CLUBLIFEThe Ladies in action (Annette and Michaëla)
- 17 of the 23 members of the club join the Flemish Caving Federation.  The "oldies", including chairman Jacques G., refuse to follow and stay with the ATB.  The members demand democracy:  everything is now in the hands of one person: finances, gear, library, and decision-making.  We want official club-rules, and a board of directors.  All this results in a lot of frustration and 1985 is not a very happy year. 

- Some members become very obsessed with cave-photography.  Paul is one of them.

- We try to maintain a high level of caving: unforgettable memories of the first Chawresse-Veronika through-trip, the "Number Two" in Trou Bernard, nightly visits to the Grotte Lucienne (which is situated in the roof of a - forbidden - railway tunnel).

- And even in those early years of caving, we already care about our caves and organize cleaning actions, e.g. in Trou Maulin.

- And yes: now and them we even dig in caves, looking for THE biggest discovery of all times. A historical document: our very first dig!

- In France, we go caving in the Meuse (Rupt du Puits, Beva caves). And hardly 1,5 year after the foundation of the club and the beginning of our caving careers, we already feel capable to go on a 3 week stay in the French Doubs where we bottom 18 vertical caves (such as Bief-Boussets, Baume des Crêtes, Legarde) and break our "depth record" (+/- 230m).
