Anyone who has been enjoying our Team Sarah annual publication tracking the progress of survey, documentation and study of the cave on our Barbara Schomer Preserve will enjoy the forthcoming issue of the Karst Chronicle detailing work to get our latest lease ready for prime time. The next issue is a 28-page gem that has it all—a great cover photo, great trip reports, a great map, and most of all, a GREAT amount of work from a group of Virginia cavers to get this cave open to caving once again.
MAKC is doing a short fundraiser to raise money for this color cover. The fundraiser will run through October 15, 2023, so donate now!
Due to the rising cost of print media, primarily due to an increase in paper costs, this compilation will be a little more costly and push the limits of our budget. MAKC could easily address this cost increase by increasing dues. However, we want to continue to make our membership available to as many people as we can. We are an all-volunteer group, but we do have fees associated with owning properties. So we are seeking a little Support for the next issue.
All current members will receive this issue so join or renew now. Renew here.
