CLUBLIFEThe "cork screw", in our very first discovery in the Neptune caves
- Avalon finally has its own clubhouse in Deurne.

- Avalon's first slide-and movie show attracts 300 visitors!

- We count 48 Belgian activities and visit 16 different foreign caves.

- YES: our very first discovery (at last): 100 m of virgin passage in de Caves of Neptunus (showcave) that we baptize "Réseau du Tire-Bouchon"!

- We continue digging as hell, but still without a lot of luck.  We discover a small cave, the 50 m "Trou du Blaireau Mort", and we dig for many a weekend in a sinkhole in the  Ry de Vesce, but without results.   

Canyoning in Bask country: Marc, Michaëla, Kris, Rudi (standing up), Paul, Marc (sitting)FOREIGN CAVING
- We go caving in the French Côte d'Or, and again in the Causses (the unforgettable through-trip in Pas Destrech), and in the Doubs (Chauveroche, Pourpevelle, Sarrazine).

- Three weeks in de Pyrenees (Pierre-St. Martin), worth remembering as well.. Avalon cracks some very hard nuts there: Lonné Peyret (-707 m, a 26 hour trip), Aphanicé (-500 m with a 328m free drop!) but especially the 1000m deep through-trip of the famous Pierre-St-Martin cave. We also go down some canyons as well.
