Update to questions by Danger Judy and Cavegirl

Caves of Huntsville trip is full at this time. Danger Judy collected the last spot by posting here.

Cavegirl - Plans for the bat workshop are not finalized at this time. Hopefully things will get sorted out within the next couple of weeks.

Will there be any meal plan this year? I don't see anything on the website.
Any opinions are personal.

Clarification. Breakfast will be sold at the campground. Lunch will be sold at the school. Julie has said the school only takes cash and checks. Will check about breakfast vendor but I'd suggest cash is always good.

See y'all there. I'm off to work. I will try to get info about paying for breakfast if I have time at work today.
