Vondelpark Clean-up

Dear Gyrini,
The school year has started again. Whats a better way to start this school year than help creating a less polluted
environment. Thanks to the nice weather, people are going to the parks to relax. This also means more trash in the Vondelpark. Of course, only cleaning up the Vondelpark doesn’t solve the current issues regarding our polluted environment, but doing something is always better than doing nothing. Do you want to join us in cleaning up the Vondelpark on October 6th from 14:00 until 16:00? Sign up now by sending an email to ln.su1601233788niryg1601233788@eict1601233788ca1601233788!
Scared you are going to get dirty? Don’t worry! We will be wearing jackets and will use pickers (afvalgrijpers).
We hope to see you soon (from a distance)
With love,

September borrels @ De Blauwe Engel

Dear members,
We hope you all enjoyed the ESA as much as we did. Unfortunately, we have to wait a bit longer before we can go back to the Stelling, but this doesn’t mean we can’t continue borreling! That’s why we will continue our Wednesday borrels.
Every Wednesday in September from 19:30 till 23:30, we will be borreling at De Blauwe Engel.
You can sign up for the borrels by filling in this form: https://www.gyrinus.nl/borrels/ 
For this Wednesday (September 9th) we’ll work with ‘first come first serve’. For the other borrels we will make a schedule when everybody can come, so everybody can attend as much borrels as possible. When filling in the forms make sure you are available when you say you are, because when we assign a date to you, we expect you to be there.
Best wishes,
The 67th board


Dear members,
on Monday the first week of the college year will start again. Normally this means the Stelling will open soon (the best day of the year!) However, sadly enough we can’t borrel in the Stelling yet, but fortunately this doesn’t mean we can’t start the new year with lots of friends, lots of drinks and lots of fun! That is why Wednesday September 2nd we will have our anual ESA at Thuishaven, from 19:30 till 00:00!!

We want to point out to you that we will not serve alcohol if you are not 18 yet.
We want to remind you all to keep in mind the Corona virus, so if you are feeling ill please stay home.
Stay healthy and we hope to see many of you September 2nd! The sign up link for the ESA is the following: https://www.gyrinus.nl/esa/.

Lots of love,

the 67th board 

Sign up for our social drinks!

Dear members,
Corona is been going on for a while now, and although we may be getting a bit used to it now; we have had a lot of fun online activities we really enjoyed, the one thing we are really missing is our weekly ‘borrels’. You too? In that case we have good news! Starting the first of July we will organize borrels again every Wednesday in July! Since we can’t use our beloved Tegenstelling, these borrels will be held in Il caffe! There are limited places (50) so you have to enrolle through the sign up link! Here you can state which dates you want to join the borrel and with whom, and we will make a schedule when everyone can come. We will try to make sure everyone gets to join as much borrels as possible, but for July first: first come first serve. When you sign up for a certain date we do expect you to show up so fill in the forms with care! In the weekend before the borrel you will receive an email if you can come.

Since there is limited places, members will have priority. The borrel will take place from 21:00-00:00 at Il Caffe.To celebrate our first borrel, we will kick off with a bbq at Il caffe. We have 30places so be quick to claim your spot. The costs for the bbq wil be €15,00.

Sign up link: gyrinus.nl/socialdrinks

We want to remind you all to keep in mind current measures regarding Corona, and if you are feeling ill please stay home

Stay healthy and we hope to see many of you July first!
Lots of love,

The 67th board

Gyrinus Update March 2020

Dear visitor,

Just like that the month February flew by. Perhaps because of the many activities that we all did together, or just because February is the shortest month. We will never know. 

The only thing we do know is that March will once again is filled to the brim with awesome activities. To start this month of just right March 3rd the employee borrel will be held, with some free drinks and snacks for you. 

After this March 6th, de Tegenstelling will be like a kindergarten, seeing all the parents during the Parents Borrel. After this trip down memory lane, the Onderwijscie will organize a visit to the company IQVIA during the Company Visit to show us what our future might be like. To end this month full of fun on a high note, March 24th, the board information evening will be held and just like that we are already looking for our successors. 

Lastly, I would like to inform you all that our yearly band show Pure Music will be May 20th in de Tuinzaal. For more information look at the other side!

Kind regards,

Sander van den Ouden

Commissioner of Activities 2019/2020
