Happy anniversary, NSS!

75 years ago today, the National Speleological Society was incorporated in Washington D.C.

This image is generally considered to be the first board meeting of the society. William J Stephenson, at the center of the photo, was the society's founder and first president.

The 2016 convention team looks forward to welcoming you to Nevada to celebrate 75 years of caving!

It was great having dinner with you, Scott, at that infamous "The Rack," there in Ely, NV. What a coincidence with your geocaching with Eileen and meeting up with you that Thursday evening, after the AV showing. :woohoo: Hope Julie has overcome her health issue by now. Not fun to be down like that.

Ernie - It was my pleasure to have your company! I loved "the rack" three times last week. Yumm! Julie is getting better now that we are in the "flatlands." Thanks again! :cavingrocks:

Looks like you had a great time, John. Thanks for sharing all of your photos. Wish you would have labeled more of them, as to where they were shot. See 'ya in New Mexico maybe.
