OCTOBER 1, 2005 New Braunfels, Texas
for fun, the council gathers once a year in scenic New Braunfels to clean
the crystal clear Comal River after a season of tubers have
"lost" literally tons of trash. You can be proud that this is
one of the oldest environmental clean up campaigns in the nation --- we
taught the rest of 'em how to do it, Texas style!
wait? If you would like to brush up on your diving skills, practice diving
in the shortest river in Texas, enjoy the underwater view or just need to
get wet, New Braunfels just can't be beat. Be sure to wear your Trashfest
T-shirt, and it wouldn't hurt if you pass this on to both your diving and
information, contact the New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce at
