While the end of the year is coming closer and everybody is making sure they have plenty of vacation plans, we're still having tons of activities up till then.
Last Friday we had the Alumni Social where alumni came to have a beer and a chat with the current members. Of course it was also a bit like a reunion for a lot of people and it was great fun.
On Monday we had Wind surfing which had amazing weather. The wind took up a bit later in the clinic so we could first try the basics and later on pick up some speed. A big thanks to the boys and girls from SurfAce for making this possible!
After that we had the Candidate Board Announcement Social in the evening. Our new 6 person board was announcement and goes as following:
Chairman: Max Velich
