CLUBLIFEGoing 800 m deep without getting tired!  Avernus in the coal mines.
- Finally, a "board of directors" is chosen (Paul, Hugo, Annette, Marc), as it should be in every democratic club. Paul De Bie is elected president.
Ex-president Jacques leaves the club, taking a couple of his "oldies" with him, and starts a new club.  Very annoying is the fact that they call themselves "Avernus VZW", in a desperate attempt to try to pretend that nothing has happened....
The "real" SC Avernus is very relieved: finally no more conflicts, no more division.  We start with 17 members but even before the end of the year we already have 30!  The club is now financially healthy at last, we are very motivated and a great teamspirit is there as well. 

- In Belgium we must have turned every available cave inside out by now.  Some of us can't suppress their desire to find their "own" cave any longer and frantically we dig and work at several interesting locations... without results however.

- At the demand of the VVS we rig the entire caving circuit at the Berdorf rocks (Luxembourg), quite an undertaking (over 1 km of rope).

We really go for it this time, in France.  We go several times to the Doubs of course, where we bottom the deepest and biggest caves available (Montaigu (-385m), Pourpevelle, Verneau, Vauvougier), but we also head to the Vercors.  Besides some classic caves there, we participate in an expedition in the "Gouffre Berger".  It is one of the deepest (-1255 m), most beautiful and complete caves in the world.   Unfortunately the other group's ambitions aren't very high, so we "only" reach -705m.  Not bad for a bunch of "juniors". In the beautiful Pourpevelle (Frankrijk)
