Only one week to go before the big event. :banana_yay: :banana: :banana_yay: :banana:

This year one of our grotto members has built a type of practice cave with electronic sensors on the "formations" and a home built computer to run it all. I checked it out two weekends ago with some of the CCRN instructors. This thing is cool and will be in use for others to check out come Saturday. Should make for a really fun and challenging obstacle coarse. it has the ability to time and score your crawl through the cave. Hope to see you there. :kewl:
