TrashFest 2009 TRASHFEST 2009
Saturday, October 3, 2009 New Braunfels, Texas
TrashFest is the nation’s oldest underwater cleanup campaign bringing together scuba divers from all over Texas, and the USA. To improve the quality of the Comal River in New Braunfels, Texas. The Comal River is the shortest river in the world. The 2.5-mile Comal River is one of the largest springs in Texas with 8 million gallons every hour. The water is pure, clear, and about 73 degrees year round, and attracts thousands of tubers and tourists to a bit of old Germany smack dab in the middle of the Texas Hill Country.
Since the first clean up in 1974, more than 9,500 volunteers have removed:
188,000 pounds of trash 300,000 cans and bottles 370,000 pop-tops and bottle caps 6,900 sunglasses and shoes Team Requirements: Up to eight (8) people per team – (as many teams as we want to have) divers and non-divers are welcome. Team members may rotate between diving and grounds crew, as long as at least two members are out of the water at all times. All individual entrants will be assigned to a team if they do not already have one. Any team with less than eight people may be assigned more people as individuals register. All divers MUST present C-Cards at registration.
Mike Craig 830.481.6867 or by going to member ID: 3850 (I will keep it up to date)
You can call me any time if you have any questions, I live in New Braunfels, and I have been participating in TrashFest for the last 5 years.
Registration is on the day of the event, from 8:00 AM - 10:00 AM, at the Comal County Fairgrounds. Team entry fee is $50 per team and individual entry fee is $8 per person. All participants will be required to sign the Trashfest Waiver (available at registration)
