Bob Haskins, the Coordinator of "Keep Mobile Beautiful," wrote us a couple of weeks ago that he had discovered a small tributary of Three Mile Creek that is jam-packed with trash and debris from stormwater runoff. He is looking for volunteers with skiffs, small row boats, canoes, etc., to help with the cleanup. He has projected Saturday, May 11 as the cleanup day, starting about 8:00 a.m. or earlier and ending around noon with a picnic lunch. There will be plenty of drinks and snacks during the day.
This will be an exciting project that will make an immediate impact. Other local organizations will participate, and Bob hopes to have several dozen boats there, to make light work for everyone. Media coverage is also expected.
Bob's phone number is 208-6026.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS (FAQs)
1. We e-mail our monthly newsletter to anyone who requests it from Gene at email@example.com. Gene also snail-mails our newsletter to those members who request it. Contact Gene if you would like to receive a newsletter in either format.
2. We are a group of people who enjoy paddling and also enjoy sharing our experiences with others. We are not a formal organization. There are no dues, no application forms, no membership lists (other than Gene's e-mail list). All you have to do to "join" our "club" is send Gene your e-mail address, show up at a paddle, come to a meeting, or just decide you're a member.
3. Our intention is for safety to always be the first priority. It is up to each individual to decide for him/herself whether or not the paddling conditions for each event are within their enjoyment and skill range. Everyone must be responsible for their decision as to whether or not to participate in each event. The coordinator of the paddle should be able to assist with information on the expected paddle conditions. However, always remember that the weather and other conditions can, and quite often do, change both quickly and dramatically.
4. It is always a good idea to contact the trip coordinator for any paddling trip to let them know if you plan to attend. They can contact you with important information, such as trip cancellation, etc. Also, thanks to the paddlers who choose to carry a trash bag to collect rubbish along the way. They make it nicer for everyone.
