Fall Virginia Region Meeting
The Virginia Region of the NSS (VAR) is a group of grottos in DC, MD,
VA, and WV. The VAR hosts a regional meeting each spring and fall in
various locations and there are usually 150-200 caves in attendance.
There are led and self-guided trips to local caves, a dinner on
Saturday evening, a party on Saturday night, and an optional business
meeting on Sunday morning. The VAR meets are a great way to see some
new caves and meet other cavers. More information, and a link for on-line registration, is available here.
