There hasn't been much use on this page as there aren't many who use Google+.  There is some thought that we may shut this page down for lack of use.

Our January 10th meeting is an important one. We'll be electing officers for 2016 and discussing the future of the grotto. We need a good turnout of members at this meeting.

Dues for 2016 are due on December 31st. See our web page for renewal information.

For those who need to renew DUG dues for 2015, I will be able to take care of that at tonight's Christmas party.  I'll even have a membership card for you (the first in many years).

2015 WORMFEST ALERT!! I told chairman Pam that I would head up the 2015 Wormfest. Right now, early planning is being done and nothing is set in stone. The date and location is being worked on as well. I'm looking for DUGsters who would like to take on specific tasks on the Wormfest Committee:

- Registration
- Cave Trip Coordinator
- Wormfeast
- Events and Contests
- Raffle
- T-shirt
- Guidebook

This will likely be a scaled down Wormfest so that we can ease back into it (after all, we don't have 100+ members anymore).
If anyone is interested, see me at the Christmas party this Saturday and we can talk about it.
