Some people have raised concerns that the Facelift will be cancelled due to the fire. This is not true. They are getting the fire under control and it should have little or no impact on the Facelift other than less trash to pick up along Highway 120. Hope to see you there.

The message that was sent to all FaceLift campers, earlier today, by Sharon, ringmistress of camping. (Formatting lost, a few comments added in (square) brackets.)

10th Annual Yosemite Facelift 2013

Yosemite Climbing Association (YCA)

Thank you for volunteering at Yosemite Facelift 2013! Whether this is your 1st Facelift or your 3rd, 4th or 10th we are very happy that you are joining us.

Volunteer Check-In

Please see attached [above] flyer for check-in time and locations.

Feel free to use the park shuttles to get around.

Return to the check-in station with your trash any time before 3:00 PM (so it can be weighed and sorted.

Mark the map off when you return so we know what areas have been cleaned and suggest areas that may need more work.

Waiting for the raffle at 5:00 at the Visitor Center is a fun time to hang out with other volunteers. You have to be present to win, except those staying at Porcupine Flats. The raffle tickets of those staying at PF will be delivered to the Valley check-in each day, and do not need to be present to win.

EVENING PROGRAMS

Please see attached [above] flyer for the evening programs starting Tuesday, Sept. 24.

PARK ENTRANCE FEE

The fee is waived for Facelift volunteers. Mention you are part of the Facelift at the park entrance.

CAMPING

Per the request of National Park Service, please adhere to the campground regulations which are enforced during Facelift, especially two cars per site at Upper Pines. There is over-flow parking near by.

Sharon looks after organizing the camping: yosemitefaceliftcamping@hotmail.com

It may be too late now to get a site in the Valley, but you never know. There could be cancellations, plus perhaps there's room at Porcupine Flat.

The illustrious FatTrad informs me that: "Just confirming with you that I will be bringing dogs/burgers for 15 people, ketchup/mustard, bbq utensils. THE BIG NEWS……. Sharing tent site (in Yeller Pines) with Dr. F, Craig Fry. And The Shermans."

I suggest that anyone camping within 100 m bring earplugs. Could be lively.

Edit: 100 m = 100 metres. Sorry. A site featuring Jeff, Bill, Anastasia, Aristides, Craig, and maybe Matthew could be fairly loud.

100 miles? I guess Andy's been practicing. Or gone electric.


This should be interesting.

I will be thinking of you guys this year, as Christina and I won't be attending. Sad to miss the Facelift, but excited to be climbing a big mountain. Have a good time for me all!

It is with a very heavy heart that I just sent an email to cancel our reservations for Facelift this year. I was holding out and hoping that our employment situation would improve, but the hubby and I are both pounding the pavement and trying to keep the muppet in preschool.

I'll miss you all terribly, but will be there in spirit.

Howl!!!!! I'm still in disbelief.
