Our Social media news outlets...BCRA Caves and Karst online seminars
The seminar that was due to take place on Monday 12 July has been postponed and will hopefully be rescheduled. Apologies to those of you who tried to attend and couldnt log in. An update on the re-scheduling will be posted to our Facebook page as soon as possible.
The next of our monthly online seminars takes place on Monday 9 Aug 2021 at 19.30 BST. This series of talks takes place on the second Monday of each month, in support of the International Year of Caves and Karst (IYCK).
The August talk is "As Old as the Hills: The Chronology of Caves and Their Landscapes", with: Mike Simms from National Museums, Northern Ireland. For a summary, and for information on how to log in via Zoom, please go to http://bcra.org.uk/seminars2021.htmlHidden Earth 2021, cancelled
HIDDEN EARTH: the National Caving Conference. We are sorry to have to announce that due to the uncertainty caused by the Covid-19 pandemic this event, scheduled for September, has been cancelled. A major problem has been that many venues are still unwilling to take bookings for indoor public events, even to the end of 2021. Also, we do not know what meeting and travelling restrictions are likely to be in place in September and October. As it takes several months to organise Hidden Earth, we have now reached the point where it is necessary to make the decision to cancel. We have a venue in mind for 2022, which we will try to book as soon as we can.BCRA AGM and Science Symposium, November 2021
Last year's Science Symposium and AGM took place via Zoom. This year, we are hoping to organise a face-to-face meeting in Derbyshire, which we will also make available via Zoom. If this plan works out, you will be able to attend both the Science Symposium and AGM via Zoom if you cannot or do not want to travel to Derbyshire. We hope to finalise the details of this event soon.
