PV Trail Cleanup Saturday 6-7-08
A message from Beach Runner and SoCalRunning member Bernice…
National Trails Day and Portuguese Bend Cleanup
“Hey! How have you all been?
Maybe you’ve checked Socal Running (Ning), maybe you haven’t. Just in case you haven’t, we’re having another Trail Maintenance in Palos Verdes (sponsored by REI) this Saturday from 9AM-12NN. Some free stuff from REI, including lunch. We’ll have an hour run at 7AM starting from the Trump Golf Course, as usual. Just Section 1 and part of the road. Then change into our work clothes for the trail maintenance. Long pants and closed shoes please. Sunblock for tan line control. Bring your own garden gloves for sanitary reasons. (I forgot to bring gloves last time. Eeewww!) Drinking water is provided. Don’t forget your happy face.
I’d just like to add, the trail maintenance we did in May was therapeutic for me. It was kinda nice pulling out those weeds and cutting the overgrown plants. Met a lot of new people who love the trails too. And had fun with the Beach Runners, of course, including Gary, whom I had the pleasure of sharing some thoughts with.
Just so you know, Peter, who is coordinating this project, informed Steve and Gary of this, as courtesy, since it was going to overlap with BR Long Beach Saturday run. It’s only a few of us anyway. And I’m pretty sure manual labor doesn’t appeal to the general public. Just us trail addicts who want an excuse to go to PV. So for some of you doing the LB run in the morning, you might want to squeeze in a few hours with us.
Let us know if you can make it so we can reserve a slot for you for your free REI shirt. ”
