Meanwhile, the association has more than 160 members, which makes us the largest student-athletics association in the Netherlands.

The athletics track in the Stadspark is well looked after and equipped with a nice gym. We share this track and gym with the athletics club Groningen Atletiek.

Review May

By: Inge Salzmann, at 08-06-2021 at 22:06

May was full of fun activities and competitions. We are very lucky that more and more is allowed and that we can enjoy the wonderful weather! More and more training was allowed and even the association weekend (sort of) continued. On May 8 and 9, several fun activities in Groningen were organized by the FeestCie, which was a success. In addition, an online Cluedo was played on May 13 via Discord and there was windsurfing on May 24. Many enthusiastic Vitalists have participated in all these activities, which was seen as a great success. Unfortunately, there was less sun than hoped during windsurfing, but that didn't spoil the fun. To end May, the virtual competition on our own beautiful athletics track was also very good. Many Vitalists have put in great performances and very fast relays were also run. All the hard training during the long corona period is rewarded at the competitions. In June many fun activities and competitions will be held. How wonderful that we can enjoy the new measures that are especially in our favor!

April Review

By: Martijn van Dijk, at 07-05-2021 at 14:15

April started with an afternoon in the city park to track down all the eggs that the Easter Bunny had left behind the week before. In pairs, the fanatics went looking for them and after a pleasant afternoon, the last few Easter eggs were found after almost four hours. The online escape room of the FeestCie proved to be a tough assignment for some. While the chemists among the participants eventually solved the riddles quite quickly, finding the PH of puke proved to be quite a task for some. In the end, however, each group managed to solve the riddles, perhaps with a few hints, and it was a very enjoyable evening. For the first time in Vitalis' history an auction was held. All kinds of playful items were auctioned for high prices. For example, a Vitalist bought his own head on the front of our club magazine, a Vitalist who now has to walk around with a blue moustache for two months, and even a beer was sold for 17 euros. It was delivered to the home address, but it is still an expensive service. All in all it was a great success with a profit that we at Vitalis can be very satisfied with. Fortunately, there was also a lot going on in the field of sports this month. During the virtual competition, AV run and batavierenrace many personal records were smashed, thrown and jumped. There was also plenty of participation in the NSK Ekiden, in which ladies, men and mixed teams had to run a marathon together. Fortunately, the times run were ultimately a lot better than the team names, with the men's Fast Shearing Rascals and the women's Barbabellas taking podiums. Even though many of the activities were not quite in the shape we would have liked, there was still a lot going on in April and May will be another month of memorable activities.
