Vojvodina is the northern
province of Serbia and Montenegro. It is located in the heart of the Balkans
in Southeast Europe. Although Vojvodina is flat, climbing has become a
tradition. The first Vojvodina climber to scale Mont Blanc was in 1924, since
then they have reached the summits of the highest peaks in South America,
Asia, Europe and Australia. The only peak they are missing is Everest and they
hope to climb to the summit in 2005.
The expedition is being
organized by the Mountaineering Association of Vojvodina. The members of the
team are as follows, Miodrag Jovovic, Milivoj Erdeljan, Goran Ferlan, Andor
Luhovic, Mirjana Vasut, Mirjana Stevanovic, Iso Planic and Hoselito Bite.
