NCRC is offering a small party cave rescue class Gypsum, CO 10/12/2017 – 10/15/2017. This is a lot of fun and you can learn some great skills. More details: https://www.coloradogrotto.org/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2017/09/SPARflyerCO-1.pdf . Also, the grotto is offering two scholarships to cover half the cost of registration. Same rules as the 2014 NCRC scholarships to qualify…
