Here's the answer to the BIG 4 Questions:
The Hot Tub and Sauna area will be closed this year due to liability. We are using the area as a memorial to cavers we have lost, so if you have some memories to add or gear from a caver you'd like to share, please bring it to the new memorial area to display. We have all experienced a hard year, with so much loss to the Caving Community and our families. This is a tribute to memories.
Also, LASER POINTERS are banned, along with AIR HORNS and BOMBS.
Laser pointers will be confiscated.
If you placed an order for a "Buff" / Neck Gaiter: there have been supply chain issues and we will not have them in time for the event. We will refund your purchase price on those at registration at the event. Our apologies.
ON SITE REGISTRATION will be Thursday 12PM until Saturday 4PM EASTERN TIME.
We always need volunteers to help staff registration, and we'll give you a (special edition) t-shirt if you stay for 2 hours or more.
Please sign up HERE if you want to give us a hand! TIA!
