It is always a sad time when we lose a beloved member of our caving family.
The Memorial Garden on the TRA property is a quiet area where we can go to reflect on the memories of our ​OTR ​loved ones that have passed away.

Each year, ​Thursday night of OTR, there is a ceremony that recognizes those within our caving family that have passed away since we last gathered. It is a time that stories are shared, hugs are given, and recognition is provided to those that left us behind to carry on their memory.

Located in the Memorial Garden are several plaques that contain the names of our​​ ​caving family ​OTR attendees​ ​that have passed away. If you would like to have a name placed on the plaque in the Memorial Garden, please contact Mike Oatney at ( make arrangements.​
