Now that Bill has scratched the surface, propped the door open and given a
little history of the TSA from Carl's book, I'll pose a question that has been
bouncing around my very small brain for quite a while:
Is the TSA still relevant, needed, or necessary anymore?
Having served as Youth Caving Contact (could someone please remove my Contact
Info for this from the website?!), Secretary, Texas Caver editor, and
Chairperson, it just seems that the TSA was more involved, active, and vibrant
in past years than it has been of late.
(This is in NO way a request for someone to nominate me for something. Been
there, done that, did my turn in the barrel, and have the scars, bruises, and
piles of verbal and email abuse to show for it).
Just something for y'all to mull over. Maybe consider merging with the TCMA,
except they both have different reasons for existing, but, the TCMA seems to be
more active lately. Just saying.
Anyway, I'll go back to "lurk mode" now. I don't go caving as much as I did in
the past and, when I do, it's with my family and a few close caver friends on
some special projects and trips.
Nota TSA or NSS member currently, just throwing out a bone for you to chew on,
so don't flame me!

Subject: [Texascavers] Texas as an NSS region
However, the Texans, now called the Texas Speleological Association, continued
to be a region of the NSS.
Now it too is run by elected people, to the extent that it is (anybody seen a
Texas Caver this year?). -- Mixon
