November was a busy Vitalis month for most of the Vitalists. This month started for a couple of runners from the Road running group with the Berenloop at Terschelling. You could see the blue shirts running at the beach with a lot of rain and wind. PR’s were broken and for some people, it was even their first half marathon!
There wasn’t much time to rest, since there was a really special social drinks at the planning: at Wednesday the 8th of november, the candidate board of 2024 was announced. Rosa (chairman), Miriam (secretary), Fleur (treasurer), Diewertje (commissioner sports) and Rixt (commissioner external affairs) will be in the 28th board next year. Until the general members meeting, they’ll look like Disney princesses. Especially Fleur, as Ariël, was really looking at her Disney alter ego two days later at the Zac Freudenbergcross: after days of rain, the water was up to the ankles, so a mermaid tail would have been quite useful. With a big amount of participants, it was another successful edition of the ZFC, organized by the WegCie.
Not only the WegCie was busy in november, the FeestCie had lots of things to do as well: atWednesday the 15th of november, they organized a spikeballclinic, given by none other than Vitalist Frank Buigel. Although it was very clear to some Vitalists why they do not play ball sports, everyone had a fun evening that of course ended in the Tram.
At the last weekend of november we left to Ameland with 30 people for the autumn trainingsweekend. Due to a tree on the track during a storm and a lightning strike in the train control center, we camped at Leeuwarden station for 2 hours, but luckily we ended up on Ameland after a journey of 6 hours instead of 3.5. We spent two days running and walking atthe beach, through the dunes and through the forest. In the evening, the VakanCie created afun pub quiz and the shuffleboard was used a lot. It was a fun weekend.
Two weeks after the Spike ball clinic, we did some inside sports again with a big group of active members during the active member activity, this time with a bow and arrow in our hands to do some archery tag. Almost all active members were there to shoot each other. At the end, we went home with many bruises. Really ideal, two days before the gala.
So, november was a month full of Vitalis again. Next to all these activities, the Tuesday night dinner was crowded as well and of course, the trainings continued as well (in the snow!!).
