BCRA Cave Technology Symposium - New Date

*** change of date from that previously announced ***

BCRA's Cave Technology Symposium will be held in the vicinity of Priddy, Somerset, over the weekend of 9th/10th June 2012. As a companion to the Cave Science Symposium, this event concentrates on areas of cave technology including, but not limited to, lighting, photography and video, cave radio and other forms of communications, surveying, data logging, explosives, electronics, radio location, and rescue.

With the growing popularity of the Cave Technology Symposium, now in its sixth year, we have decided to extend the event from one to two days to provide opportunity for practical demonstrations in addition to talks. The practical sessions will take place on Saturday 9th June and the formal presentations will be on Sunday 10th June. Admission is free to BCRA members and speakers or GBP 3.00 for non-members for either or both days.

Since the venue(s) for the practical sessions will depend on what demonstrations are offered, if you would like to attend, please contact the Lecture Secretary, Mike Bedford, who will provide you with details closer to the date. On the Sunday we will meet at the Hunter's Lodge pub, Priddy (postcode BA5 3AR) at 9:00 and will finish at 16:00. Coffee and tea will be provided at nominal cost and meals are available in the pub at lunch time. Accommodation has been reserved at the nearby Wessex Caving club (postcode BA5 3AX) for the Friday and Saturday nights. If you'd like to book accommodation, please contact Allan Richardson at a.richardson@bcra.org.uk .

For further information or to offer a talk, poster presentation or practical demonstration, please contact the Lecture Secretary, Mike Bedford, at BedfordMD@aol.com .

If you haven't already done so, you might also like to consider subscribing to the mailing list for the Technology Symposium - see http://list.bcra.org.uk - or check the CREG forum, http://bcra.org.uk/cregf for further announcements.

Please note that the dates referred to in this announcement replace the earlier advised dates in April.
