Excellent well done Sam
The last one you organized was a grand success as no dought this one will be.
Although Roy will be missed...
Wow we have lots of caves to showcase.. as indicated by the recent posts on UK Caving.... Exciting times......


Just a suggestion, how about recording the presentations and posting on YouTube at a later date. Much like the Royal Geological Society's Golden Age of Caving lectures.


Well-known member
A nice idea Pony - but I do know that some people who have agreed to do presentations only did so because they'll be in a small environment amongs folk they generally know faiirly well. They may be reluctant to be exposed to a wider audience, in a less controlled way. The same may apply to others who are yet to be invited to do a presentation.
