Meeting in proportion to Capanna Margherita - 24 / 06 / 2017
It is not a real social outing that the Club offers 4000 24 for Saturday June to Capanna Regina Margherita on Signalkuppe: it is rather an opportunity to meet for a day at high altitude between old and new friends.
Since our members are all high mountain experts, the reservation and the organization of the excursion is left to the individual member by its own means, eoeach and every one can choose to go on foot or on skis. IS however appropriate that those wishing to participate him via e-mail to the signals Club secretary. The meeting directly to Capanna Margherita on Saturday afternoon, so eat dinner together. The next day you can make some nice climb in the area, as long as weather conditions allow.
See you then to the Capanna Margherita!

50 years of the expedition "Afghan '67"
Fifty years ago, it was organized under the aegis of Turin SUCAI an expedition to Hindu-Kush (Afghanistan), during which climbs 11 were inviolate peaks, including the Koh-i-Sharan 6100 m. reached by the consortium of Luciano Ratto, Founder of the Club 4000, and Andrea Bonomi, Member of the Club since 2001.
In the company's anniversary, Carlo Crovella has recovered (with the collaboration of the person concerned) the original diary of Luciano Ratto and numerous photographs taken during the expedition, collecting the material in one of his "Mountain Notebooks" series that the same Crovella makes available free of charge.
The Notebook n. 4 "Afghan '67" is interesting not only for the strictly alpine, but also to illustrate the conditions of that time in Afghanistan, a country virtually inaccessible to the early' 80, helping also to understand some of the events that have touched that distant region recent years.
A presentation of "Afghan '67" you can read on "Mountains and Valleys" site
; The publication is sent free of charge in pdf format to anyone who requests it, following the instructions on attached.
