Okay, I’ll have to admit that I’m a bit late… But starting this newsletter I want to wish everyone a nice holiday! And good luck to the people who are still studying hard for re-exams!
In the Planning
During summer it’s time for the summer trainings, with all sorts of crazy games, challenges and courses. This results in something new and exciting every Wednesday. The coming trainings will be:
- 9-08-2017 – Knotting cursus
- 16-08-2017 – PUT YOUR TRAINING HERE!
- This year we’ll again try to make a much people enthusiastic about All Terrain as we can during the intro week. Starting from the 21th of August we’ll participate in multiple events around the TU/e campus. We’re still looking for a many volunteers, so if you have some spare in time between Monday and Thursday, please go to this event and subscribe! To remove possible excuses: you don’t need to be able to speak Dutch for this.
- In the week of the 28th of August, Ultiem will take place. If you found yourself in a place that you would still like to join, send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The past month
An ingenious game that involved using a catapult to launch water balloons on self made fires. The balloons could be earned by doing a parkour with the balloon. The fires had to be made during the ‘peace-time’ using only natural found stuff, which was quite a challenge since it had just rained. The training was organized by Gar.
In the above photo, the heat of the moment is captured as Bram chases Tom. AT-GO is requires a lot of tactics and a good endurance in order to find the bad guys or to flee from the police. One team’s goal is to find objects on a map across the TU/e campus while they are being hunted by two other teams. This summer training was organized by Emile.
A new obstacle for the construction: the salmon ladder. In the above picture Gerard shows how the obstacle he made is done. The salmon ladder requires a lot of strength and concentration to fulfill and sure is not something that everyone can easily complete. So it is a nice and difficult addition to the construction.
To celebrate that we’re a cozy and fun student sport organization we organized a constitution drink. This tradition follows a lot of rules and strengthens the bonds with other associations. On the sixth of May we blew the roof off at the KIX. The picture above is displaying a broken climbing handle from ESAC, it split perfectly in half. It resembles the way we split from ESAC a 26 years ago.
For all those still struggling with their exams, we wish you the best of luck! In a little more than one week it will all be over and you can enjoy your well-deserved summer vacation. In this mail you can find an overview of all the cool things that are thus far announced to take place during the vacation!
Events during the vacation
In the coming week and during the summer vacation there will still be several events organized by All Terrain. The most closest of which is the constitution drink of the new board (6th of July). During the vacation itself a BBQ will be organized (22nd of July) and even a whole vacation to an unknown destination.
Constitution drink of the 27th board of All Terrain
One of the weirder traditions of any student association is a constitution drink. This drink is an opportunity to wish the new board good luck with their lack of free time in the coming year. The drink will take place in the evening on the 6th of July in the KIX café on stratums eind. Our sister associations from other cities from across the country will also be present!

AT / OT BBQ
On the 26th of July All Terrain will organize a BBQ for all members of All Terrain. This BBQ is particularly special because Old Terrainers are also invited. The BBQ will take place in “Op Noord”, a sportcomplex in the Northern part of Eindhoven. More details will follow.
Go to event
During the summer, All Terrain will go on vacation. Each year a vacation trip is organized to an unknown destination. The event is organized by all those who wish to participate. If you are interested to join, register on the site and you can get your own say in what you are going to do and where.

Trainings and other activities during the vacation
During the summer vacation the ordinary trainings will not take place. Fortunately, often members and the board themselves will organize something nice every now and then.
Thus far there have already been several plans in the making.
- AT GO (interactive game with running)
- Mini Adventure Race (preparations for the All Terrain Challenge)
- Knots training (A refreshment of knowledge from the course earlier this year)
The specifics of these activities will follow. If you yourself have a good idea for a nice activity or substitute for a training the board is really interested to hear. You have our phone number, otherwise you can also contact us via our E-mail: email@example.com
The past month was a special month for us. For the first time, ever, All Terrain organized its own survival run. In hindsight it was nothing but a succes! And we have you all to thank for that. Many of you volunteered during the run and we are gratefull for it. The results and photos of the the run can be found on the website of the run.
