2014 29th GRCU Final Report

Posted by Jay

What can I say, the stars all lined up for a great GRCU. You came through again, to make the 29th GRCU the best clean-up yet. Thanks to all you volunteers who made sure the banks of the Green are clean for another year. Special thanks to WRRR board of directors who take on the ever increasing logistical challenges of the GRCU.

Here are the stats for 2014 29th GRCU:

New record boater turnout:
224 registered volunteers for a total of 608 volunteer hours.

New record for least amount of garbage removed:
Less than 1 cu. Yd. 900 to 1000 lbs. (This is a good thing)

New record rain fall for GRCU:
Somebody was praying for rain and boy did we get it.

New record or near new record for GRCU flows:
2150 cfs; great level, only 2nd time in GRCU history at flows over 2000 cfs. No reports of incidents, which is common at these flows.

A cleaner Green River, more awareness, lots of personal first descents as well as long time GRCU veterans again made this the biggest best clean-up in the PNW.
Mark your 2015 calendars now for the 30th GRCU, Saturday may 2nd 2015. We are planning some special things. Let’s break some more records next year. SYOTGR
