Lost and Found

Last period different weekend activities such as the Simonkamp and a Land Yacht weekend took place. Many things were left behind around De Werf and De Simonkamer. We found sleeping bags, food trays and even safety shoes. Get your stuff from the roll container in De Werf before Monday the 22nd otherwise everything will be thrown away!

Welding masterclass at VDL ETG

Last week a welding masterclass took place at the workplace of VDL ETG. With twelve novice welders from our association we visited the factory to improve our welding skills. The evening started with a lecture about the different welding techniques we were going to practice. After that a small tour through the factory was given. Then the welding could begin. Under the guidance of five experienced welders we learned the ins and outs of the art of welding. In the end the welding skills of the participants have definitely improved!
