    Hello fellow cavers, friends, and family,

    As you may be aware, the Cave-In Advisory Board has been closely monitoring recent events. We have been optimistic in our intention that our beloved TAG Fall Cave-In would not be affected, and have collectively and individually pondered, watched, and hoped that the events of the day would be resolved.

    We feel responsible for keeping our community safe and healthy, as our caving impacts many facets beyond our community, including local businesses, the residents of Dade and Walker County (Georgia), and all the people we meet on the journey to visit the unique underground environment we call "TAG." Most importantly we have a responsibility to you, our members, attendees, and to your families. Thus, the decision has been made with heart-felt heaviness to cancel the TAG Fall Cave-In for 2020. However, we are excited to see the world and our local communities become stable and back to "normal" again in the coming year, as our hope has not been cancelled.

    We love you all and look forward to an amazing TAG Fall Cave-In that is being planned for 2021. In the meantime, invite a friend, gather in small groups, be safe, have fun, and Let’s Go Caving!

    Warmest regards,

    Lisa Andrews

    2020 TAG Fall Cave-In Chair

    Lisa Andrews will be the chair for the 2020 TAG Fall Cave In!

    Lisa has been associated with / or a member of the Dogwood City Grotto and has been caving on and off for about 18 years. Both her first group trip through Howard's waterfall and first TAG were in 2002. Always a lover of rocks and walking in stream beds, caving was beckoning as the next great series of adventures.

    She finds there are many great things about caving: coming to terms with a fear of heights (it helps that it is dark), learning to trust yourself and the people you are with, testing your limits and then realizing you can always do more than originally thought.

    However, the best thing about caving is always the people that you meet! Lisa is looking forward to seeing you all at TAG, Let's Go Caving in 2020!

    We are so excited you are coming to the 42nd Annual TAG Fall Cave-In. It's going to be a great time. 

    We want you to know the GA Forestry Service has a total burn ban in effect at this time for Dade and Walker County as well as other northwest GA areas.  This burn ban means we may not be able to have campfires during the TAG Fall Cave-In.  This will include charcoal fires as well as regular campfires so you need to plan on cooking on camp stoves only.

    Hungry Hollow Concessions will be back this year as our food vendor. They have great food so you won't go hungry if you can't have a campfire.

    See everyone soon!

    Hey there TAGers, just a reminder that there will be a CLIMBING CONTEST going on during the TAG Fall Cave In with some sweet prizes up for grabs. Keep doing your squats and come ready for speed!

    There will also be a ROPES COURSE set up for practicing some of those rope maneuvers that are not seen every trip. It will be open on Friday from 2pm to 6pm and Saturday from 9am to 1pm. See you on the mountain!

    We will be constructing the BIG Saturday bonfire and also build the Friday night fire for the TAG Fall Cave-In, perform campsite cleanups, and many other projects, Chainsaws are needed (along with proper safety equipment such as chaps and eye protection); also weed eaters & loppers for clearing campsites and common areas. As always, camping will be available and WORKERS will be fed (thanks to our wonderful work weekend food crew). Volunteers will also receive a super duper TAG Fall Cave in Gift.  Hope to see everyone there! 

    While not required, RSVP through the event page on our website is encouraged to help us best plan for food.

    For Any Questions, contact the super awesome cave in chair, Tamara LeSage by email at  caveinchair@dogwoodcitygrotto.org or any member of the Cave In Advisory Board or Grotto Board of Directors.

    She’s back for round two! After doing a fantastic job last year, Tamara LeSage has been appointed as the 2019 TAG Fall Cave In Chair at the recommendation of the Cave In Advisory Board. Tamara has been around the TAG Fall Cave In for many years and puts a lot into the event in various ways. We are looking forward to see how she will top last year's event!

    The TAG Fall Cave In is an annual event hosted by the Dogwood City Grotto. It is held Columbus Day weekend on Lookout Mountain. The annual attendance has been over 1,000 folks from across the world in the past few years. The proceeds from the TAG Fall Cave In are given back to our caving community in the form of grants. In 2018, $6,000 were given to various requestors to finance a variety of caving related projects.

    Let us know if you need anything.
