The Alberta Speleological Society occasionally organizes trips to foreign countries to participate in cave-related events. For example, in 2001 there was a club expedition to Cuba; in 2005 cavers went to the NSS Convention in Alabama, USA; in 2007 cavers went cave-diving in the cenotes of the Yucatan, Mexico; and in 2008 cavers spent two weeks studying caves and karst in the Bahamas. Although there may be some club support, participants normally cover their own costs for travel, accommodation, equipment and a share of group expenses.

These events are generally advertised in our newsletter, by e-mail, are posted on the events calendar , or are discussed at pub nights. Or you could ask an executive member if there are any upcoming trips.
