North East Social. Place & Time TBD
Missouri Social 12 July, at Roubidoux
We will be gathering once again in person to celebrate another year of on-line harmony! The Rendezvous allows us the space to cook and gather and is located right on the river with a pontoon boat (water Taxi) available to us. Lodging is available there, Dive Outpost, Bill R’s, Cindy’s Motel, just to name a few in the immediate area. Peacock and Little River are very close by for cave diving. And of course Ginnie Springs who did so much for us last year. We will provide recognition and acknowledgement for any money or equipment donated for food and raffles.
The events and donations are starting to come in and to be posted here on this page. Looks like we have something going on every day of the 3 day weekend. Very special thanks to all the cave diving businesses and organizations that are helping to make this social a success (see below for the list).
