National Speleological Society Annual Convention

The National Speleological Society Annual Convention is June 25-29th in Lewisburg, West Virginia. The theme of this year's event is Mayacon--referring to the infamous predictions that 2012 will be the end of the year according to some interpretations of the Mayan calendar. I think I will be in China (or just about to leave) so I don't think I'll make this year's meetings. However, I urge anyone interested in caves or caving to attend to enjoy all that there is to enjoy about these kinds of events. It certainly one of the most unusual conventions you will ever attend.
