The Secret of Monkey Island

MSVIncognito_SecretOfMonkeyIsland_Poster_website

 

Greetings adventurers!

On Thursday 14/11/2013, Incognito is hosting the Secret of Monkey Island-event.

During this event, you will find yourself situated on Mêlée Island. This island in the middle of the Caribbean is a wonderful but scary place, and your goal here is to become a pirate! In order to be accepted into pirate-hood, you will have to survive three trials.

The first trial will be held in the form of a game which is a combination of ‘the floor is lava’ and ‘tag’. During this game, the island will be filled with obstacles. These obstacles are the only terrain that you can walk on. If you fall off of the obstacles, you die. While this task would seem easy, it is far from that. There are mean pirates that do not want you to become a pirate! They will try to tag you. If they do, you die.

The second trial is to find a hidden treasure that has been buried deep in the ground. But unfortunately, other adventurers want to find this treasure too! It looks like the only good way to solve this matter is a good old game of dodgeball!

The third trial is one where you will have to steal an important artifact from the governor’s mansion! But yet again, those other pesky adventurers are after the same artifact! You will both try to steal it in a ‘Grab the Bacon’-type of game.

Do you think you can do all of this and become a pirate? If you do, register by sending a message in a bottle to aktie@msvincognito.nl and be at Sportzaal Boschpoort (Meutestraat 100, 6219 BL, Maastrich) at 20.00 on Thursday November 14th in your finest pirate clothes to test your skills!

Karaoke Night with AEGEE

When: Tuesday, October 29, 20.30
Where: Café De Twee Heeren (upstairs)

Get ready for (and this is not hyperbole) the GREATEST night of your life. Sing LITERALLY any song you want to sing (note: do not take this phrase literally), while drinking the most potent voice-enhancer known to man (ethanol). Shy about showing off your voice? Don’t worry, there will be more than enough volunteers to drown out your voice with their own (Reminder: insert positive adjective) voices. Anything from K3 to Queen and Frank Sinatra to Grease will be sung and (Reminder: insert something about cultural exchange here).
Best of all: this a joint event between Incognito and AEGEE, so if you’re not into singing you’ll at least get to meet new people, although obviously that is way less cool than karaoke.

The event will be upstairs at De Twee Heeren. The stairs are behind a door, ask someone working there if you can’t find it.

DKE for Dummies

DKEForDummiesEvent

 

On Friday the 4th of October Incognito is organising the “DKE for Dummies” tutoring event.

The main goal of this event is to help out first year students who are struggling with the courses of block 1.

But this doesn’t mean that other students are not welcome! If you have any questions or complaints about DM, IKE or CS1 then feel free to join us

Who will provide tutoring? Students! So, not teachers but students. So far it’s mainly 2nd year students who have volunteered for tutoring.

When: 04-10-2013, 13:30 – 18:00

Where: Common Room, Bouillonstraat 8/10

How to: Find out what you don’t know/don’t understand about the courses (before Friday) and join us in the common room. Ask your questions, get answers and kick ass on the exam!

!**What this event is NOT intended for**!

Quickly catching up on all the material of the courses because you were to lazy to keep up with it. Maybe there are tutors that would like to help you out with this, but it will take too much time if they would do it during the event. In that case, we suggest you make a personal appointment with the tutor on another day.

If there are students that would like to be tutors for this event, then please reply to this e-mail or send an e-mail to aktie@msvincognito.nl

If there are any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us!

Karaoke AEGEE & Incognito

AEGEE-Maastricht & study association Incognito present a karaoke evening together!

It was a dark day Oktober the 3th of this year, despite the joyous occasion of our constitution. We, the XXIVth board of AEGEE-Maastricht failed to secure our presents and it was only thanks to the valiant efforts of MSV Incognito that they managed to keep it safe for us.

To reward the members of incognito for these efforts, and in the hope the members of both our associations can bond we decided to organise this evening for you.

So join up! (if you’re too scared to sing you are allowed to sit quietly in a corner – until you gathered some dutch courage)

The event takes place in the room UPSTAIRS at de Twee Heeren, the stairs are somewhat hidden so ask at the bar if you cannot find them.
