YEAR by YEAR
- As in all previous years (18 already!) we have been very active. WE
had an average of 10 activities per months.
We invested quite some time in looking for youngsters to join the club,
but unfortunately the results were nearly nil.
- We worked a lot in our various digs ( The "laminoir"; Pressoir;
Grotte "X", Waerimont, Chawresse) and that yielded a couple of hundreds
of meters of “new land”. Maybe not those giant new caves some of us were
dreaming off, but not bad neither.
In between we did a lot of “classic” trips in Belgium, we continued our
never-ending project “resurveying the Chawresse” and we trained several
of our members to become experienced surveyors.
- 4-days in the Côte d’Or (Frankce). Beautiful weather and nice
caves: Creux-Percé, Gouffre du Soucy and of course the splendid
Fantastic 10-day stay in the French Ardèche, where we visited
Orgnac 2 en 3 (so beautiful it cannot be described in words). A
trip into the remote parts of St-Marcel d’Archèche (réseau 4)
left us speechless. And what to say about Aven de Noel which is
also a jewell.
In the Pyrenees, in the Anialarra
System we made a nice discovery in the upstream parts: Réseau des
- Finally some members participated in other expeditions such as Soqotra
(Jos) or Gouffre Berger (Rudi).
