Directions: Take Old Sewanee Road and make a RIGHT onto Wild Heart Lane. The house is on the RIGHT before you get to the campground (Caver's Paradise). Dinner theme TBD. The potluck dinner will start at 6pm central, followed by the business at 7pm. The presentation will be Jennifer Pinkley and she will be discussing Fern Cave. ****************************************************************** On the day of the June Grotto Meeting (June 13), there will be a ROPES COURSE set up nearby at Caver's Paradise for those interested in learning basic vertical skills and/or practicing change overs. You will have the opportunity to also learn how to pass re belays in a tree and practice a J rappel. If you have your own vertical gear, please bring it. Bring water and I also suggest bringing a lunch and a camp chair. If you have any loaner gear you can bring that would be great as well as there will be folks who would like to try out different systems. The ropes course is set up at Caver's Paradise near the hot tub & sauna area. It will begin around 10am cst and end at 5pm cst. We may consider taking those who successfully show enough vertical skills and have an interest to Cagle's on Sunday. Cagle's is located in South Pittsburg and is 186 feet deep. This trip will be limited to 12 and will be available first to those who take the ropes course.
