It has been discussed having each grotto host at least one larger presentation per year. These would be items of interest to the cavers statewide, and planned well in advance for scheduling purposes.

The topic is two fold:

Where can these presentations be held most effectively?

What presentations or topics are interesting enough to qualify?

Location ideas:

Library's in SL county or Utah county. We already have some connections that could be followed up on. Limiting factor is usually a hard cutoff time of having to be out before 9:00, which limits socializing and visiting afterward.

Anyone have connections to the Universities? Are there costs to using a small auditorium or large classroom?

Wasatch Grotto location in Bountiful. No set time limit as they have a key, but further north.

90th south in SLC has seemed to work ok as a somewhat central location between the Grotto's, are there places we could use in that area?





Presentation ideas that can draw a crowd: (especially if advertised well ahead of time.)

CAVE DIVERS -- presentations have proven to be a big draw each time.

MIKE LIBECKI -- Presenting for the public at Westminster on Feb 18th, has volunteered to present for us again. Has several different presentations, has drawn in crowd in the past. (below is the sales pitch on his scheduled presentation.)

Mike Libecki, explorer and mountaineer, travels to the most remote, exotic and untouched locations on the planet to pursue his passion of big wall and alpine first ascents, traverses, and other offbeat adventures, many of them completely alone. Libecki will take you to a few of the most remote areas on Earth in Venezuela, Island of Socotra in Yemen, and an 'around the world' segment from all the continents, that are home to some of the largest unclimbed granite walls on the planet. This is a show not to miss!

BAT SPECIALISTS, or other cave related agency presentations.
