We are proud to announce our upcoming event, the 10-year anniversary celebration of the joint Society! Please complete the reply slip [link] and pay for any non-members as soon as possible because there are strict security measures in place at the Residence. We have to submit a list of names a week in advance, and anyone who cannot identify themselves and is not on the list will not be admitted.
Could those who have already registered also fill out the slip, in particular making sure that the name of their guest is clearly entered? Spaces are limited, so first come, first served, and preference will be given to members and valued friends.
Dear Alumni, the Committee has decided to reinstate our monthly get-together in Den Haag! The gatherings will take place every last Tuesday of each month at 8 pm at Millers (for more information see Regular Events).
Starting date/time/location: April 26th, 2016. 8 pm. Millers. Look out for two tall Germans (Matthias and Johannes).
The idea behind the gatherings is to allow Oxford and Cambridge alumni to meet others living in their area for conversation, drinks, dinner, whatever is desired. Anyone with an Oxford or Cambridge connection is welcome, no matter whether an expatriate working here or a Dutch former Oxbridge student. You do not need to be a member of The Oxford and Cambridge Society of the Netherlands. If you wish, you can contact someone on the committee to find out more about the plans or the locations, but otherwise feel free just to turn up. Someone from the committee will anyway be present at the gathering whenever possible.
Looking forward to meeting you,
Dear Alumni, we would like to remind you that you can receive a small discount on ferry trips to the UK offered by Stena Line. Just start your booking from the page http://www.stenaline.nl/oxbridge and the discount should be automatically applied.
Here a save-the-date for our 10-year anniversary reception on July 1st, to

wish to register already, please send the secretary an email (secretary.OCNL@gmail.com).

Just a reminder that we meet in the Wine Bar Pierre not in Wassenaar (there was an error in the email), but in Wine Bar Pierre in Dennweg 11, 2514CB Den Haag. The tasting will start at 7:30pm on 3 December. The wine bar will be busy that night, so we will meet at the very end of the wine bar, in the separate room.
