Dear people,

We’ve had to wait for a long time this year, but it’s finally here: BIOCAMP! This year, Biocamp will take place on the weekend of 1-3 March. A nice fact is that we’re going to KLONIE, well known among (slightly) older Gyrinus members.

The ticket price this year will be between 55 and 65 euro. For this price, you get a residence for the weekend, food, a bike and a lot of fun.

Do you feel like you need a break from college with you friends? Do you like to retrieve old memories? Or are you wondering where all those (slightly) older members are always talking about? Than sign up now via this link, because FULL = FULL.

Lots of love,
The Kampcie

Snow World

Dear Gyrini,

The first snowflakes have fallen in Holland and the lucky ones among us are almost going on winter sports (or have already been). To get in the mood for it, we are going to ski/snowboard in Snowworld in Zoetermeer on January 20th. Could you use a little practice? Or do you want to show off your skills? Come join us! Let us know if you’re there by pressing on the present button on Facebook, this way we’ll know how many people we can expect.

*** Please note: you are going back and forth on your own transport! Do you want to carpool with someone? Let us know, maybe we can arrange something for you.***

Wasted, Mortal and in the Train

Now that the New Year’s hangover has passed and the Christmas pounds are gained, it is time to start ‘training’, but not in the gym. On the 17th of January, Gyrinus will go to Nijmegen, aka Nimma. Be sure to be present at 20:45 at Amsterdam Zuid and make sure to bring enough alcoholic beverages to play out the 1.5 hour train trip. After that your eternal thirst for beer will be satisfied during a bar crawl. Of course the combination of ‘training’ and drinking till you drop sound likes music in the ears, so sign up now at ln.su1547878758niryg1547878758@taze1547878758tmale1547878758t1547878758.

Activities for the elderly

Dear students,

The best way to start the new year is with a good deed! Do you want to build up your karma and at the same time learn something about the old days? Then this is your chance!
On January the 15th we have organized a day out with elderly people from the organization Zonnebloem. A whole afternoon we will be doing fun activities with them. There will be different groups that go all to different locations like the museum or at the home itself playing fun games.
The day will be from 11:00 till 16:00 but we understand that busy students like you guys could have class at that time. That’s why the real activity will start at 13:00, at which time you can join!

We’re going with a fun group of elderly and we need a lot of volunteers. So sign up by sending an email to ln.su1547878758niryg1547878758@eict1547878758ca1547878758

Escape Room

Dear Gyrini,

Do you feel like you need an escape from all of the exams and chaos before the holidays? Then join us in finding some distraction at one of the Xitroom escape rooms! In a team, you’ll try to escape as fast as possible by solving all of the puzzles and mysteries within the room. Each team will play in an identical room at the exact same time. This way, we’ll find out which team is the smartest, fastest, but most importantly which is the best at teamwork and will be the first to escape the office of Professor X!

Tuesday the 11th December this thrilling event will take place for only €9. The game starts at 7:30 pm, but please make sure you’re there at 7:15 pm, so you won’t miss out on the explanation of the game (if you’re late, it will cost you your own game time…). The escape room is located at the Prins Hendrikkade 135.

Would you like to join? Sign up via:

We’re looking forward to it and hope to see you all soon!
