Karst O Rama 2010

Postby SMGCaver » Feb 21, 2010 10:07 pm

The Greater Cincinnati Grotto invites you to attend the 2010 Karst-O-Rama on July 15th through 18th at the Great Saltpetre Cave Preserve in Mount Vernon, Kentucky

Karst-O-Rama weekend actually starts off on Thursday night with a welcome party at the shelter. This will be an opportunity to meet new friends and join up with old ones. About one third of KOR participants arrive by Thursday night so come early and join the fun.

Registration opens Thursday at 11 am and remains open till noon on Saturday.

While caving trips, both led and unled are still being considered for wild caves in the area, there will be educational seminars/cave trips in Great Saltpeter Cave.

Beginning Friday the kitchen will be open throughout the weekend for breakfast and lunch as well as dinner on Friday. Friday night will include a Howdy Party for checking out the crowd and meeting friends both old and new.

On Saturday morning, activities for the day include a photo contest, hayrides, hiking and a climbing contest. If the July temperatures becomes unbearable while shopping at the vendor section, the Crooked Creek swimming hole awaits complete with rope swing. The preserve includes several miles of hiking trails both on and off the property. For those that are shopping addicted, the preserve is only a few miles from the city of Berea with its many gift shops and antique malls.

As the evening approaches, there will be a banquet under the shelter followed by a caving program. Door prizes will be awarded prior to the program. If you want to stay up till all hours, there will be lots of activity in party camp in addition to the sauna and hot tub. The party will be starting at 9:30.

For those with leftover energy, there will be activities planned for Sunday as well.
