Default San Diego BLM meet and greet/clean up UPDATE for feb 27

Go to last post for updates . Planning on small scouting trip either Monday the 25th or Wednesday the 27th.
There might be some hiking involved.

It will be on Wednesday the 27th. At 8:30 am.

There will be no posting the location in open forum. We will be meeting at a neutral location, near by, where we can get gas, food, extra bags,etc. The emphasis will be on meeting other responsible shooters that want to keep our BLM clean and available. I will give more info in PM for those that are interested. If it goes well , We will be planning a monthly clean up and shoot for San Diego. I will be looking forward to meeting with my fellow San Diego Members!

FAQ answers:

If you would like to come to the meet and get to know some new people , but cant make it to the shooting spot, that is fine too.

I have been asked about taking small private groups out so they are more comfortable ( people reluctant to go out to strange areas alone,families with children, etc...). That is definitely possible, and I would be glad to accommodate as much as I am able. The goal is to get as diverse a group of members out to our lands to keep them clean and enjoy them.

If you are coming out some good things to bring are:
comfortable clothes, durable shoes or boots(no flip flops), a hat and sunglasses, work or gardening gloves, sunscreen, water or drinks, snacks or food that does not need to be cooked, black trash bags, large bucket or cardboard box to put bag in incase it rips, small grocery bag or bucket for brass, rake, shovel, metal screen, tarp, first aid kit for possible small cuts scrapes, small chair , small trash can, and don't forget eyes and ears for shooting, and ammo etc.. Not all these things are necessary, because most people will have some things and probably not mind sharing.

These are pretty fun and casual events, but safety will always be paramount. Anyone or anything that seems unsafe or irresponsible will immediately cancel the clean up/ shoot. That is another reason why we meet in a public place first and get to know everybody heading out.

I do not mind you bringing a friend, just let me know in advance so I know how many people to expect.

Some spots are only reachable by high clearance vehicles like trucks, some are accessible to most non lowered cars, and some will have to be hiked to and from on foot. SO not having a 4x4 does not preclude you from being able to get to some of these places. I will try my best to clarify depending on which location is planned.


(Original post)
I am planning on going out to a San Diego BLM spot to look around, clean up, and shoot. It will either be this wednesday the 23rd, or next monday the 28th. I will be taking my truck and couple trash bags. We will be cleaning first, and then shooting. If anybody here is interested, please send me a PM, so I can gauge the interest.

Here is the list I have so far for the 28th:
sdfire
gshraptor
Jay D
MG34
CincyStroker

SB1964
ntrddragn
GreasyOldGranny

PM sent. Was out there last week and it wasn't too bad. It could still use a good cleaning and we have to get people to stop shooting the trees. I've got an F-150 with a lot of bed space. I have to leave there by 1230 though.

Ok it seems like it's a Go for this wednesday the 23rd. I sent PMs to those that responded, and we will be leaving the meeting spot at 0900 hours. I will add a list of those that confirmed in the first post. Also, if anybody here happens to have Officer Funk's new phone number, I would like to give him a call.

There should be at least one clean up/ meet and greet a month here in the San Diego, so if you can't make this one, there will hopefully be more coming soon.

I just found this, obviously too late. Can you add me to the list of potential helpers on future events like this and PM me during the planning?

not too sure of the area you are talking about but where I go I never leave there without a 50 gal tash can full of things and a 2.5 gal bucket full of brass. Works out good for everyone.

Default Great meet and greet!

Well it was a good clean up today! We had 6 Calguns members out there, and we picked up some trash from two ranges out in BLM land. It was a beautiful day out as well. Not too hot, cold, or windy, just a partly cloudy day. Perfect for cleaning and shooting. We cleaned for about an hour, filling multiple trash bags , then set up our own targets and did some shooting. Thanks to everybody who made it out.

We will try to have at least one C3 cleanup/shoot a month in the future. There are different spots in SD County that could use a good cleanup. The more members that we can get out there, the better. It shows our effort on a local level to keep our BLM shooting areas cleaner, and available. For those that are interested in the next one, just send me a pm with your contact info. It is a great chance to meet your fellow Calguns members, and make some new shooting friends.

The pics below are after we cleaned.(the trash bag in the one pic was for when we were done shooting)

I'd love to participate in this next time, if I can. During the week is a little hard for me but I'll give it a try, and if there is a weekend cleanup, I know I can make that.

Thanks for putting this together. Had a good time out there, and look forward to heading out again soon.

Weather was perfect! Had some cloud cover and mild temps.

I was pleased to see that the area was in good shape for the most part, We still managed to get a good bit of rubbish out of there, do a little shooting and meet some new people

Thanks again

Glad to see that spot getting some organized action. When we're out there on our own we will make sure to do some spot-cleaning.

Well, bloody hell. Missed that one! Gotta keep an eye on this one. We very much need to do this more often or spots are going to go the way of Jacumba...
I might be able to do the next two before I deploy, definitely keep the thread updated!
Thanks

Remember, Jacumba was NOT closed because of trash. It was closed because those people in the border patrol decided they HAD to have the top of shooters hill as a look out post which their BLM lap dogs willingly gave to them. By the way, I rarely see any of their vehicles up there. BUT, I'm not bitter at all......

Also , the location in north county will have to wait this time. I think it is currently snowing there. So south county this time.

Keep up the results, SDFire. You other guys should keep up the efforts regardless of the drive. We are losing shooting ground despite gas costs....

Thumbs up Another great clean up !

It was another great clean up, thanks to everybody who came. we were able to clean up two different spots in the same area today. It was a great day for cleaning once again. the weather was perfect , and we got some shooting in as well. I got a lot of cancellations, but we did a great job with how few people we had. I cant wait to see what we can do with a bigger group. I also got my BLM maps in the mail today, so I will be planning another clean up/scouting trip in a couple of weeks. Hopefully Musick's group will have a great clean up this saturday the 16th. Below are the after pics of the two spots we cleaned.

For those of you that couldn't make it today, I will keep your names for the next one. I have found a few spots further east, and north as well. so stay tuned.

Thanks so much for your efforts in organizing these events! I hope my event yields good results as well.

good job guys I just saw this maybe next time, you guys need to be informed about the Renewable Energy Conservation Plan the State is coming up with for BLM lands. In short they plan on locking up hundreds of thousands of acres on BLM lands and giving it to industrial wind farms, seriously bad news for public land users. I'll post info as I find it.
