This lustrums’ gala, the official opening of the lustrum week, will be held in de Blaauwe Kamer, in a former stone factory amidst the equally named nature reserve area southwest of Wageningen. Included in this night is unlimited beer, wine and soda, and the live performances of two bands and a DJ. The first band to play this night is Pyramid, a four-headed rock cover band from Utrecht. A band with a rough edge and solid base, not afraid to rock the stage. A band destined to entertain and loosen your tongue. Our second performance this evening will be the band I’m with stupid, also from Utrecht. In the genre ska, reggae and funk, this band will provide a musical cocktail that will make your feet barely touch the floor. After the gala there will be an afterparty in de Dokter. See the gala page for more information.

It’s up to you which of the two excursions grabs your interest more. Both excursions have limited space, so the first to signup is the first to choose.
The first excursion will go to Nijmegen, where we will visit a project called ‘Ruimte voor de Waal’, an area where the dikes have been placed further inland to create a larger floodplain. This project was developed as result of the floods in the late nineties and is supposed to prevent another flooding. The main group will be leaving from bus stop Campus/Atlas at 11.30. However you can also meet us at the Lentse Waranda at 13:00. The excursion will take around 2 hours and don’t forget to put on some proper outdoor shoes.
Where & when: pickup& return at bus stop Campus/Atlas,Wageningen. April 19th 11:30 – 17:00
The second excursion is bound for the Water Management Centre of Rijkswaterstaat (the executive force of the Dutch Ministry of Infrastructure and Environment). Rijkswaterstaat is 24 hours per day concerned with the maintenance of the Dutch roads and waterways, and ensures our national flood protection by building dikes.
