southport chronic cavers grotto
"Every year gets better as I see it with the grotto, 10 years old, still growing, many important projects accomplished, caves owned and managed, awards won, caves mapped, and much more. The whole key is our members, some of the best cavers I know!" - Buddy Baldwin

Join us


Membership is open to anyone who shares the same interest and concern for caves as the grotto and our parent organization, the National Speleological Society. Advantages of membership include our periodic newsletter, access to grotto equipment and library, participation in our email discussion group, fellowship with some nice (and good-looking!) people, and good fun.

Dues, which are collected in January and cover your membership for a year, are $10 for a single membership, or $15 for a family. Just print an application and bring it and your dues to the next meeting, or mail it and a check for your dues to Robert Sewell, grotto treasurer. Email him at for his snail-mail address.

And hey, who wouldn't be proud to be a 'Porter, and wear this T-shirt?   Not a real SCCG T-shirt (yet)
