Every year cavers from Florida form a traditional gathering. This is for cavers young and old, experienced or inexperienced, in state or out, everyone is welcome. This year the Tampa Bay Grotto (T-Bag) hosted the “Fresh squeezed, premium, all natural Florida Cave Cavort during the final weekend of March.
Steve Adams and the entire Tampa Bay crew did a fantastic job organizing the event. Big thanks to Ray and Sharron Thornton who allowed Tampa Bay to use their beautiful property on the banks of the Withlacoochee River for three days. The weather was not particularly kind this year, but that did not put a damper on the festivities. There was good caving, kayaking, mountain biking, diving, hiking, food, camping, zip lining, tree climbing, and just hanging out. There was something for everyone. This year the band
151 Rocks played their hearts out at the Saturday bonfire.
Every year the Cavort gets better and better–in part due to activities, location, and fantastic planning. However, the comradery of cavers is what really makes it great. Thanks to everyone who came out for a great time.
