Forwarded Message from Front Royal Grotto:
The April 1 preregistration deadline is quickly approaching, so if you haven't preregistered, you still have time. Shake off the cabin fever and join us at Spring VAR 2007. If it's your first visit to the Durbin, WV area, you will discover the true inspiration for the songs of John Denver.
We have a fun filled weekend planned with cave trips beginning Friday afternoon for early arrivals. In addition to abundant caving opportunities, there will be awesome hiking/biking trails and a list of area attractions.
Another feature offered for this VAR is a t-shirt with artwork designed by Paul Gaskins. Paul has generously donated the original art which will be raffled Sunday morning as a fundraiser for Eight Rivers Safe Development,
