Subject: April 25 Binkley Cave Trip Report & Upcoming Dates

Greetings, cavers!

Recent Trip Report

· On April 25, three different groups of cavers went to three different locations. Unfortunately, it was not the most productive day for any of them. Here is a link to the trip report: http://files.hoosiercavers.com/Binkley/Binkley4-25-15.pdf.

Upcoming Trips: If anyone is planning a trip, please post it to the Yahoo group, and I will update the website calendar as well.

· This weekend May 9-10 will be the second annual TimFest in memory and honor of Tim McLain. The main Saturday work activity will be to reconfigure the Baelz entrance area; there may be other objectives as well. Free, primitive camping is available at the Rand-E-Vous Inn (Rand’s place) in Corydon. Please contact Rand Heazlitt or Laura Demarest for more information.

· May 23: I’m planning on doing a sketcher training trip with Joe Kinder. We could use at least one other person. Location yet to be determined.

Important Trip Planning News: If you wish to get the ‘internal’ e-messages, by which ISS members communicate with each other about trip planning, date availability, trip details, and all sorts of other stuff, you will need to be on the Indiana Speleological Survey Yahoo group. If you ALREADY get messages from the indiana-speleo-survey@yahoogroups.com e-mail account, then you are ON that list. That means you can also post to that list, by including the e-mail address indiana-speleo-survey@yahoogroups.com as a recipient of the message. If you do not get messages from that list, or are unsure if you are on it, but want to get those kind of trip planning messages, please contact me.

Other News

· I’ve been told that Gary Roberson’s latest book is out and available at Indiana Caverns, but don’t have any of the details yet.

· Webmaster Aaron Valandra has set up a trip report form which ISS members can fill out after cave trips; here is a link to the form: http://caves.org/survey/indianaspeleosurvey/trip_report
