Expo 2017

This section of the wiki is just a tool to help get expo 2017 preparation done in a coordinated fashion. The main expo website is

Once the tasks and discussions below become more concrete they should be transferred to the main Expo website so that the expo website remains up to date.

Expo Dates

This year's expo dates are Sat 8th July to Sun 20th August (6 weeks).

Things that need Attention

Everyone is welcome on expo - it is not just for CUCC people. We expect some ULSA and UBSS people at least. There is plenty of cave to go round, although we try to keep it below 20 people at any one time to avoid 'nowhere to kip at the bivi' syndrome.

Mission Statement

Go caving, have fun, don't injure anyone.


Discussion happens on the Expo Mailing List. You need to be on here if you are thinking of coming.

Chat: The Expo IRC Channel is #expo on Use any IRC client or Web access
