[/quote]SERA Cave Carnival (Is this open to all NSS members?) & Speleofest... :kewl:

Should I be concerned about registering just yet? :doh:[/quote]

Most (if not all) local and regional events are open to non NSS members but a slightly higher registration fee may be charged for non members. Pre-registration will get you a small discount and ensure a banquet ticket, t-shirt, ect. and will save time when you get there but is not necessary.

regarding SERA Cave Carnival

Postby mgmills » Jan 8, 2006 9:35 pm

SERA Cave Carnival is really the SouthEastern Regional Association Cave Carnival.

Each year the event is hosted by a different grotto in the Southeastern Region. Since I have been attending (1995) the event has been held anytime from early May until late July.

Generally for this event there is no cost difference for NSS members vs non-members. The reason for this is to encourage attendance becaue the event is actually a regional fundraiser. $1.50 per attendee is given back to the region to provide money for the region to operate.

In contrast some events occur at the same time each year and are always hosted by the same group.

If I am correct, you do not even have to be a NSS member to attend a SERA event, but you do at TAG. The NSS has their both set up at SERA and non-members can join during SERA's and TAG.
