Hosted by Gem State Grotto

Labor Day weekend (Fri. Aug. 29th - Mon. Sept. 1st)
Lincoln County Fairgrounds
405 E. Rail St, Shoshone, ID






The Regional will be located in Magic Valley's rich lava tube caving area in Gooding and Shoshone Idaho. There are 40-50 caves within an hours drive of Shoshone including several excellent gated permit caves.





We will be camping on a portion of the Lincoln County Fairgrounds in the city of Shoshone, Idaho. It is a park-like setting with grass and a baseball field. There are bathrooms and showers are free! A technical session and spaghetti dinner will occur in Saturday night. Cook stoves are welcome and a local market and gas station is under 2 miles away. Registration of $20 per person can be on-site or in advance. RV and electrical hookups are an additional $20/day.



Lisa Bauman is releasing a 2nd edition reprint of the 2014 EWLS Guidebook & Magazine that was used a month before during the organization's annual event. It is full-color and filled with pictures and maps of 10 popular Magic Valley area caves. This second edition will include new pictures and updated content. It also includes bios of 9 women cavers as part of the publication's annual tradition.
