Newsletter December 2018

Posted in Newsletters on Dec 12, 2018


Dear members,

The December newsletter is quick to follow the November newsletter. This is due to the delay the November newsletter had, because 2 board members were ill. The next edition for January will come halfway through January, so it will take a while for the next one.

Activities organised by the association

The activities are official. On Saturday the 12th of January, from 16:00 until 18:00 there will be a lesson in iaido, provided by Jimmy van Turnhout. Should people have their own bokken, they are free to bring them. For those who are not in possession of these weapons, the association has plenty of spares in the closet.

After the iaido lesson we will go laser gaming at Laser Quest Eindhoven, Oude Stadsgracht 15 in Eindhoven. We will meet at 19:30 in front of Laser quest to allow everyone to freshen up and eat something beforehand. The costs are normally €9 per person, but this will partially be reimbursed by the board. The amount depends on how many people participate.

External activities

Next week is the van Lint week. The official planning is now clear to us as well and is as following:

  • Twister XL, at least 4 people required, Tuesday from 17:30 to 21:00
  • Dodgeball, at least 5 people required, Tuesday from 21:00 until 00:00
  • Gymnastic baseball, at least 5 people required, Wednesday from 17:30 until 21:00
  • Knotsbal, at least 5 people required, Wednesday from 21:00 until 00:00
  • Assault course, at least 5 people required, Thursday from 17:30 until 21:00
  • Finals, should we make them, Thursday from 21:00 until 00:00

We would like to see everyone join us, either as a team member or part of the cheering squad, so that everyone can enjoy the evening!

General updates

Tikkie has development a business version of its app, so we are looking into the possibility to use it as an association. Initially this will only be for members whom have paid too late and of whom the board possess their phone numbers.

Lastly we would like to wish everyone a merry Christmas and a happy and safe new year! We look forward to seeing everyone back on the mat with all their body parts intact!

Kind regards

Jorick Koningstein
