Hope you can make it down, Dan. If you can't make the whole weekend, that's OK too. Either day we could use some help if you don't care to attend the class. We need in cave help for Sunday as we are expecting a record number in the class.

I'd like to bump this up to say..... the class is slowly filling up so please register soon. We have three people from Utah coming so far. :2thumbs: :2thumbs: :2thumbs:

We have decided to include FREE lunch Saturday for the classroom portion of the seminar. It will be a Mexican food provided by La Casita restaurant and includes soda pop and water.

Maybe it was the fact that it's filling up or maybe it was just the free food, but I sent my registration off tonight :nod:

If you need any help Dan let me know, I can cut class on Saturday.

Only one week to go before the big event. http://forums.caves.org/images/smilies/banana_yay.gif http://forums.caves.org/images/smilies/banana.gif http://forums.caves.org/images/smilies/banana_yay.gif http://forums.caves.org/images/smilies/banana.gif

This year one of our grotto members has built a type of practice cave with electronic sensors on the "formations" and a home built computer to run it all. I checked it out two weekends ago with some of the CCRN instructors. This thing is cool and will be in use for others to check out come Saturday. Should make for a really fun and challenging obstacle coarse. it has the ability to time and score your crawl through the cave. Hope to see you there. http://forums.caves.org/images/smilies/kewl.gif

Very informative during the classroom on Saturday, and Sunday went great. From my perspective everybody worked together well. I was evac leader for hucckies. I am just glad I wasn't evac for Pedro's, I hear Mike was fun to deal with. :roflol:
