Save Virginia Key Rally

There is a Save Virginia Key Rally (from the Boat Show) on Saturday August 29 from 10 am until noon.

Join the rally to preserve beautiful and public Virginia Key. Members of the rally would like to move the Boat Show amd have city leaders follow the 2010 Master Plan which does not include a marina of any size. Even though the Miami Boat Show and City of Miami act like it's theirs, it's in public hands and the natural resources are protected. Environmental permits are required.

Meet up at 3701 Rickenbacker Causeway, Arthur Lamb Road.

9 am- Coffee and silent paddle to site
10 am - rally along the causeway
Noon - lunch
1 pm - Move down the Key for a day of service - tree planting and beach cleanup at the historic Virginia Key Beach Park (Orange pavilion)

I Googled "Save Virginia Key" and after filling out some sort of application I obtained -O- info, but did receive an e-mail verification code. I would call this type of process as having to jump thru some hoops, secretive, time consuming, a waste of time, difficult, and simply an effort to obtain info on all who apply, perhaps asking for money. I've spend hours, hours and a ton of hours walking throughout Virginal Key over the years because it's a very interesting local right in the shade of downtown Miami. I've removed dozens of interesting items while beach combing the entire area. I've dove up thousands of lobsters from Bear Cut, drank beer at Jimbo's, docked my boats at Duck Lake, etc., etc., and etc. Why make this secretive and difficult?
