UIS Commission on Karst Hydrogeology and Speleogenesis

This is the announcement of a Friends of Karst (FOK) meeting planned for this fall in Arkansas. Most of you are familiar with FOK meetings held every year at GSA. However, there is an older tradition of FOK meetings that consist of a few days of camping, talks, field trips, and caving. I was unaware of this tradition myself until a couple of years ago when Albert Ogden hosted such a meeting. To carry on this tradition of karst scientists gathering in an informal setting to share what we're working on and interact in the field, I am hosting a FOK meeting from September 17-21 near the Buffalo River in Arkansas. We have a fabulous location near the confluence of the Buffalo and Little Buffalo Rivers in the heart of one of Arkansas' best caving areas.  You can register at the following link, and will find more information there.
More information will follow later to those who register, but also feel free to ask me if you have any specific questions or think a critical piece of info is missing from the registration site. Due to the constraints of our meeting site, and a desire to keep the meeting small and encourage interaction, there are a limited number of spaces available. So sign up soon if you want to assure yourself a spot.
I am sure I have missed some folks I should have included in this invitation, so feel free to send it on to people you think would be interested.
