Hosted in 2005 by the Mendip Rescue Organization the 2005 conference will look at various aspects of cave rescue, with demonstrations and talks from other cave rescue organizations from around the UK.  Recent developments, new techniques & equipment, rescue practices, workshops etc., together with the ever-popular Rescue Race!

Many activities will be hands-on, and underground where practical. Delegates are expected from overseas and interested parties are welcome from all caving clubs and further afield.

The venue will effectively be a 'tented village' with conference facilities, bar and food available.

There will be a live band/stomp on the Saturday night.
