Looking for a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life? Take a well-deserved break and come to the pHuone to participate in Association’s PauseTime! 🥰☕️
Common PauseTimes will be organized every Wednesday from 16:00 onwards. Any exceptions will be announced. From 16:00 to 18:00, there will always be someone from the board so you can for example easily buy overall patches during that time. Depending on the wishes of the people present, the break can be spent by playing games, having chit chat with a nice cup of coffee/tee on the side or even watching a film. However, the playstation is having a break too during the PauseTime so the sofa area and TV are free for the common use and we can all focus on each other. Come to meet old and new PT-friends and make yourself at home in the association’s living room!
The theme of this week’s PauseTime is Teekkarius150!🔥🔥
From 17:00 there will be representatives of the Teekkarius150 committee, so it’s a great opportunity to get a Teekkarius150 score card, enjoy a surprise snack and a fun programme.

Munajahti kicks off 5.4. at OK20 big side, where teams get their first clue. OK20 will also serve as a finish line and an afterparty location, where the party starts at 9pm.
