From now on, only 90 people are allowed to be present in de 'Salon' at the same time. This is the set amount from the fire department, and in the coming weeks, we are looking into ways of increasing this number together with the department and fire department. We hope for your understanding. 

Fluxtrum drink

Last Thursday, the Fluxtrum drink took place. As you may have noticed, less people were allowed in the Borrelrooms than usual. We would like to apologize for the inconvenience. This is due to a discrepancy between the FSE rules and the department rules. The next days, the department will look into the numbers and we will announce the correct amount as soon as possible.
