Pre-Registration Form (PDF) - Deadline 4/5/2007

Join the Texas Speleological Association and cavers from all over Texas for the 2007 TSA Spring Convention. The TSA, founded in 1956, has been bringing cavers from around Texas for 50 years.

The 2007 TSA Spring Convention April 13-15 will be in Albert, Texas at the historic Williams Creek School, built in 1897. Talks will be held in the original stone schoolroom and salons will be in the "new" section, added in dogtrot style in the 1950s.

Location MAP

The grounds are available for camping.

Albert is located just 6 miles south of Stonewall, on FM 1623. Stonewall is on Highway 290 about half-way between Fredericksburg and Johnson City.

In the vicinity: Luckenbach (Albert Luckenbach sold his store in Luckenbach, moved to Martinsburg, started a Post Office and renamed the town after himself, Albert, since there already was a Luckenbach); and the LBJ State Historic Park.

Dog lovers/dog owners, good news for you, dogs are welcome, although Gillespie County requires dogs be on leash and the school is owned by Gillespie County.

There will even be some parking for self-contained travel trailers and RVs.

Check here for more details as things develop.
