Long Dong Cleanup Autumn 2013

LD Cleanup Autumn 2013

Autumn is here and another round of cleaning is due for Long Dong, our beloved seaside crag. In cooperation with the local(Gongliao) district cleanup crew, the LD Cleanup group is organizing a Fall clean up on October 5th.

Each clean up makes a huge difference but typhoons, waves, tourists, and yes, even negligent climbers mean that regular cleanups are necessary to keep Long Dong tidy.

Join us Saturday October 5th  for a day of cleaning and possibly even some climbing later in the day.  Cleanup will happen 9am-2pm. There is no strict schedule but since the trash crew will arrive at 2pm to pick things up we recommend arriving by 1pm at the very latest to make a difference.

Because the local district cleanup crew is asking for a headcount, we greatly appreciate potential attendees to join the cleanup  event on facebook.

Update! From Organizer Ryan Keenan:
Good news!! Pei-Hsuan Chiang has spoken to the Gongliao district office and they will send boat(s) for us. They will also offer us gloves, towels, desserts, bottle water and trash bags. It seems they want to get some publicity this time, so some reporters and the “chief” will be there. They will put on some kind of opening ceremony in the morning and closing ceremony at noon at school gate. They would like us to gather as many people as we can to take group picture at 9:30am and 12:00. (The boats will be available from 9:00 to 12:00. But the trash truck will stay till 2:00pm).

So… it would be great if people could arrive as early as possible, both because we have a limited time to collect trash and because they want to gather people at 9:30 at School Gate. Anyone who’s driving please fill your car with as many cleaning enthusiasts as possible and people on public transport try to get an early start!
