Nothing worth mentioning; still an average of two activities per week, no financial worries, enough members…

BELGIUMSalle des Dames in Réseau du Printemps
- Again most of our time was invested in the ongoing exploration of Bois de Waerimont.  In the springtime, we discovered a very big continuation there,  Réseau du Printemps, in which we made 30 long and difficult trips which resulted in a total length of 1800 meters. To explore the most remote parts of this network, an average trip takes at least 10 hours.  

- But we also worked a lot in other Belgian caves such as Chawresse where we continued our resurveying project, and Grotte des Emotions where we continued our dig near the terminal sump ("Zwijnegat").

- Worth mentioning: in Belgiums’ most difficult cave, a bunch of crazy members made the first double through-trip Weron-Dellieux-Weron (in only 7 hours); it is quite certain that this self-torture will not soon be repeated.

 

FOREIGN CAVINGThe entrance of Pozo Ibarra
- Again an important discovery during our exploration in the Spanish Anialarra mountains: Pozo Ibarra, a vertical cave that we could even connect with the Anialarra Cave System. Pozo Ibarra becomes the 4th entrance to the cave system.   The cave features a giant shaft, The Extremist which is a 222 m drop!

 - Of course we did many “classic caves” during our traditional long weekends in the French Doubs.  But we also did some deep and difficult caves: in the Vaucluse we bottomed Trou Souffleur, 600m deep, in a record-time; and at the Pierre-St-Martin a few of our members bottomed Couey Lotge, also 600m deep.
