Hello everyone! As you all know, the association battles have all been online till now. However, with the arrival of the new academic year, it’s time to spice things up. So, STORM and NSA welcome you all to the Amsterdam Scavenger Hunt! You will be given a Scavenger kit which will contain the locations you need to visit. Once at the objective, you’ll meet up with one of our members and answer a question. Correct answers result in you getting one step closer to the victory. This is a team activity consisting of 4 members. Consequently, a team with more members will have a higher chance to find all the clues within the prescribed time. So, find as many members from your association as you can and sign up now!
Date: July 3, 2021 Time: 2pm – 6pm Sign-up link Sign up for this event will be available till 25th June
All teams will start at the same time, but from different locations. This is done to prevent clustering in an area and consequently respect the COVID guidelines. We expect you to do the same
