Anybody know what the first day you can camp at the campground is? Is it Monday or Sunday?

Bologna (bee-log'-nah). Scott fried it up in Huntsville in 2005 for the CaveChat folks. It was gourmet bologna, too, not that Oscar Meyer stuff.

On my bike ride tonight, I was thinking
-Whip
-Water shoes (for the alligator wrestling class)

Spatulas completely slipped my mind!

Hello from Convention. It's been a fabulous one! There's been far more to do than anyone could fit into one week. The host committee has done an outstanding job and the facilities and location are superb. :clap: Sorry all you at home missed it. I've heard a rumor that there are 1400+ cavers here, but haven't checked with registration to know the exact number.

I hope some of the cavechatters who are here will post some photos.

NZCaver and I hung two cavechat banners, and the NSS bookstore passed out bookmarks they found from a few years ago that advertised Cavechat.org. :kewl:

The sky is blue, and the cool high altitude temps a great respite from the heat in most of the rest of the US.

:))) I should've begged and jumped into Aaron's trunk, I know he drove out there. haha Although trunk might be a little hot, ok, snuck into the backseat on the floor. He better have said hi to ya'all there, I asked him to! :D

SG - I had your spatula and was looking for you last night at the Banquet to return it. It was taken from me by a young lady at the Mad Rats encampment for use in disciplining an unruly group of cavers. Once the unruliness had been quelled, I lost interest in the proceedings and went to the hot tub and sauna. Present location of your spatula (which has been distinctively annotated with your name and other commentary) is unknown.

I was hunting around for you at the Banquet but couldn't find you. I saw Andy A, whom I think is your political cohort, and he didn't know where you were. I did another lap with a slight wend through, then gave up.

Barbara,

Bonny and I were camped at MadRats and now have your spatula. We will bring it to the WV convention for you since Bill was not up to the task. :big grin:

P.S. Instead of just a political cohort, I like to think of myself as the Karl Rove of the Hodag Party. :shrug:
