Here is an e-mail from the Friends of Indian Creek. If you are headed there...it will be helpful for you to bring your own wag bags, so that there are plenty for folks to use who were unaware of the current issues at the creek. I'm headed there tomorrow for three weeks suckas!!
Here is a quick update, to let you know the latest.
On April 7th, Greg Child presented a slide show on a traverse of Comb
and the findings of many Ancient Anasazi ruins, at Mondo Café in Moab.
had a great turn out, and through the sale of raffle tickets for some
fantastic prizes from The North Face and Gearheads, we raised $560.00.
big thanks to Greg for a great show, and thanks to all of you who came
support the Friends of Indian Creek.
People have also been making donations in the donation box at Gearheads
thanks to you too.
And, we have raised over $200 from the sale of Friends of Indian Creek
t-shirts at Pagan Mountaineering, so thanks to the t-shirt buyers and
course to Pagan, for doing such a great job of selling them.
We have 4 kiosks situated at Indian Creek now, complete with wag bag
dispensers and donation boxes. The American Alpine Club provided the
for these kiosks and 1000 wag bags. We are pleased to say that we are
out of wag bags. They seem to be a big hit and people are discovering
using them really isn’t that bad, and obviously realize the alternative
trying to dig a hole where someone else hasn’t already been before and
having to pay fees for the privilege of going to Indian Creek is not
a very desirable one. So again, thanks to all of you who have taken the
by the horns and are helping to save Indian Creek as we know by using
wag bags. Also, thanks to those who have been making donations. As I
we are almost out of wag bags, and we will need to buy more, so
will be gratefully received.
Keep your eyes and ears open for the next FOIC slide show. We are in
process of lining up some more entertainment for you, and this will be
posted on the web site and an email will be sent out.
Well, keep up the good work. Things seem to be going great. As long as
are all out there doing our bit, we can make this work, and we can
to enjoy Indian Creek as we know it.
Bye for now,
