1.      Information on events for the rest of the year

The Prosessiteekkarit board made the decision to continue the decision made in October related to events. The updated decision was made at the board meeting held on 26.10. and it can be read below:

Prosessiteekkarit will not organise events for over 50 people inside. Events for over 50 people can be organised outside, if people that attend are divided into less than 50 people groups that will not interact during the event. The events organised are held in a way where the risk of transmission is minimised. For example, sitsit will not be organised. These decisions are valid until the end of the year.

3.      Overalls Sewing & Game Evenings 17.11. & 19.11.

Does sewing new patches into overalls feel tedious? Are your fingers in screws right at the beginning and the thread isn’t going to be found in the eye of the needle? No worries, help is near!

We want to make it easier for everyone to progress in patch sewing by organizing PT’s own overalls sewing evenings. In the evenings you can come to sew patches into your overalls, hear tips and just spend time with good company. There is also a possibility to buy some patches, if you want.

If you don’t feel like sewing overalls, there are also board games and other games to play during the evening!

We will arrange 2 sewing evenings in the OK20 upstairs and each sewing evening can accommodate 28 participants. With limited facilities and number of participants, please attend only one evening that suits you. The event dates are Tuesday November 17 and Thursday November 19. See that the dates have changed a bit!

You can arrive at OK20 starting from 6 pm.

The registration for both evenings start 9.11. at 12:00.

The upcoming board’s members may send you additional questions relating to the position. The application period ends on the 2nd of December 2020.

If you have any questions about the official positions or applying for them, please contact the head of that specific committee (you can find the heads of the committees here: https://prosessiteekkarit.fi/en/officials/).

15.   Stadventures 23.-27.11.

Have you ever wondered about how the history of Aalto University, its predecessor the Helsinki University of Technology and their student life has left its mark on Otaniemi and the Helsinki city center through the years? The student culture, and the Teekkari culture in particular, have many old and cherished traditions and they are present in multiple fascinating places, monuments and stories around Otaniemi and Helsinki. So, gather your friends and join us for an adventure through the magical history of the Teekkari. This is the Stadiventures!

In the event participants go through checkpoints in Otaniemi and Helsinki. The instructions for activities on checkpoints are given on Telegram, which means there won’t be any physical contact with organizers. When the team has performed the checkpoint activity, they will send their documentation of the performance via Telegram. The Telegram contact person will be your guide through the checkpoint crawl. For each checkpoint the group gets one point. By getting enough points the team will claim the right to buy the event’s official overall badge. The badges are going to be handed out later, more specific details will be announced later.

Gather a group of 3-10 people for yourself and register at [link to registration TBA]

Checkpoints can be completed 23.11.-27.11. Checkpoints can be completed on several different days, so all of them don’t necessarily need to be done on the same day.

WHAT: Stadventures!

WHERE: In Otaniemi & Helsinki

WHEN: Week 48, 23.11.-27.11.

WHY: A unique opportunity to learn more about student culture!

PRICE: 2e for overalls patch (to be paid when picking up the overalls patch)
