(Yes, it's another last-minute announcement..!) :banana:

The Central Connecticut Grotto will host the 2007 Fall NRO at Privacy Campground in Hancock, Massachusetts on the weekend of September 14-16. All cavers and friends are welcome.

This NRO will feature cave trips, vendors, the Northeastern Cave Conservancy auction, the NRO business meeting, and a 2010 NSS Convention planning meeting. Vermont Cavers Association will prepare a bountiful Italian feast (with vegetarian option) for Saturday dinner, and Uncle Steve will provide Saturday and Sunday breakfasts. A small charge for each meal will apply, and please bring your own folding chairs.

Campground features include a kids playground, bonfire, hiking trails, a waterfall, and a local karst area (with potential digs). A windmill tower will be available for vertical ropework. A sauna will run Friday and Saturday nights if there is enough interest. There is a pond suitable for swimming, and rowboats and paddle boats are available for rental. Volleyball courts are also open. The campground owner has offered to give tours of his underground bomb shelter and hydro-electric plant.

All attendees please pay at the NRO registration tent upon arrival, by either cash or check. The NRO basic fee for this event is $5 per adult and $3 per child under 14, whether you are camping or just visiting for the day. Campground rates (per night) are an additional $6 per adult and $3 per child for tent camping, payable at registration. Please note that no dogs are allowed in the campground.

Privacy Campground is located on Massachusetts Route 43 (Hancock Road), 5 miles south of the junction with US Route 7. The approximate coordinates are 42.6083°N, 73.2883°W.
