Review of a great weekend

Sinterlaken 2019 began with a vision – to meet each other, exchange ideas, experience something great together. And I think I can say that we succeeded:

The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly, we talked and laughed together – German, French, English – no matter. The workshops, the lectures, the Speleo cinema were all well attended, the premiere of the new film about the Siebenhenste-Hohgant a complete success. The SpeleOlympics pure fun, the photo and plan exhibition full of surprises. In the trade hall there was everything the SpeleoHeart could desire, and by the exhibitors there was a lot to discover and discuss. We ate well, drank well and celebrated the SSS and HRH. The excursions could take place despite the rain and everyone came out well and hopefully got home safely.

The 14th National Congress is over but lives on in our memories and as part of the history of the SSS. Thanks to everyone who participated in any way!
