CLUBLIFEDancing around, somewhere in the Meuse
- For the second time, we organize a slide-show, attracting over 300 spectators!

- 46 activities in Belgium, and 22 different foreign caves.

- The number of members still goes down: 15 left...

BELGIUM
- An historical find: we discover a small resurgence in the Bretaye massif.  Besides the spring is a small and ventilated hole, where we dig 10 weekends in a row.  It only yields 17 m. of cave, but who could know that in the coming years this would become one of the biggest Belgian discoveries ever?

- We start an impossible dig in the Chawresse, which will take another 6 years before it reveals its secrets!

- Despite all those dozens of days of intense digging, the results are practically zero and we are really discouraged.  Finding caves doesn't seem to be Avalon's strongest point. 

FOREIGN CAVES
- The familiar french caving regions are again visited.  We go to the Meuse, and return to the Causses as well, where we make a memorable 16 hour trip in the 360m deep Combe Albert.Ready for our toughest walk to a cave: a 1000 m. climb to a -1150m deep cave: Systema Badalona

- In one week of time, we do two through-trips in the Systema Badalona (B1-B15) in the National Park of Ordesa (Spain).  At that time, it was the deepest through-trip in the world; -1150 m deep!  The cave is a revelation, one of the most beautiful river caves ever visited. 

- We also bottom the Couey Lotge (-625m), in the French Pyrenees (Massif of Pierre-St.Martin); and visit the famous ice-cave "Grotte Casteret" in the Cirque de Gavarnie. 

In short: we are in the shapes of our lives!
