THE TEXAS CAVER, SEPTEMBER, 1965 PAGE 169 DEEP WHAT WAS DESCRIBED BY MANY PERSONS IN THE TEXAS SPELEOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION AS A NEW ERA, OR NEW STANDARD AS FAR AS REGION PROJECTS GO, SEEMS TO HAVE BEGUN WITH "PROJECT DEEP". THE Nos.s. TEXAS REGION HAS BEEN HOLDING ANNUAL REGIONAL PROJEcTs SINCE THE FORST WAS HELD AT LONGHORN CAVERNS IN 1956. IN THAT YEAR ABOUT 40 PERSONS EXPLORED AND MAPPED !N THE CAVE, WHICH IS A STATE PARK. THE SECOND YEAR ANOTHER PROJECT WAS HELD AT LONGHORNo SINCE THEN REGIONS PROJECTS, AS SUCH, IN TEXAS HAVE BEEN MORE OR LESS ORGINIZED TO HAVE A PLACE FOR CAVERS TO MEET, DO SOME MAPPING OF A LARGE CAVE, SEARCH FOR CAVES IN A GIVEN AREA, AND USUALLY HOLD A BOARD Of GqJERNORS MEETONG0 ONE OR TWO PERSONS TOOK IT UPON THEMSELVES TO DO SOME QF CAVE FAUNA oR To MAKE soME KIND oF PALEO STUDY. To DATE, No REGION COME U P WITH A FOLLOW-UP FULl REPORT OR PUBLISHED AN WHEN THE PRO.OECTS WERE OVERt THE LEFT :oR HOME FEELING SATISFIED AND R EFRESHED. BUT OTHER T"AN A FLEETING QUESTION AS TO 11WHAT BECAME OF THE MAP?" OR 1101 D ANYONE Fl NO OUT WHAT HAPPENED TO THE CRAWLWAY1", AND A REPORT SUCH AS THIS O N THE TEXAS CAVER, NO REAL FOLLOWUP WORK, OR FULL REPORT HAS EVER BEEN ATTEMPED. LAST APfU.;tJtltEE GOOD SUGGESTIONS FOR A REGION PROJECT Sl TE WERE PUT BEFORE THE GENERAL eusiNESS SESSION AT THE TSA CONVENTION IN SAN ANGELO. ENDLESS CAVE, NEW MEXDC09 OFFERED THE LARGEST CAVE; BUT DEEP CAVE SEEMED TO OFFER THE MOST GNTEREST AT THE TIME. VERV FEW HAD BEEN TO IT AND FUTHERMORE IT OFFERED A CHALL ENGE. WHAT KIND OF CHALLENGE IT OFFERED WAS NOT CLEAR, BUT AT LEAST IT WAS WITHIN FAIRLY GOOD DRIVING DISTANCE, AND HAD VOLUNTEERS TO HOST AND F'IL.AN IT. A NEW ERA? PERHAPS. IT WAS A FIRST FOR SEVERAL REASONS: FIRST, A TEMPORARY LATRINE WOMEN IN A DESERT LAND; SECOND, ALMOST ALL PHASES OF SPELEOLOGICAL WORK ATTEMPED; THIRD, PROVISIONS FOR RECORDS TO BE KEPT ON NEARLY EVERY EFFORT AND SEGMENT OF THE PROJECT; AND ALL THIS DOES NOT SIGNIFY THAT THE PROJECT WAS "HDGHLY" SUCCESSFUL, BUT IT SHOULD OFFER A CHANCE FOR HIGHER PROJECT STANDARDS TO BE SHOT AT. iN THE FUTURE, MAYBE, TSA PROJECT PLANNERS AT L EAST AIM AT A HIGHER STANDARD. WE WILL SEE HOW 11DEEP11 COMES OUT. A GROUP OF EARLY ARRIVALS INCLUDING GEORGE AND JACQUE GRAY, fERN DAVIS, MARGDE Bovo, DoN WONKLEs, ToM MEADoR, JoN VINSON, AND SIDNEY CoNNER BEGAN SETT iNG UP THE HIGH WINDS, ALONG WITH A TOUCH OF RAIN, KEPT THE TWO LARGE PARACHUTES FROM BEIN$"fRAISED UNTIL SuNDAY. HoWEVER THE HQ TENT, LATRINE SCREENS, ANo F i RST A1o TENT wERE AL: To Go BEFoRE suNsET oN FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER J. THE SURFACE PHONE WIRE HAD BEEN STRUNG EARLIER FROM DEEP ENTRANCE TO THE CAMPSITE B V MEADOR AND OTHERS. BY 8:00PM, TWENTY FIVE PERSONS HAD REGISTERED. PEOPLE ARRIVED DURING ALL HOURS OF THE NIGHT fRIDAY AND EARLY SATURDAY MORNING. PROSPECTS OF A GOOD ATTENDANCE LOOKED GOOD, AND BY MIDNIGHT SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 100 PERSONS REGISTERED. MEANWHILE EARLY SATURDAY MORNING THINGS BEGAN TO HAPPEN. METEOROLOGICAL RECORDING INSTRUMENTS WERE PLACED AT DEEP CAVE, BLOWHOLE CAVE, AND THE SURFACE. A MAPPING TEAM LED BV ROBERT SCHROEDER ENTERED TO MAP THE EAST CHASM AREA AROUND 9&00 AM, AND ANOTHER SHORTLY AFTERWARD WENT TO THE AREA BEYOND THE CRYSTAL FLOWSTONE LED BY PETE LINDSLEY. EUGENE BLUM OF AUSTIN LED ANOTHER SURVEY TEAM IN THE MAIN PASSAGE FROM THE FIRST TELEPHONE, AND WAS TO MAP A FEW OF THE SIDE PASSAGES. BILL RUSSELL, SHARON WIGGINS AND OTHERS FROM AUSTIN TACKLED BLOWHOLE CAVE WITH MAPPING GEAR, COMING UP LATER WITH A SUM OF 200 FEET OF MAPPED CAVE0
