The board is still accepting nominations for the awards to be given this year
AND we are accepting nominations for 2 vacating positions on the PGI Board.
We are excited to have Dave Everton as the guest speaker for the evening who is a long time cave explorer in southern Indiana, and for the last several years has been the Project Coordinator of the Binkley Cave System exploration and survey effort which has resulted in doubling the mapped length of the system from 20 miles in 2007 to about 42 miles as of October, 2014. Binkley Cave is located south and southwest of Corydon in Harrison County in the southern Mitchell Plain, a classic karst landscape. Dave will briefly review the older first 20 miles, look at the recent next 20 miles, and then the last few miles which are a breakthrough into a new cave extension area, as well as the very recent dye traces which demonstrate that the various cave rivers discharge in various springs which are 4-8 miles away from the last mapped passage. This suggests that there could be well over 100 miles of passage, and possibly a multiple of that number. A part of the cave is readily accessible to the public and the recently opened Indiana Caverns, a commercial cave tour. There are significant number of Quaternary and possibly vertebrate fossils in that portion of the cave which are being excavated by the Indiana State Museum.
You can also give me (or anyone else on the PGI Board) your nominations for awards and/or Board positions.
