Bring a Friend Caving
The one-day Bring A Friend event has been occurring in late winter or early spring for several years. It is a chance for club members to invite an inexperienced friend or two to try caving in Rat's Nest Cave near Canmore. This cave requires a moderate level of physical fitness, but no prior experience or special knowledge - just a positive attitude, tolerance for getting tired and dirty, and a willingness to try something different. There is no charge for this event; access to the cave is provided to the A.S.S. courtesy of Canmore Caverns. Members are generally responsible for ensuring their guests are properly equipped for caving, but equipment may also be rented from the U of C outdoors program, outdoor supply shops, or Canmore Caverns.
The next bring a friend event will be February 23rd and 24th, 2013. You will find some photos of previous Bring A Friend events in our Gallery.