Hello All Terrain,
While we continue like madman on the organization of our own run. The constant flow of activities will never end! Here, you can find a bit of information for what’s to come and what’s been done.
For the planning
Only two weeks left until our very own run! For this we could still use some more volunteers. So for more information, you can go to: All Terrain Survival Challenge.
Survival Run Utrecht
For the survival run in Utrecht on the 13th of June we are able to fill 10 spots. But be quick to register, because they are wanted! Registration can be done here: Simius Hircus Run
With the summer getting nearer, it is time to start with the organization of Ultiem. This is our summer holiday for student prizes. If you are interested in this holday, register yourself on the event and we will initiate the organization of the holiday. Event: Ultiem
In the past
Survivalstrijd Delft en SurviFELrun Nijmegen
At the runs of Delft on the 13th of may and the run in Nijmegen on the 22th of may, we did a very good job at not becoming last on a survivalrun. The start has been made, this trend can be continued in order to beat our sister associations at our own run!
During HOLHOW (which stands for: The Incredibly Long Ascension-day Outdoor Weekend) we were able to enjoy beautiful weather near the idealistic village of IJzendijke. During the weekend we conquered the sandy beaches of Zeeuws-Vlaanderen and played lots of games. Concluding, it was a very nice weekend! Photo’s will be uploaded soon!
Since the lustrum party of the SSC will be today, the training was canceled. In order to keep us of the streets, a nice BBQ was organized. And all of that on one day.
Coming Wednesday May 31st the SSC will be celebrating their 50 year anniversary. Due to this there will be no All Terrain training on this day.
Instead, the training will be on Tuesday the 30th of May at 19.30 (gather at 19.15).
Hello All Terrain,
The honorable task of providing all of you with some information has been past with the previous GA. So this will be the first attempt in doing so.
In the month of April we have been occupied with preparations of the GA. We also had some food, a diving exchange and the Batavierenrace.
International Cooking Night
To celebrate the diversity within the association we organized an International Cooking Night. On the first of April we were able to enjoy all sorts of food and drinks which we, together with 15 people, put our very best effort in.
The diving workshop on the 14th of April was in the swimming pool of the SSCE. Although most All Terrainers usually make a lot of noise, the water provided a nice moment of rest. Thanks to the efforts of Scyllus and the organizational skills of Michiel and Femke, the night turned into a great success.
First Friday Training
On the 21th of April, the first Friday training took place. The training is meant to raise the general level of skill to be able to compete with the other Student Survival Associations.
On the 24th of April, we once again gathered at the Trafalgar to elect a new board. With a lot of proud I can introduce you to the 27th board of All Terrain:
– Bram Hurkmans as chairman
– Justin Szanto as secretary
– Michelle van Grinsven as treasurer
– Shin Aung as officer activities
– Bart van Assem as officer public and relations
In the planning
For those who would like to visit Enschede (again), because they did not join the Bata. We will have an exchange with our sister student survival association Tartaros. This can be combined to a full weekend with a BBQ and a Survival Run in Oldenzaal. Be quick to subscribe yourselves on the website!
To celebrate that we were able to find a new board yet again and since we’re all students that don’t need a lot of reason to throw a party, we will have another constitution drink. The date will be announced soon.
– Delft: Survival Strijd, 13th May
– Nijmegen: SurviFELrun, 22 May
– Eindhoven: All Terrain Survival Challenge, 10 June
– Utrecht: Uithof Survivalrun, 14 June
Hello All and Old Terrain,
I almost forgot but I am just in time. Here is the newsletter for the month of March.
The past month was nice and quiet, the reason for this being to prepare for all the awesome events we have planned for April. We still did something to put in the review though.
As elegant as this has no All Terrainer ever been, this month we had an exchange with the people from aerial silks and received a nice workshop from them. High in the curtains we were explained how to get ourselves into all sorts of beautiful poses. The pictures from this can be found right here on the website.
In the planning
April is going to be a fun month, and after this it is only going to get better! To spare you a bit I will explain the biggest events down here.
