June 16, 2021 - BRCS - River Pitch to Shumsky

River Pitch to Shumsky

Today's clean up crew was small, only four people.  
But the haul was large!

Jocelyn's and Mike's "pokey  sticks" were frequently used for retrieving cans,
an intact bag of beef hot dogs and multiple other treasures from the bottom
of the river.  Becky now has a table leg for her scavenged redwood table top
from Monday's clean up. A cellphone that was in a great waterproof bag might
be reunited with it's owner. The blue "thingy" that tipped over one of our
kayaks has a  new home.

Overall it was another successful BRCS!

NOTE:  The BRCS thanks Ann Riechert and Becky Beach for taking on this
section cleanup without being asked to.  It was a huge help to us.
