GrottoPicnic

  • Jun 14, 2014 · 3:00 PM
  • Home of Tom Brummel

This is our annual Grotto (cave club) Picnic.  It will have lots of merriment as well as great food, good drink (byob), an auction, hot tubs, hiking, bonfire and over night camping for those interested.  Sadly, there are no caves at this location, so we'll just be talking about caving.  We may have some ropes up for vertical training and practice (before beer of course).  The location is fantastic, but it's probably the last time we can host the picnic there, since the owner is selling the property.  A little note from the property owner, Tom (why he types in all caps, no one knows :-) )

KID FRIENDLY (FISHING AND GAMES,LOTS, ATV RIDES FOR SOBER DRIVERS.)ETC. THING TO DO.  CLIMBING WALL   BOND FIRE  COOK OUT AND CAMPING   FISHING, BOATING AND SWIMMING IN THE LAKE   TWO HOT TUBS.   AUCTION????????   SMALL FIREWORKS IN THE EVENING  STAR GAZING   BIKING, HIKING, AND RELAXING  OF COURSE DRINKING

We are asking for a $10 per person donation to offset costs from non-Grotto members (Grotto members, please RSVP via FB or Yahoo Groups).  Admission price includes $5 worth of scrip to be used towards the auction.  If you'd rather pay cash than PayPal, please just PM and we can do that too!

      I am, most folks in the Grotto have RSVP'd internally. I hope more folks from the meetup will come so we can have a kick-butt party!

  • Phil G.

    Common everyone, please RSVP! We want to have a great party but the RSVPs are coming in sooooo slooowly. This is an open invite to everyone on this Meetup. We won't be caving, but we'll be partying like cavers do!

  • Kim M.

    I'd like to come to this event since I don't know any of you, and I am a novice caver. Will some be willing to help me get a little education at the picnic?
