word for it.

All of you and the effort you put in to these clean ups are simply amazing.

Kes, the intent was to bring the certificate to Raahauge's so you could see it and so we could display it for visitors to see the good we do. Unfortunately, the mail didn't cooperate and I didn't get it in my mailbox until I returned from my Sat. shift at Raahauge's.

Eat Dirt will be mailing it to you.
