Lane Cove CITO 2013

CITOCrewAfter a day of torrential rain on the Saturday we were worried that Sunday's CITO would have to be cancelled, but it ended up glorious sunshine and the track was in pretty good condition. In the end we had more than 20 geocachers show up and the car pool we organised between Tunks Hill and the Dehli Rd entranced worked well.

After a safety briefing every member headed out with a fluoro vest, gloves and bags. We covered the entire river side track on the south side of the river from the Weir to the bridge. All in all the track was quite clean with 90 per cent of the rubbish coming from the river bank as expected.  It was almost a competition between the teams as to who could find the rubbish first.

By the end of the CITO we had collected approximately 10 bags of trash, which we were able to empty into the bins along the way - so there was a lot more than it seems in the attached photo.

From all reports people had a great time. There were no incidents or injuries to report apart from some soggy socks. You can read about the event from participants here http://coord.info/GC48G73
