Please register with a volunteer at the OSV entrance before driving onto the OSV zone.

This is not your normal weekend race to get on. All participants will not count towards the 145 limit. Be patient during registration, everyone will get on the beach. We promise!

Our team members in orange vests will guide you through registration. Please listen to their instructions.

Time to get your hands dirty
Unless you brought gloves of course.

At this point we have assigned you a KM on the beach, work as a group or spread out to collect as much trash as possible. From the shoreline, into the dunes and as far toward the bay as you feel comfortable traversing.

Not everything is trash, here is a list of things to avoid:

  • Artifacts. If it’s old wood or metal, leave it alone. It could be from a past shipwreck.
  • Drift wood, animal remains and natural rubbish
  • Left over camp fire wood, please toss towards the shoreline if within the driving tracks

Return to camp
Please return the OSV entrance area by 12:00PM noon for gate prize drawings.

The Beach Cleanup team will have relocated just north of the entrance on the OSV beach. Please form a line at our designated entrance to the parking area and wait for a volunteer to approach your vehicle. EVERYONE must stay INSIDE of your vehicle when you return for check-in. We will only be handing out drawing tickets to those in vehicles. If you leave your vehicle, no ticket and no chance to win. :( Once we have you checked in, you can empty your trash and park your vehicle.

Drawings will begin shortly after 12:00PM noon, please be patient while we wrangle up the last of our beach clean up crew.
