Hey, welcome to our page! We are the event-committee and we will organise two events for you this year! Let’s introduce you to these six awesome committee members who will take care of the events together and make them unforgettable for you! The chairwoman is Laughing Lina, Lina is her name but she laughs a lot and sometimes even cries when laughing. Lina makes sure that everything we need to do will be noted down and be done in time. Then we have Tess, the secretary. She makes sure that everything we say, which is a lot cause we’re girls, will be noted down. Actually Tess has a talent to type and speak at the same time and she does both with an incredible speed. Next up, we have Jasmijn, our acquisition fixer. With her friendly smile and some good “verkooppraatjes”, she will raise some extra money for our committee. When Jasmijn has fixed money, our treasurer Laura will take it into her budget and she keeps an eye on our money, so we won’t spend too much. (We also keep an eye on her, cause Laura tends to go to the shopping centre quite often.. We’re watching you Laura ;) ) When the budget is well arranged, Christie, with her sweet voice, will take care of a smooth communication with the external contacts. Spontaneous as she is and with a drive to keep everything organized, all external contacts will be pleased to contact us. As “kers op de taart”, we have Roos our promoter. This creative mind with her sparkling personality, will put some extra sparkle to the posters and flyers she makes, to let you know that an awesome event is going to take place soon! So keep your eyes open, with the six of us we are trying to make the two event-weekends a success! We hope to see you all at the events!
Love, the Eventcommittee ‘18/’19

The Event committee of VIP organizes two weekend activities each year. The first one is the hitchhiking contest in the second weekend of December. The committee chooses where the weekend will be take place. In the past we hitchhiked to big cities like Paris and Berlin as well as small ones such as Heidelberg and Trier.
The second activity is the Batavierenrace. The race is the biggest rally race of the world and takes place at the end of April. The competition starts in Nijmegen, Friday night at 00:00 o’clock and ends on Saturday afternoon on campus of the University of Enschede.
The committee, when organizing the hitchhiking contest, will come in contact with hostel owners in other countries and will reserve a bus for the journey back. For the Batavierenrace, the event committee will hire a trainer and takes care of everything is going smoothly during the weekend.
