The National Cave Rescue Commission
I am pleased to announce that the official invitation from the Hungarian Caving Instructor Committee has arrived! The NCRC/HCIC Instructor Exchange program is now in its second year, and I am coordinating the attendance of one or two NCRC instructors at the HCIC training in Hungary. Even more exciting is that many of you met Dénes Nagy, HCIC Instructor, at the recent NCRC National Weeklong and he will be the lead instructor for the HCIC courses. Having been the first exchange instructor, I can personally say the trip and the course is an amazing experience. The experience and knowledge gained from a very technical and proficiently run course, combined with caving in Hungary and Slovakia in beautiful vertical caves is phenomenal. And since the course is free, and the Hungarians being excellent hosts, there is no downside except the vacation time and the cost of the flight.
You'll find attached a copy of the invitation with all the basic details. You'll also find attached a copy of my report from 2015 with a Summary on the first page, and extensive details on the remaining pages.
