Take-off! Time for the aula, time to look for nearby climbing halls (;)) and time to announce one of multiple events ahead.
Thursday the 23th of November, our little country's crack climbs, and our club, will have a visit of Pete Whittaker the British world-class climber.
There should be plenty of 'cracking' stories, solo shenanigans, taking the piss out of Tom (as he's not there), and the odd Huber impression thrown in for good measure. Should be a laugh!
Luak's open every Thursday night. Moreover starting from next week there will be lots of introductory opportunities.
Soon the academic year takes off again. LUAK will dedicate the first three LUAK evenings to introduction. These nights will be the ideal moment to get acquainted with our students club. Of course all existing members are also welcome and memberships can be renewed.
You find more info on the poster (left) and on Facebook (links below). Besides you can pre-register on our website and already access some extra pages. The evenings are followed by introduction rock days. We might see you soon!
In about four weeks we'll have our barbecue! It's the chance to say goodbye, with music, and conclude our 45th schoolyear, (make summer plans!), propose the LUAK board for next year, and generally assemble ourselves. So if you have comments and ideas you can also discuss them.
We bring the fire, the cold drinks and extra 'nutrition' with plates. You bring something to put on the fire, and preferably some reusable cutlery.
The summermeet was quite talked about last weeks.
Some checked agendas, family's or boyfriend's agendas. Some wondered if Chamonix Mont-Blanc is as daunting as it sometimes looked... (If you mean 'not accessible': nope!).
For further practical organisation we now kindly invite all the interested people to fill in this form where we collect your contact e-mail, your wishes and your possible plans, for the sake of further communication and planning.
PS: You might already seek mountain boots and glacier sunglasses.
Yesterday, special act Mangroove shook our headquarters!
No one expected the spell to strike sudden as it did. Jammed together we were taken in a vortex by the guiding singer and ever improvising musicians (like our very own surprise Linus on the Alto Sax)! A party that for many just didn't stop.
We can already announce that the BBQ will be held on Friday the 30th of June at 7pm. Ride out those last deadlines and good luck studying!
Dear climber-musicians and -dancers,
Friday it's time again for an official party! You may expect live acts inside, fiery stuff outside. Friends are also very welcome! Entrance is free.
Next, LUAK saves its special activities till the barbecue. As chestnuts are starting to throw shadows over our streets, exams are approaching. Consequently we'll try not to tempt each other into non-studying activities, when the evenings feel already hot, and dark is late. Then again, everyone is still welcome Thursday nights!
Spring is bursting in and exams are ogling. Summer is far-off, then again, we can already make minimal plans for the great summer when we get together. The place to be is Chamonix Mont-Blanc!
The region holds a lot of opportunities for alpinism, but the forests also hide diverse rock climbing crags. Moreover here you can find boulders, trailruns, hiking trails and the greenblue Lac Blanc (what's in a name).
- Read for multiday alpinism explorations.
- Get in shape for granite and gneiss.
- And save the date: 15th - 23th of July.
Yesterday the annual Belgian Student Boulder Championship was held! Consequently, our club sent a delegation to Ghent.
In the women's competition Liuba won gold for the KULeuven. In the men's competition Koen and Hendrik shared the 8th rank, for the honour of-respectively-the KULeuven and the UC Leuven-Limburg.
Congrats to everyone who participated in the game. Now back to rock climbing.
To conclude our rock climbing initiation sessions, we will be going to Freyr for the weekend! The weather forecast seems to be favorable, so there is no excuse not to come. Remember to bring a tent, sleeping bag and mat since we will be sleeping at the bivouac, or you can always try to claim a spot in the tent of another LUAK member.
We encourage you to come by the clubhouse this Thursday to arrange the carpooling. If this is not possible, you can always contact a member of the board.
The new Academic Year of 2016-2017 is about to start!
We have yet again planned a ton of activities for this year, so be sure to check out the Calendar!
The LUAK is already open again every Thursday at 22:00, so we hope to see you there. The first Info Evening is planned on the 29th of September. New members, mark this date!
