On the second Thursday of Jan., Mar., May, July, Sept., and Nov., the DC Grotto holds its regular meeting at the Chevy Chase Community Center, just inside DC, on Connecticut Ave., starting at 7:30pm. There will be trip reports, announcements of upcoming trips and events, discussion of various caving related matters, and usually a presentation or some other program. See the DCG Main-Page for the next specific date and program. The meeting is informal, you don't need to be a Grotto member to attend, and everyone is welcome.
There is usually an (optional) pre-meeting dinner at a nearby restaurant. Which one is announced on the DCG Main-Page. Arrive about 6:15pm if you want dinner; later is fine if you just want a beverage.
