Associations and actors within AYY have the opportunity to submit important event dates for the student union’s academic year calendar. Events can be submitted through the google docs file linked below until Sunday, 27 May 2012. Please add your events under the correct month in chronological order. Please enter the text you want in the calendar ”Event name/Text” field (yellow background). Pleaase note that one line can hold up the maximum of 25 characters of text, including spaces. When writing the text, please consider how many lines from your own calendar you wish to be ”wasted”. The calendar is trilingual so please take this into account when planning the text.

3. VUORIMIESKILTA GUILD’S LEGENDARY BEER RELAY RACE
Vuorimieskilta Guild’s legendary beer relay race is here again!
It is again the time to gather a student team to run around the Department of Materials Science and Engineering on May Day Eve, as the traditional beer relay race of Vuorimieskilta Guild is approaching! The beer relay will start in the courtyard of the department on Monday morning, 9am, on 30 Apr 2011!
The teams will consist of three (3) runners and one (1) anchorman = a total of four (4) people. The participation fee is 10 euro and payment information is submitted to contact persons by email.
The registration for the beer relay will begin at 12noon on Thursday, 19 Apr 2011 at http://vk.ayy.fi/ilmomasiina/. You can sign up for the general series or women’s series. There is room for the first 35 teams! You can also sign up for the waiting list when you can join the competition if any team decides to cancel their participation.
Beer relay rules for the first-timers:
At the starting shot, the anchorman begins to drink. When the anchorman has finished one’s bottle, the first runner will start to run. Halfway through the journey there is a drinks station where a runner must drink one bottle of beer – under the supervision of an official inspector. After this, the runner will continue to the finish line where the anchorman starts over.
Rounds are repeated until the anchorman has destroyed the last drink (and challenged one’s liver). A team, however, can be disqualified due to an incorrect performance determined by the judge. In this case, the performance must be finished when the error is detected.
Let the thirstiest team win!
