November 1983...

Omhoog/Up Next

Futur chief of the gang, Paul De Bie, somewhere in Trou d'Haquin.CLUBLIFE
- November 1983: an Antwerp caving club named "Avernus" is born.  It joins the "Arbeiders Toeristen Bond", a socialist organisation that groups essentially walking and hiking clubs, but also a few caving clubs.

- Founder and chairman of the new club is Jacques G.  

- Very soon, the club counts 13 members.


- The young lions, such as Paul De Bie, Marc Verhaert and Marc Cools quickly acquire a lot of caving skills and rope-techniques, and every week some Belgian cave is visited.  Soon the caving skills of these young guys are better than those of the "old" members of the club....  which results in some slight friction between them.
