Good news everyone,
From Saturday 19 until Sunday 27 July, LUAK is going on zomertreffen to Switzerland in the region of the Grimsel, Furka and Süsten pass. We are all staying at the pleasant campsite Grimselblick in the cozy village of Innertkirchen. Everybody is welcome to come along, regardless of climbing grades, age or experience. Nearby, you can do multipitch climbing, sportsclimbing, bouldering, alpinism, (hiking, swimming, cycling, bookreading and even nothing if you are lazy).
If you are planning on joining us (which you should), please send an email to the famous firstname.lastname@example.org . If you want to join, but can't find a ride over there, come to LUAK evenings or post your ride request on the Luak forum or facebook page.
As a teaser a picture of Bruno, Tobias and Linus taken on top of the Diamand Stocke taken by Kleine Koen.
See you there!!!
The 11th of march the Luak will host a trip report by two awesome belgian climbers, Siebe Vanhee and Tim De Dobbeleer. Whom showed to have big cojones and doing some crazy stuff in the Alps. The presentation will be held by the two climbers at MSI 00.20: Erasmusplein 2, 3000 Leuven. Be there or be square!
Next up: the famous coldfinger weekend! Next Friday evening or Saturday morning we're leaving for Fontainebleau. We'll stay until Sunday night. Fingers crossed for some blue sky high friction, low gravity days!
If you want to join us, come to the LUAK on Thursday night to discuss logistics & car pool arrangements.
Saturday night we'll probably bivy on the Hippodrome field. Bring your own camping cooking supplies if you want to keep it cheap. Join the others for a restaurant (we're known to hijack the pizza place) if you're lazy ;).
Good news every one (as the professor of Futurama would say). Luak is going to the Montafon valley in Austria (Oostenrijk) from Wednesday evening 5 February until Sunday 9 February. LUAK and a certain former LUAK president Mr. De Winne (many thanks) have found a very nice house over there with several rooms, showers, large living/eating room and even children proof. The house is located in Tschaggun which is about 7,5hours driving from Leuven. (http://www.gaestehaus-doblinger.at) More importantly, everybody who likes the mountains at winter time will have something to do:
There are still some left-overs from the Christmas party and next week on Thursday (16 January), LUAK will even provide ice cream and pancakes to support all the students and non students. Be there!
De LUAK wenst al haar leden een gezellige kerst, en hopelijk gaan we in 2014 knalcondities hebben zodat onze goede voornemens en weddenschappen kunnen gehaald worden!
The LUAK wishes a merry christmas to all her members, and hopes for good conditions to climb throughout the year 2014 so all our bets can be climbed!
Christmas is the time of year for all LUAKers to give themselves a present and order their new LUAK clothes. You can choose everything from a catalogue, customize it with LUAK-logo's and then ruin it with a stupid quote (just like me). Best of all, this year we have a genius new ordering system.
1) You feel brave and want to order something special, then fill in this form: Custom order form
2) You feel rather lazy, but you still want to shine in nice LUAK climbing sweater or T-shirt. Especially for you we have made a form for the lazier LUAKer: Lazy peoples ordering form
3) You don't like computers and you certainly don’t trust the internet, because then the government will know what kind of T-shirt you like. Especially for you, there are paper catalogues @ LUAK and order all your favorite clothes by filling in a PAPER form.
