Gebruik noppenwand

We hebben inmiddels iets meer informatie al is het niet bepaald positief. De noppenwand heeft meerdere aspecten die er voor zorgen dat de wand niet aan de norm voldoet. De mogelijkheden om deze aspecten te versterken worden uitgezocht. Echter wordt het niet verwacht dat dit voor het eind van het eerste kwartaal van 2020 opgelost is en betekend dit dat de noppenwand voor een lange periode buiten gebruik is.

Verdere effecten en oplossingen worden nog besproken.

New Year's Climbing

To usher in the new year we are going to go climbing on the outside wall on Saturday the 4th of January 2020. We will open the wall at 5pm, participating is free! After the climbing we will organize a barbecue, so you can fill up your belly with a nice piece of meat/vegetable burger after climbing in the cold. For the barbecue we do ask a contribution. The costs will depend on the amount of people who want to join the barbecue. At most it will be 10 euros. We still need a few barbecues for the barbecue. And last but not least; there will be glühwein and hot chocolate!

Subscribe via Google Forms.

See you on the 4th of January!
Greetings from the Accie :D

New Year's auction

Dear TSAC member,

On the 13th of January there will be another New Year’s auction. There is obviously no better way to start the new year than to buy a bunch of climbing related gear you didn't even know you wanted! The proceeds will go to TSAC and be used to organise tons of cool events in the new year. 

The activity will take place in the MBasement in the educafé (At the Starbucks). The activity will start at 19:00 by enjoying a free dinner. At 20:00 the auction will start. The auction will finish at 22:00. Afterwards we will enjoy some drinks until 23:00 at which point we will move to the Vestingbar. 

If you have anything you’d like to put up for auction, reply to this email and we will make the arrangements to have your item auctioned. You can basically put up your old climbing gear, yourself or almost literally anything else for auction. 

You’re obviously super excited by know. To sign up, just fill in the following form:

The TSAC will throw a great party on the 7th of December to celebrate the 40th birthday of the association and the 50th birthday of Truus. Can you show us who is rocking your world? Is it David Bowie? Truus? Or do you have a secret guilty pleasure?

In addition to this, there might even be a live performance of our famous duo 'Woutor en Natosja'!

In the afternoon we'll organise 'klimmen in Twenth'. During this afternoon there'll be 'buildering' (bouldering on buildings) and it will be possible to climb our world famous concrete climbing wall.

The afternoon program is from 15:00 til 18:00 at the Sportcentrum
The Dies is from 21:00 til 4:00 in Sociëteit Asterion

The costs for both the afternoon program and the Dies are 5 euro in total.

If you want to join for only the Dies, the costs are also 5 euro.

Parrots and monkeys are allowed, to prevent drunk accidents please leave you weapons at home and it won't be necessary to smuggle alcoholic drinks inside. For this part, we specifically designed this Google Form. Sign-up for the drink through this form and it will help the pirates from the AcCie to know how many ships they have to plunder to get enough beer and rum.

Alpine Basecamp

Herby the latest information regarding the ABK. This is a week where we'll be camping in the Alps whilst doing epic things. TSAC has arranged a camping but nothing more. This means you need to bring your own stuff. There also wont be any instruction. Please take these things into consideration.

The ABK will be from the 27th of July until the 4th of August. We will stay at camping solden, in Otztal, Austria. We have reserved 4 fields of 70 square meters. The costs of the field will be paid proportionally amongst all participants. You can check in at the camping during the entire week and you will be expected to pay individually. The TSAC has a budget of 300 euros, this money will be used to pay the fields of the camping.

Coincedentally the GSAC will also be staying on the same camping at the same time.

If you want to start planning your tours, I recommend the following sites: Bergsteigen, Summitpost and Climbers Paradise.

Summer reservation equipment

The summer holiday is approaching, meaning that many of you are planning their summer courses or climbing trips. Some of you might need some extra equipment and would like to borrow it from the association. To regulate this and to make sure everyone is able to borrow what they need, we request you to do the following: (in case you would like to borrow something)

After the 12th of June the FacCie will check the reservations and devide the equipment as correct as possible. For this, we planned two evenings on which you can pick-up the equipment. These are the evenings of the 2nd and 4th0 of July. If you have any questions, please contact us.

Kind regards, The FacCie

Uitwisseling Kronos

Op 11 en 12 juni gaat er een epische uitwisseling plaatsvinden tussen de TSAC en atletiekvereniging Kronos. Op woensdag 12 juni komen zij gezellig met ons klimmen op de buitenwand en op donderdag 11 juni gaan wij bij hen een training meemaken.

Dit is het perfecte moment om je conditie nog even aan te scherpen voor de zomer en dat atletiek bestaat uit veel leukere dingen dan simpelweg rondjes rennen. Als je er dinsdag niet bij kunt zijn, kun je alsnog lekker komen klimmen op de buitenwand op woensdag.

Gelieve je op te geven met deze link.

Beste alpinist, aspirant-alpinist, sportklimmer of boulderaar,

We zijn allemaal bezig met de laatste weekjes het collegejaar te overleven. We kijken allemaal uit naar de zomer en dan vooral naar het Alpien Basis Kamp. Voor de mensen die dit epische spektakel nog niet hebben meegemaakt, zal ik het kort uitleggen. We gaan week lang kamperen in de Otztal, Oostenrijk en vanaf daar epische alpiene tochten maken, schittermagische sportklimroutes trotseren en misschien zelfs een bouldertje of twee toetakelen.

Om hiervoor in de stemming te komen is er volgende week woensdag(22 mei) de Pre-ABK BBQ! We gaan dan lekker barbequen terwijl we sterke verhalen over afgelopen jaren uitwisselen en optimistische plannen voor aankomende zomer delen.

De BBQ duurt van 18:00 tot 22:00 en zal traditiegewijs plaatsvinden op het ABK veldje naast de hockeyvelden.

Natuurlijk ben jij hierbij! Je hoeft slechts het Google form in te vullen.

Picasa foto's

Google is al jaren bezig om zijn fotodienst Picasa te ontmantelen. Het begon met het stopzetten van de desktop applicatie Picasa. Later volgden ook de picasaweb website en de Picasa API. Op 2 april zet Google de laatste stap. De foto's die nog in de archieven terug te vinden waren, worden dan namelijk verwijderd.

Dit betekent concreet dat op de TSAC site geen oude klimfoto's meer te vinden zullen zijn. Al enige tijd werden de foto's zelf niet meer vertoond omdat de API offline gehaald was, maar werkten de linkjes naar het archief nog wel. Mocht je nog oude klimfoto's willen downloaden door die archieven te bezoeken, doe dit dan voor 2 april.

Voor recentere foto's werd al jaren Flickr gebruikt. Deze functionaliteit blijft gewoon werken.
