Vondelpark clean-up

Dear Gyrini,

The Actcie is back with the second edition of the Vondelpark Clean-Up on the 17th of September! Whats a better way to start this school year than help creating a less polluted environment. Of course, only cleaning up the Vondelpark doesn’t solve the current issues regarding our polluted environment, but at least doing something is better than doing nothing.

Do YOU want to help us by picking up trash and putting it where it belongs, don’t hesitate any longer and sign up! Scared you are going to get dirty? Don’t worry! We will be wearing jackets and will use pickers (afvalgrijpers).

Sign up by sending an email to: ln.su1579895892niryg1579895892@eict1579895892ca1579895892

First Stelling Evening

Dear newbies and veterans,

The wait is finally over. It is time to kick off the new college year at the best bar the VU could ever give to you: de Tegenstelling!
The seniors can finally drink that sweet, sweet Budels again which they have craved for this past summer. And the freshmen can finally discover what this ‘Budels’ actually is and what a real Wednesday night at Gyrinus is like.
At this First Stelling Evening you will experience the hospitality Gyrinus is known for and you will create beautiful memories which you will remember forever (or not..?).
Most of all, we want to give you a warm welcome and introduce you to your second home: Gyrinus natans!

We will see you the 4th of September in WN-D103!

Love, het Alcoholaat

Bird Excursion

Dear Gyrini,

The trees are green again and the birds are chirping. Which means that the famous bird excursion is back! On the 11th of June we will gather at the GK (P-022) to leave the VU at 6.15 p.m.
So get your bird books from the shelves and your binoculars from the attic to join us on this special day. We will start with a picnic and after that we will watch some beautiful creatures. And the best part (well beside the birds) is that all of this is FREE! However, it would be nice if you would bring some food or drinks for the picnic, because more is more.

Also, if you are able to bring a car, please let us know by answering the corresponding question in the sign-up form. If we can manage to have enough cars available that day, we won’t have to go to the location by bike. (But we’ll let you know if that’s the case or if you still have to bring your bike.)

Sign up via the following link: www.gyrinus.nl/birdexcursion

Hope to see you there!!

XOXO

Roommate Borrel

Most of you don’t live with your parents anymore, maybe you live at Uilenstede now with 13 others or somewhere else in Amsterdam with some others. Nevertheless you’ve probably told your roommates about Gyrinus. Maybe they found you falling asleep on the couch totally wasted on Wednesday evening or you had to explain why again you can’t hang out with your roommates because you are at a Gyrinus activity.
June 5th is the time to introduce them to De Tegenstelling. Have a beer with them and forget all the not done dishes or the other “house-tasks”, which haven’t been done!
