Be Safe!

Always tell someone where you are going...

You should always tell someone where you are going when you go underground. Convention is no exception.

All trip leaders are encouraged to download, fill out, and use the Caver Alert Information Sheet (CAIS) on all trips. Forms will also be printed out and available at Convention - check for one in your convention bag!

Cave Trips

Held Daily

Cave trips will be held throughout the week and posted here as they are announced. There will be guided cave trips and self-led cave trips. Trip leaders are encouraged to use the Caver Alert Information Sheet (CAIS) for every trip. The CAIS can be found in various locations at the campground, where most trips will leave from, and at Registration. (Did you notice the CAIS in your convention bag?)

All open caves will be listed in the guidebook. You’ll probably want to order one because it will be chock full of great information on the caves and many maps. If a cave is not listed in the guidebook, consider it closed for convention. Even if you “go to this cave all the time or at OTR,” if it’s not on the list of open caves, it’s closed. Don’t piss off the landowner by going anyhow.
