The 13th ATiC meeting took place in Calabria/Italy, on Camping Calabrisella, located directly at the beautiful beach of Catanzaro Lido. We stayed there from 8th of June 2002 (evening) until 13th of June 2002(departure).

Report (by Francesco)

During Val di fassa meeting, i show to Micha that should be possible to organize one in southern Italy. Later, next November, i received an e-mail that asked me if i still interested to organize the meeting. My answer was of course

To bear that - I don't live there anymore - I organized all by phone (with my dad providing support for wine and BBQ)

The choice was Camping Calabrisella, located in a pinewood near Catanzaro beach, in a strategical position for various tours as well as a jump into the sea.

A solid group of participating meet in Livorno to take ferry to Palermo, to save some km and to profit by a trip to Sicilia..

Here our heroes on the Etna!

Afterwards they continued the journey to Calabria.

during the trip Ralph slipped and Carole.s ankle was sprained, but all was at once ok.

When they arrived to camping, they pitch the tents, hardiest also an hammock.

Quietest rent a bungalow...
