REPORT

On a trip to Ruth Cave on Monday, July 29, cavers were working on a dig in the Cricket Room. They were bringing rocks down by tying webbing around them and pulling. Chris Brinker had one "watermelon sized" rock fall unexpectedly, narrowly missing his head. They aborted the dig at that point.
