ActiviTee: Valentine's Day Borrel / Drinking Night

Date & time: Wednesday 4th of February, 21:30
Location: De Tapperij

It’s almost Valentine’s Day, so we, the Activitee, thought we should do something special for this special day. We decided to raffle ourselves! People can buy any amount of tickets for every member of the Activitee. Per member only one ticket will be drawn, and that winner will win a date! So if you are anxious for a date with e.g. Merel, just buy lots of tickets for her and you’ll have a greater chance to win. But there is a catch… Once the winner has emerged, other people can suggest on what date the couple will go. All suggestions will be placed on the Wheel of Maikel to pick one. So if you either want a date with any of the Activitee members, you want to choose their date, or you just want to go for a drink with your friends, then we’ll see you the 4th of February in the Tapperij.

Brainstorm with the board

Via we get a lot of good ideas from you about a lot of things. From items you want to see in the merchandise to things you would like to change in our association.

We really like your input and will therefore organize a second 'brainstorm with the board' activity. We have some subjects in mind we would like to brainstorm about: the committees, the long term plan and the budget. If you would like to talk about something else that's possible too! All ideas are more than welcome.

Of course there will be cookies, coffee and tea :)

LLAMA: Real life Monopoly

Join our Little Lovely Active Members Activity, also know as LLAMA! It's happening on the 18th of February. This activity is organized by the board for all the active members, because you're doing a great job running the association!

This year you have to think strategically and take risks. You can be the winner if you make the right decisions. At the end of the game you can be a millionaire or be bankrupt!

We are going to play Real life Monopoly. During the game you can buy streets of Groningen. If a street is already bought you have to pay rent. The more streets you buy the more rent others have to pay to you. But do you have enough money? And do you get the streets you want to have?

We gather at 19:30 on the Grote Markt. There you will get all the information you need. This is the starting point of the game and from there you're deciding which streets you want and so where to go to.

All active members are invited. If you want to join in this exciting challenge please sign up at

Please sign up before February 16th.
