"Murder Hole Cave" -- Preserving Cave History for Future Generations
Presented by: Marian McConnell and David Socky
March 23rd at 9:00 PM EDT
Videographer David Socky and author Marian McConnell talk about the Murder Hole Cave movie and book as an example of preserving cave history for future generations. This infamous cave in Catawba, Virginia is now the subject of the book and a movie documentary, both of which educate (and entertain) the public about cave safety, conservation, and lessons learned from the past. Stories, artwork, photographs, and music, as well as more modern tools such as drones, helmet-mounted cameras, and video were used to preserve the history of this significant cave. As McConnell likes to say, "Someday when my ashes are strewn into the Murder Hole daylight cave; the new owner and visitors will have an 'owner's manual' about this very special place."
Marian, landowner of Murder Hole Cave, is an Author, artist, musician, and caver. She has written songs about caving (including "Legends of Murder Hole" on the video), painted and drawn pictures of it, written the "Murder Hole" book, and now, with David Socky, created the movie, "Murder Hole Cave"
David has been actively caving since 1974. He has caved throughout the U.S., Puerto Rico, Mexico, Belize, and China. In the late 1980's he got into doing cave videography and since then has produced a good number of programs – mainly about caving and mountain climbing.
