Cave Rescue Confrence

The cave rescue confference in the mendip went well... i didnt make it down to any of the underground workshops but the debriefs were positive. There were lots of laughs and such... on saturday night, sunday morning especially. The rescue race was a sight to behold especially when a dam was broken upstream from where the rescuers were crawling through a shallow muddy river, if you were the casualty i think you would have suffered more injuries from your evacuation than the original accident... the pig roast was really nice and the bands were great...

I don't recall seeing anyone hobbling around on crutches so you must have recovered well from your own incident!

Looks like it could almost have been re-named the "2005 Rescued Caver Conference". :D

CUCC Paul - black hair, sitting down mostly. I think you're on one of my photos somewhere.