There is a lot of fun to be had underwater. To learn how to do this the nice people over at diving association Scyllus will teach us on the 14th of april. We will take it easy though and remain in the safety of the pool.
Running, for some it is therapeutic while for others it is an hellish task. This did not stop us though when we decided to subscribe for the batavierenrace this year. Our team is complete and you can find us on the 28th of April on the starting line. Hopefully you can also find us again the next day somewhere close to the finish line as well.
General Members Assembly
It is with mixed feelings that I tell you that this will most likely be the last newsletter that I will be making for all of you. This is because on the 24th of April we will have our yearly GMA. Besides showing everybody what we did and achieved this year will this also be the moment for all of you to choose a new board for the year to come.
All Terrain Survival Challenge
The hints have been given and now I am here to confirm it: On the 10th of June All Terrain will have his very own survivalrun! An absolutely epic event where all students throughout the Netherlands will compete to show they can survive the obstacles we put in their way. For this we will need a lot of volunteers though. If you are willing to help us out you can click this shiny button:
But there is also another option, you can also compete yourself and for this you can click another shiny button:

Apparently it is time for the student runs. All the next runs we have in our agenda are runs made by our sister associations.
|Delft||13 May||5 and 9 km|
|Nijmegen||22 May||5.5 km|
|Eindhoven||10 June||5 and 7 km|
|Utrecht||13 June||6.5 km|
Good news, the Mountainbike season has arrived! So grab your bike from the shed and join our Monday rides! From March 27th until October 23th we have the weekly mountainbike training. We gather in front of the sports center (SSC), every Monday, at 6 PM. Be in time, we leave at 6 PM to trails in the vicinity of Eindhoven!
During the training we will focus on improvement of bike techniques and controlling the bike. This will be combined with small competitions and parts of mountain bike tracks that are present around Eindhoven. The training is set up in such a way that everybody can join and improve their skills in mountain biking at their own level and pace.
No mountain bike of your own yet? No problem, just send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
See you on the Monday 27th!
The mountainbike trainings are made possible by our awesome trainers: Gilles, Lidewij and Bram
Hello All and Old Terrainers!
Febrauri, although not the most special of months, it certainly was not boring.
This month we went on in playing together with our sister associations.
In the weekend from the 17th untill the 19th of February we had the National Student Survival Weekend. A weekend full of fun and sports in and around camping farm the Runsvoort. Together with as many people as possible from Slopend, Simius Hircus, Tartaros, NSSV FEL and of course All Terrain we tried to make the weekend as much fun as possible, and it sure was a lot of fun.
Exchange NSSV FEL
Not seeing our friends from other cities for more than a week is of course awfully long. A week after the NSSW all associations gathered to the training grounds of NSSV FEL in Nijmegen. Coincidentally it was also carnaval, meaning after the training the costumes came out and the inner city of Nijmegen was visited as well.
In the planning
Unfortunately March will be a quiet one. But this is only because we are getting even better activities in April!
International Cooking Night
By now most of you know All Terrainers like good food. A nice evening we have for this is the International Cooking Night. The idea is that everybody brings something from their home town. Since not everybody is as ‘international’, everybody is allowed to be as creative as they want to be.
On the 14th of April we have something special. On that day, diving association Scyllus will teach us the basics of diving. Nice and safely in a pool but a lot of fun and informative.
This year All Terrain will, together with ESAC, join the batavierenrace again. This is the largest relay race in the world, starting in Nijmegen and finishing all the way up in Enschede. We will be running deep in the night on the 28th and reach our destination a lot of hours later: a party of the size you would expect of a race this big.
Gendringen has been completed, the next run is already fixed and subscriptions keep on going.
|Zeist||19 maart||4,5 till 9 km|
|Delft||13 mei||5 and 9 km|
It took us a while but we’re finally ready for the first Friday training!
For those whom don’t know what the friday training is, it is an extra survivalrun-training. This training is for those whom want to train more than just once a week (so it is not meant to be an alternative for the Wednesday). For more information you can also check out the Training Sessions page
