We have $662 in the treasury. We have added two new members: Rick and DeAuna Frey. Welcome aboard!
The weekend of 8 November, Rita Klimas, Tom White, and Betsy Simmers went as far back in as they could in Hamilton Cave, Franklin, WV and made it to the Airblower...next time through it!
Climbing and Rappelling Stuff
There are a couple of really good articles which have just come out in Caves.com, 7th Edition, Sep/Nov 2003, "The Magazine", concerning the use of a French Belay (an autoblock) when descending. I recommend this reading to everyone. If you need your harness altered as shown in Mike "Tiny" Manke's article, give me (Joedy) a call and I will be glad to sew it up on my industrial sewing machine or sew it by hand.
