Do you want to become active? Let us know!
As an active member at the MARUG, you do not only develop yourself on a professional level, it is also a lot of fun! Every first Thursday of the month, the MARUG social takes places in 't Vaatje. A lot of (active) MARUG members drop by and have a drink. Next to that, the Promotion and Activities Committee (the PAC) organizes events especially for active members, such as the Active Members Weekend. To finish your committee period, you will enjoy a dinner with the MARUG board as a special thanks for all your effort.
Every first Thursday of the month, the legendary MARUG socials take place in 't Vaatje. These socials are well-attended and they are the perfect occassion to get to know the other members much better. During the socials new committees will be introduced, and the MARUG member of the month will be announced. Also, not eniterly unimportant, you can drink beer, wine and sodas for only €0,50 until 1AM!
To make sure that all the active members get to know each other, the PAC organizes an active members weekend at the beginning of the year. This it the perfect opportunity to meet the other committees. This year, the Active Members Weekend took place on the 7th and 8th of November 2020. Every year, the PAC comes up with a nice theme. To give you an idea, last year's theme was 'MARUG on tour: all around the world'.
'Sinterklaas' is the Dutch holiday everyone gets excited about. At the MARUG, we do not let this moment pass. During PACjesavond, Sinterklaas comes by to visit all our active members. He will recite a nice poem, which will reveal all the ins and outs of the active members. This year, PACjesavond took place on the 3th of December 2020. When Sinterklaas leaves, the monthly social will start.
To start the new year with a bang, an Active Members Activity is organized. Several teams will battle against each other, during three different activities: lasergaming, bowling and playing pool. Of course there will be a prize for the winning time. This event is completely free of charge, and there are even some drinks included. Reason enough to sign up! This year the active members activity will take place on the 12th of March!
Every year, the Active Members Barbeque is organized by the PAC. All former and new active members will be there to flip a burger and drink some beer in the sun. This year, the active members BBQ will take place on the 21st of May, 2021.
