What is the Spring Alumni Weekend? The Spring Alumni Weekend is the weekend where new alumni can get to know older alumni, get to know more about EYP the Netherlands and have a lot of fun reuniting with their friends from the Prelims and Nationals! We are going to do all of this with a lot of fun, especially during all of the amazing activities that the Regional Representatives have planned for you. Moreover, the theme party on Saturday is the best part of the weekend, as you can go nuts with your outfit in the theme of fairytales and be the prince, princess, frog, donkey, bear or whatever else of your dreams!! You sure do not want to miss out on this. Lastly, the Supervisory Board will instal the 2019-2020 Board of EYP the Netherlands on Sunday, and they will host an activity in order for all alumni to get to know them, as they will be the faces and decision-makers of EYP the Netherlands for the coming year.

Programme Beneath you can find the programme for the Alumni Weekend. Although times may differ slightly, this will give you an overview of what to do when. The workshops on Saturday will be about ‘EYP after Nationals’, ‘Application Writing’, ‘EYP National and International Structures’ and ‘Understanding Europe’.

Theme Party Fairytales have had a place in our hearts and lives since the very moment we can remember. This weekend, it is time to bring back those memories and embrace your inner fairytale character. This can literally be anyone you admire or despite, aspire to be or want to make fun of. Watch your favorite Disney movies again, read your favorite fairytales again and embark in a magical weekend full of fun. On Saturday, we will be hosting a theme party in the theme of fairytales and expect everyone to dress up as a character! From Alladdin to Dumbo, from Cinderella to Minnie Mouse, everything is possible and will be just as fun! If you have awesome decorations lying around, please bring them so we can make the party even more magical. The standard rules apply to this party, drinking is only allowed if you’re over 18, and we have a zero tolerance policy regarding drugs.

Travel Information We will be staying at group accommodation de Wildwal, the name of our building is de Eekhoorn. The address of the venue is Galgenbergweg 3, in Lunteren. If you drive there, your navigation might ask you if you want to avoid ‘onverharde wegen’, do not say yes, as the very last part of the road is ‘onverhard’, and you will end up at the neighbours if you say yes. If you come with public transport, you will have to travel to the trainstation of Lunteren, every half hour trains arrive there from Ede-Wageningen and Amersfoort. On your way back, every half hour trains leave for Ede-Wageningen and Amersfoort. After you arrive at the train station, it is about a 15-20 minute walk to the venue. We are currently looking into the options of picking people up at the station if everyone arrives at a certain time. More information about this will follow on the Facebook event, so keep an eye on that! Please note that if you want to join dinner on Friday night, you will have to be present at 19.00 (so the train that arrives at 18.34). When planning your trip back, please do not count on being able to leave sooner than 14.30, as we want to round up the weekend with everyone.
