Annual Pond Cleaning

  • 21 Mar 2023
  • 7:30 AM - 12:30 PM
  • Casting Ponds


Registration is closed

This year's pond cleaning will take place on TUESDAY, March 21, 2023, starting at 7:30 AM. 

Join us for spring cleaning at the GGACC — we need your help to get the ponds in shape and ready for a season of casting! 

Every year in the spring, a group of hard-working club members, along with staff from SF Rec and Parks, spend a few hours preparing the club’s casting ponds for the season. We plan to meet up in the morning at 7:30AM and are usually done by 12:30PM.

The tools we use are old-school: brooms and shovels, wheelbarrows and elbow grease. Those who are feeling adventurous can volunteer for the hose crew! The Rec & Parks Dept. will provide all of the tools and a handful of employees to help us with the work.  After the ponds are thoroughly cleaned and dry, they will also coordinate the removal of any aquatic growth in the ponds and repair the cracks in the concrete. 

All you need to bring is your waders (or a pair of rubber boots), eye protection, maybe a pair of work gloves., and a good attitude!

We hope you will consider joining us on March 21st and giving the GGACC a few hours of your time. We need at least 30 volunteers to get the job done.  Please register for this effort on this page so we will have an idea of how many workers we have. We will start refilling the ponds as soon as we are done cleaning on Tuesday so we all can be practicing our casting as soon as possible!
