Another Great MVOR!

Thanks to Peg and Chouteau Grottos for hosting a great Fall MVOR.  There was fun, socializing, and several great onsite caves!

The weather was great and the site was perfect!

 


At the Spring/Summer 2013 MVOR, a great caver received a great award.  Tony Schmitt was awarded the Lester B Dill Award.    Tony has contributed significantly to the MVOR region.    He has mapped caves in Arkansas.  Tony has significantly participated in the Carol Cave project from the earliest moments.  Tony helped discover, map, and now manages six miles of Paulter Cave in Illinois.  Tony is instrumental in the CRF operations in the Ozark National Scenic Riverways.

Tony has supported the Meramec Valley Grotto and the Illinois Spelelogical Association by volunteering and being members of their boards.

Congratulations to Tony Schmitt, a caver's caver, for earning this award.

 


The MVOR has been rescheduled for July 12-14.


A recently released study, shows that cave exploring has a positive economic impact.
