It looked like the cleanup was a great success. I enjoyed meeting all of you.
Thanks to all who provided water, donuts, bagels and hotdogs.

Here is the time lapse video. I wil try and get some better resolution.
It contains ~1400 photos played at 30 frames per second.

No sooner than after everyone left, three carloads of SoCal's finest drinking beer and actin' rowdy showed up. My wife and I were cleaning up and I was raking up all the spent shells, one of them walked up to me and asked " You mean we gotta clean up after ourselves?? I looked at them and said "Of course you do, we just spent all day humpin' out a crap-load of junk and you should clean up after your done." He looked at me like I was speakin' another language (maybe I was...).

Another three groups of people showed up and started lining up a butt load of FULL beers all over the place then just opened up on them spraying glass and beer every where. By the time I left, the range was full of every type of idiot just being stupid. I saw one guy start to walk down range with live fire still happening. I yelled to stop...but I didn't want to witness a Darwin moment. I had to leave before I said something I'd regret. Makes you wonder about people.

thanks for the video. can you slow it down?

yes there is dumb people out there.

Thanks to all who showed up and helped, next time i think we need to get the left side done instead of the right side as we never get that left side cleaned up.

Noooooo...there were a couple of other winning groups show up. Those guys were good and I saw them take the TV away. I stayed a while longer and shot some more after our group left.

Nice video!!
Maybe you'all should post a sign "Video recording in Progress"
and leave it.
I've only been to Glass factory once, and never brought any target. The place was a mess. You people did Outstanding Work!!!

I personally don't understand why the US Forest service doesn't issue citations for illegal dumping. They could easily watch from the road above and drive down and issue a ticket. It would take a few watches on a weekend and the word would get around.

Love the video, thanks for doing that!

So, I noticed the stuff didn't seem to bother the ranger.

Great range cleanup.

I agree D Harry - The sheriff's and rangers could pull in a few $10K weekends by observing and ticketing the dumpers. Good chance that a lot of the trashers would have other prohibitions or violations as well.

Thanks to all the volunteers who put the cleanup together. Calguns Rocks !
