It is that time of the year again! Back in the Netherlands the days are getting shorter and the temperature keeps dropping. Supermarkets have stocked up on pepernoten and chocolate letters and the discussion on which pepernoten taste best (chocolate-covered or not) has been held several times already. This can only mean 1 thing… Sinterklaas will be visiting our small country soon!
As we all know how busy Sinterklaas is, TU Delft alumnus Timo Gerres stepped forward and offered to host a Dutch Engineers Alumni Sinterklaasborrel in Madrid. This gives you the opportunity to celebrate this truly Dutch tradition while catching up with your fellow alumni from TU Delft, Twente University, Wageningen University and TU Eindhoven.
Date: Thursday 29 November
Location: Maïmú Bar, Calle Ruiz, 21, 28004 Madrid
More information and registration
We have added a fun Sinterklaas game to the box, which will test your knowledge on this Dutch tradition. Do you want to win the delicious prize? Then make sure to update your Sint-knowledge via Google & Wikipedia.
We will make sure there are enough pepernoten, taaitaai and candy, but you will have to pay for your own drinks.
If you want to join this event, please register before 27 November. And please feel free to forward this invitation to other alumni who studied at one of the 4 technical universities in the Netherlands!
