Spring VAR 2013
May 17-19, 2013
Once again, Tri-State Grotto is hosting a Spring VAR meeting. The event will be held at Dilley's Mill located in Buckskin Scout Reservation, near Cass and Marlinton, West Virginia. The dates for this event will be 17th, 18th, and 19th of May. This is later than normal, but we've had to adjust to the Scout's schedule. We have lots of cave trips planed, plus lots of non-caving activities such as biking on the Greenbrier River Trail, Canoe or Kayak on the Greenbrier, and hiking.
To start off a great weekend, Tri-State's Chair - John DiCarlo - will host a bluegrass get-together Friday night, 7 pm. The Theme will be Mammals.
Saturday morning, Vice Chair Bob Bennett has a very large lineup of "led trips'. Those who pre-register will have an opportunity to sign up early. Some of the trips we're working on include: Swago, Lightners, Billy Clay Pit, and Simmons Mingo.
Saturday night's dinner will feature Pit Barbequed pork, with all the fixings and drinks, and we haven't forgotten you vegetarians. We're working on a Saturday night speaker. John Fox will DJ with the traditional cavers libations available on Saturday night. The always popular VAR business meting will be held Sunday morning for you speleo politicians. Front Royal Grotto will do their wonderful Sunday Breakfast.
We strongly urge you to use the pre-registration Form now. It ensures we will have a meal for you and it makes planning a whole lot easier.
For those who send in their registration early you have the advantage to pre-signup for the led cave trips. Once you have chosen which trip you would like to go on then send an email to: undergroundwv [at] comcast [dot] net with your 1st and 2nd preferences.
We look forward to seeing you in the spring. More information will be in the Spring Region Record. We will see you are VAR!
