Hey folks, we are KlimOp. We are the climbing committee of MaasSAC and in this little bit you get to know who we are, what we do, when we do it and why we are the most important committee within MaasSAC (according to ourselves).

We are Brechje, Celine, Charlotte, Nika and Nils. 4 climbing gals and 1 climbing guy (we need more guys, help!). Currently a fun and loving group of 5 members. And we can all be found climbing and bouldering almost every week at Ivy and Radium. By coincidence most of us are in different years of med school, and one of us is doing econometrics & OR.

KlimOp’s main responsibility are the IV-courses and the OV-course. Besides that, we are responsible for the Les Calanques trip made in the carnival break. We are the first line for everything climbing related for all members of MaasSAC. To make sure all of this goes well, we have 2 meetings a month on average. During these meetings we cook and eat dinner together and afterwards we discuss and decide what is important for future or past events. But besides the serious meetings, we also tend to have fun. Even outside official KlimOp duties we meet up and hang out, play games, eat together, hang together and just have an all-around great time. We laugh a lot together in both serious and fun meetings.

We are very active and involved within MaasSAC and most members will get in contact with us through either one of the many activities we set up each year or any of the other activities made possible by the other committees.

If you ever feel the need to talk to us you can just approach any of us when you see us at Ivy, Radium or just in Maastricht. Or you can mail us at KlimOp@maassac.nl

Much love from KlimOp

Once upon a time, in a magical fairy forest there lived a mother deer with her deer baby… I don’t actually know how the story goes but I think it has a relatively sad start so I will stop here and inform you all that though it might seem so at first glance, we did not name our bouldering committee after
a Disney movie. In fact, BAMBI stands for Bouldering Activates MaasSAC Beyond Infinity* and we are MaasSAC’s youngest committee – barely older than a year! We were born out of the exponential rise in popularity of bouldering as an actual sport and not just a form of training for outdoor climbing and are in charge of everything bouldering related. We organise our bi-yearly trips to Fontainebleau, weekend day trips to outdoor boulder areas such as Ruhrtal and the Aachen Campus bouldering gym when the weather is bad, as well as the odd social event or fun bouldering challenge. This year, for the first time, we also had a bouldering trip running parallel to the yearly carnival week climbing expedition to the Calanques in southern France. We are always on the look-out for interested and enthusiastic new members, so don’t hesitate to contact us if you’d like to join! Our meetings are generally lots of fun and yet still somehow productive.

*There is also a second meaning to the name, but that knowledge remains the privilege of only the selected few BAMBI members themselves

As some of you might remember, Adrenaline is the committee MaasSAC used to issue newsletters four times a year, but due to a lack of members there sadly haven’t been any for quite a while. Some of us now took the project on us to revive this newsletter and from now on we’ll feed you with some articles at the first day of every new month.

There will always be one update about what amazing things we did in the month before, one fun story and one article on a more general climbing matter. Also, we will try to keep you updated which events are coming up soon. If you yourself have any ideas, things you want to know about or want to contribute a piece, you are more than welcome to shoot us a message and get involved.

If you have something to share with all MaasSAC’ers, are interested to join our committee or if you have questions please contact us: adrenaline@maassac.nl

Like any other association, MaasSAC also celebrates its anniversary. But, every five years we celebrate this in a more special way which we call the lustrum! The lustrum party is a day filled with awesome activities, great food and lots of fun. It is also a way for the older and younger generations of MaasSAC to get to know each other and bond over our mutual passion for climbing and the outdoors!

Usually during the lustrum year, the SAC will organize the National Student Climbing Championships (NSK lead or NSK boulder). We hope to be able to organize this somewhere the upcoming years in our beautiful Maastricht!
