    My fellow cavers,

    My sad to announce that DCG has lost a caver and LONGTIME member.
    Kath Mackay cofirmed that Jim Youmans passed away on May 20th.

    There are many stories about Jim, we'll recount a few (maybe more than a few) at the upcoming DCG Members meeting on June 1st at 7:30PM.

    My fellow cavers,

    I've uploaded the video of our May 2021 Members Meeting to our new YouTube channel.

    Please bear in mind, this is experimental, and so this youtube channel isn't "official". Whereas the video itself isn't members-only, it IS unpublished, meaning you need this link to watch it.

    In case you weren't able to attend the meeting online or onsite, or perhaps you had so much fun you just want to experience it again, there you go!

    My fellow Cavers:

    On April 27th,  2021, the membership of Dogwood City Grotto came together to discuss, debate & vote on a proposed amendment to the bylaws of the grotto.

    The amendment updated a section on member governance, and was modeled from an article in the bylaws of the NSS.

    The Chair is very pleased to announce that the members present voted overwhelmingly to approve the amendment, which takes effect immediately. We are pleased to be closer in sync with our parent organization, and believe this will benefit the grotto & all its members.

    Keep caving, my friends...

    Hello my fellow cavers of Dogwood City Grotto,

    After the departure of several officers from the Board of Directors (EC), on March 6th at Cherokee Farms, the grotto voted to entrust me with the Chairmanship of the Board of Directors of this grotto for the remainder of 2021.

    It's an an ineffable honor that this wonderful caving family has bestowed upon me, and I'll spare no effort in my duties to the grotto.

    I joined DCG, roughly ten years ago, because I wanted to go caving. I only knew where one cave was, and I didn't know how to get into it, or even what equipment I needed. Since then, the caving community has gotten me up to speed, and I go every chance I get!

    I can't wait to go caving with everyone!
    Well, what are we waiting for???

    Let's Go Caving!!
