- 65 activities in Belgium, 20 foreign caves.

-A couple of "young wolves" (Mark, Michel...) join the club.

- We finish the work in the Grotte aux Contrastes.

- 18 weekends of very hard labour in Trou Weron and Chantoir Dellieux yield 600 m. of virgin passages; the "Réseau Nord".  The climax is the junction between the two caves that we establish in september and which creates one big cave: the Weron-Dellieux System, over 3000 m. 

- A flash flood blocks two of our team in the Chantoir Dellieux.  The "rescue" mobilizes a lot of people, and (without wanting it) we get on Belgian radio and TV with it.   Unforgettable discovery of the Emotions cave.

- But THE surprise was the discovery of one of the most beautiful caves in the country; the "Grotte des Emotions".  At the end of the year, after tens of days of work, we already have 1200 m. of galleries.  The caves gives access to an important underground river. 

- We now total over 5000 m. of new passages in Belgium and can start dreaming about the next step, 10 kilometres!   5 years ago, we were still despairing that we would never find a new cave; nowadays we find too much!


- Two visits to the french Doubs, two visits to the U.K. (Wales & Yorkshire) and a 10 day stay in the  "Causses" (Gorges du Tarn).

- The summer holiday is spent in the french Chartreuse.  We make many a through-trip in the Dent de Crolles, one of France's biggest caves.
