The December Grotto meeting and Christmas party will be
held on Saturday the 1st at Rushmore Cave. We will start
gathering about 6:00pm at the gift shop.
There will be socializing and caving in all parts of Rushmore
Cave. Bring friends, family, or anybody else that is interested in caving....
it should be a good time Come and join us!!
Our caving club typically meets the first Thursday of every month at Chute
Rooster Restaurant in Hill City, SD in the upstairs area at 6:30 p.m.
The Chute Rooster is located near the northern end
of Hill City along Highway 385, just past the Golden Spike Best Western
on the east side of the road
'Chute Rooster' is a full service restaurant and
bar, so you can eat before the meeting and enjoy a beer or cocktail during
the meeting, should you so desire. If you can't find us, mention the fact that
you are there for a caving meeting and the staff will steer you in the right
We begin each meeting with a presentation on caving (or any cave related
topic). These presentations can be extremely informative and enjoyable and
usually last for about 45 minutes. We then share trip reports from the
previous month and plan upcoming trips.
The meeting usually ends with a
short "business" meeting.
We occasionally change the meeting location and time, due to special events
or holiday conflicts. Any changes will be reflected on the events page!
