Google map for river cleanup registration working well

We have about 6-weeks left until the National River Cleanup Week registration deadline arrives and we've already exceeded last year's number of organizers by 50 - very cool! We've had a couple of hiccups early on with the Google-map-in-reverse strategy, but it seems to be working just fine now - I think it was (usually is) an issue with our language, not clear enough.

We've come a long way since our launch in December with 5 registrations. It's been fun as the department has been taking bets on how many cleanups will be organized (yes, I've been the skeptical one with the low number); makes it interesting when the Google map is populated in real-time. As of today, we have 219 registrations. Check it out.
