2009 NSS Members Manual--Finally Out and an Apology

Postby merecaver » Dec 16, 2009 6:27 pm

Hi NSS,

I just got my 2009 NSS Members Manual today!! Yay!! I've been hearing of folks getting theirs for a day or two now.

I want to say that I am very sorry for leaving off the name of the photographer of the back cover photograph.

Bob Biddix, NSS 29501, took this beautiful photo.

Bob, I'm sorry.

The MM looks great Meredith! :kewl: :clap: :wtg:

I like all the misc. info, history, and figures -- makes for interesting reading and a good reference.

Thanks for all your (and your team's) hard work and dedication.

North central Indiana here and still waiting. I'm sure it will show up soon.

Received mine today in Delaware. Very nicely done, Meredith.

I did note that it was 2 mm taller then previous issues. I only noticed because it fit very tightly in the drawer slots of my desk while the older ones don't. How strange is that? 27.7 cm vs. 27.9 cm for the new one.

Mine came Monday and it appears to be worth the wait. Very well packaged and in excellent condition.
Good job.

Yes, the back cover of the Member's Manual was a Bob Biddix photo of HUGE cave pearls.

Bob Biddix fans (and I am one) will be happy to know that the forthcoming book on Blue Spring Cave in Tennessee will contain nearly 200 photos by Bob Biddix.
