On July 31, 2009, guests Mark and Steven Howell and Philip Fucaloro, claimed the grand prize. This was the Howells' third stay at ArdPark Cabins. Excited and determined to win the contest, the guys took off for a great hike in the national forest and came back winners. For their dedicated effort, the Howells received a gift certificate worth 2 nights for 6 guests at the cabin of their choice, 6 ArdPark t-shirts, 2 Cabela's Mini Multi Tools and a $30 Bass Pro gift card. Great job Steven, Mark and Philip!! The cave contest is not all Steven and Mark won. A stray kitten appeared at the All American during the Howell's cabin visit. Much to Steven's happiness and surprise, mom and dad later agreed to give the kitten a new home. Steven named the little girl "Yo Yo" and she became part of their family on August 7, 2009.

On October 23, 2009, guests Judy Haase and Doug Baldus, accompanied by their 5 anxious dogs, embarked on an afternoon hike in the Mark Twain National Forest in search of the cave. This was Doug and Judy's first stay at
The Pines cabin but they are not strangers to ArdPark. They have twice enjoyed the privacy and riverfront beauty camping at the Courtois Cabana. Judy was very excited to go find the cave and she and Doug did just that. Doug said Judy made all the right decisions about which paths to take (but we're not supposed to let her know that)! How impressed we were to receive news that their mission was successful on their first try! In addition to having a wonderful time, Doug and Judy claimed a $50 ArdPark gift certificate, a $10 Bass Pro gift card and a Cabela's Mini Multi Tool.

Close Up of the Cave Entrance
Official Notice at Cave Entrance
On May 12, 2012, Caleb Hunter, and his sister and brother-in-law, Jessica and Dan O'Gorman, proudly broke the 2 year stalemate and found that cave! Caleb and his wife, Mary, returned to ArdPark this year with family and friends to celebrate their 5 year wedding anniversary. In 2011, Caleb, Mary, and their young son, Caleb, Jr., searched for the cave but their short journey was unsuccessful. Caleb, Jr. was just too tired to continue. To the contrary this year, with the little guy at home, the group of 8 set out on their quest early Saturday morning. While most of the gang gave up early and returned to the All American cabin, Caleb, Jessica, Dan, and their respective dogs, Mack and Henry, pursued and conquered! It took about 2½ hours to accomplish their mission, Caleb said. An awesome time was had by all on their hike in the Mark Twain National Forest. Caleb sent us some great pictures, including a close up of the cave entrance and the official notice that resides there. These might help make it easier for our future cave lookers! For their fun and effort, Caleb, Jessica and Dan won a $50 ArdPark gift certificate and a $10 Bass Pro gift card. Wonder how they will split their prize? Congratulations Caleb, Jessica and Dan!!
