Thank you all for coming and contributing to the spirit and discoveries of an extremely enjoyable, rewarding and successful summer.
We would like to take the opportunity to thank the following organisations and individuals for their invaluable support throughout the course of the expedition:
Oxford University; The RTZ - CRA Group
The Ghar Parau Foundation; The AC Irvine Travel Fund
The Sports Council; Foundation for Sport and the Arts
Dragon Caving Supplies; Bat Products Ltd; BJ & JM Whistler
Everyone, within and without OUCC, who went out of their way to make things easier for us, and particularly the following, without whom...
Joan Arthur; Terence Bennett; Peter Bolt; Chris Densham; Dirge Gardiner; Dr Tom Kemp; Dave Lacey; Martin Laverty; Jim Ramsden; Pauline Rigby; Richard Ward; John Wilcock, and particularly Steve Roberts.
We would also like to take the opportunity to thank Juan-José
Gonzalez Suarez, president of the Federacion Asturiana de Espeleologia, for the
continued goodwill and support we have enjoyed throughout many years of visiting the
Picos. Without such help our expeditions would be impossible, and we hope this fruitful
liaison will continue for many years to come.
