Good news and bad news. Matienzo will not be going ahead this year, due to Covid worries and the age of both the cavers and the local population. However, some good news the planned Berger trip WILL be going ahead (subject to reciprocal relaxing of rules in France). Sign up on the forum and someone will be in touch you don’t have long!
