I wanted to let everyone know that the NSS Western Regional is happening in just under 3 weeks. The regional is being held on 20+ acres of caver-owned property just outside Joshua Tree National Park in Southern California. There will be events including:
Trips to caves just 5 miles away
Off-road tour of the Gold mining district in the area
A traditional miner's rock drilling contest
Website and registration link:http://www.westernregional2015.org
Folks are encouraged to show up early (we may put you to work) and camping is free and available on-site. Cost for the event is $20, or $45 with the meal plan (Friday night - Sunday morning).
Desert Dog Troglodytes Grotto
We are also doing a hands-on cave gating workshop. Please contact us to RSVP if you are planning to work on a gating project soon and really need to reserve a space.
