The Alabama Cave Survey is holding our 2022 Annual meeting indoors at the NSS Headquarters on Saturday, April 16th at 9am Central Time. Everyone is welcome, though there are some requirements to join the ACS. Contact [email protected] for more information. Please social distance as you see fit. The meeting address is:
6001 Pulaski Pike NW
Huntsville, AL 35810
ANNUAL DUES OF $10 ARE DUE at the meeting, or you may pay ahead of time via our PayPal account:
We have a few very cool presentations lined up, but we’d love to hear about anything to do with Alabama caves and caving. So if you’d like to give a brief update on a recent ridgewalk or survey project or just a fun trip underground, let us know what you’ve been up to! Many of the new cave maps that were submitted this past year will be printed for display at the meeting.
We are producing only a limited number of ACS data thumb drives this year — all the usual files (and more) will be available online in the Member’s Section of the ACS website, which is:
Hope to see you there, Saturday April 16 at 9:00am CDT at the NSS Headquarters!
The 2021 Alabama Cave Survey Meeting will be held on Saturday, May 15th at 9:00am Central Time. We will meet under the outdoor pavilion at Cathedral Caverns State Park in Woodville, AL. Here’s a Google Maps link:
Annual dues of $10 will be due at the meeting. We will respect social distancing as best we can, you know the drill by now. Please bring a comfy chair to sit in.
After the meeting, at 1:00pm, our very own Milton Polsky will conduct a tour of the Caverns. He has arranged half-price tickets for us, $10 per person. This tour is well worth it!
We are still looking for a few good, short presentations on Alabama caves and caving at the meeting. Just notify us of what you need ahead of time if you’d like to participate. We can try a projector, but think about something to present that would work well in an outdoor setting.
See you soon!
Due to the recent concerns about the COVID-19 virus and social gatherings, the Board of Directors has chosen to postpone the upcoming Alabama Cave Survey meeting that was scheduled for April 4th, 2020. We WILL RESCHEDULE the meeting at a later date this year still To Be Determined, probably in the summer. Check the ACS website for future updates.
Your dues and website access will stay current until the next meeting happens, though you are welcome to pay your 2020 dues of $10 at any time. PayPal is best — send dues to [email protected]
As always, the ACS online database and website is up to date with the latest Alabama cave information, and your location corrections, maps, photos, and new reports are welcome any time of the year. We hope to have the usual annual set of cave files (including an updated GPX file) on the website by early April.
We all look forward to seeing everyone again soon, just a few months later down the road. Thank you for your understanding in these uncertain times. Meanwhile, let’s keep caving!
Please feel free to pass this info on to other ACS members. If you have further questions, email us at:
