SSS hosts several activities over the year to get members together for social gatherings these activities are the Christmas and Winter BBQ's and the Annual Dinner
The Christmas BBQ held in December each year is our "official" Christmas Party it is usually held on Saturdays at member's homes in the West of Sydney at the foot of the Blue Mountains.
Held in April or May the Winter BBQ is usually held at Emu Plains, west of Sydney.
Although some food, and soft drinks are served at the BBQ's visitors are expected to bring their own meat and drink. These evenings serve as purely social events but visitors usually show caving slides and videos. On the Sunday following the BBQ event some members alway go bush walking in The Blue Mountains.
The Annual Dinner of The Sydney Speleological Society is the most formal event in the society's calendar. This is an occasion when old members and friends of the society gather with the active membership to talk about caving, renew old acquaintances, hand out certificates of appreciation for exceptional work done within the Society and last but not least enjoy an interesting talk about one of the many specialist fields of speleology. A three-course dinner is served with soft drinks, tea and coffee. The society also arranges a raffle with great prizes!
