Yeah, I hear ya. Seems like an easy choice. It may be silly, but I don't want to miss PA because it would break my streak of 15 conventions in a row! At least I know one thing. If I do go to PA, I'm going caving with Cavemud! :woohoo:

Re 2013 - the only dates available were the week of the ICS and the date 2 weeks later. So the August date was the only choice, as it did allow folks time to return from the Czech Republic & to attend the Convention. Yes, it would impact attending post ICS field camps but, even if it was possible, moving it later also impacts teachers & students who attend Conventions.

Re 2014 - there are two groups offering to host. The Rolla groups bid was presented at the Fall meeting and can be voted on at the Spring BOG meeting. The Huntsville bid will be presented at the Spring meeting and cannot be voted on until the Summer meeting. Both groups are willing to host in 2015. Both groups have good facilities to offer, lots of caving and will to a great job.

Re Nevada, there is a group considering hosting a Convention in Nevada. As yet they have not put together a bid.

Kyle,

Below is copied from the agenda for the BOG meeting this weekend...

16) NSS 2014 Convention
Schindel moves: Rolla, Missouri is confirmed as the site of the 2014 NSS Convention.
Note: A report by Carol Tiderman was forwarded to the board by email on October 6, 2011 regarding her site visit to the Missouri School of Mines, proposed site for the 2014 NSS Convention. Note discussion above regarding competing bids for the 2014 NSS Convention. The board can chose to accept the Rolla bid for 2015 if it would prefer the convention be held in Huntsville in 2014.

I do not believe it is an issue that they went away mad, I believe there were some local issues that arose that impacted the backing of the bid

I just want to point out here that the Huntsville grotto is not the generator of the 2014 bid. Huntsville grotto members may be involved, but this bid was prepared by others in TAG.

Where is the Missouri School of Mines? It was University of Missouri-Rolla 30 years ago, and is now Missouri University of Science and Technology.

Was there a deadline for the decision for 2014 or 2015 as put into the resolution? It's hard to plan a convention if you don't know what year it is.

Huntsville it is . . .

Based on a post from NSS director Dean Wiseman on the 6/25/2012 TagNet, the NSS BOG voted to accept the Huntsville convention bid for 2014.
