Three Caves Panorama By Cathie Mayne

Three Caves Panorama By Cathie Mayne

This meeting is scheduled for 6:00 – 8:00 PM on May 19, 2015 and will be held at the Land Trust of North Alabama’s Three Caves site.

The meeting is still in the planning stage, but here’s what we’ve got so far:

From our host, Cathie Mayne:

I’ll have a map for the website and for email.  Our parking lot is now an open trailhead.  The walk down to the bowl (app. 125 yards) is not very handicapped friendly so we’ll need a little disclaimer about letting me know if someone needs to be driven into the bowl.  Also will remind folks to wear comfortable closed toe shoes due to gravel.

Seating: Bring your own bag chair.

Dinner: My friend Susan at Honeybaked Ham will prepare a URL for everyone to order whatever they like (Watch this space–the link is coming soon!).  She and I may set a menu (including vegetarian options) and I’ll pick up the food and have it ready in the bowl.  Payment?  I’ll have to ask Susan if we can also have everyone pay her.  Everyone could bring their own food, but we’ve learned that schlepping a bag chair and a cooler down to the bowl isn’t that much fun.

Drinks: I’ll have water.  BYO cokes, wine, beer. Please remember to drink responsibly!
