Expo 2018

This section of the wiki is just a tool to help get expo 2018 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 7th of July until the 19th of August (6 weeks); followed by the Eurospeleo Conference the week after.

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, drink Gosser, don't die.


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

Post-Expedition Tasks

Need to ensure expo 2016/2017 are completely finished up before moving on to expo 2018.


These aren't specific tasks that need to be done but things to think about and discuss:

  • How much flapjack is too much flapjack?
