************** Additional Events Info **************

As you may have noticed above, we have a brand spanking new DC4131 BoT location! Tobias “floyd” Ospelt and company will be taking the charge on providing the cool and relaxed DC4131 BoT atmosphere you have come to know and love from around the country. If you are living/working close to Chur, or just have the time and fancy a nice evening trip, support these guys with your presence and have a cold one in another beautiful part of our great country. Best wishes to the guys there! 🙂

****************************

On the back of our last Defcon DC4131 Dojo event in April, the 2nd iteration is quickly coming upon us in June! It was previously advertised that these events from now on would be members only….(become a member if you are not already! 😉 ), but due the sheer positive and constructive feedback and experience the pioneers who were there had, we have decided to keep this next round still open to all, the masses, the people! So feel free to join and invite all your friends. Details are below and will be updated on our main Defcon website:

Time: From 18:30

Date: Wednesday 19th June

Place: e-Paradise, Altstetten

Event Topic: RFID / NFC Hacking, with the usual side of lock picking, mini drone flying, plus more…..

****************************

And FINALLY, we are now on Slack! 🙂 Come join, say hi and have direct chat access to all the l33t haxors of Switzerland.

* COMING SOON UP!* 

Our annual DC4131 hike is becoming a tradition. So once again this is your chance to get away from monitors and keyboards. The primary date is Saturday, September 8th 2018. Backup date on bad weather is Sunday, September 23rd 2018.

This year’s hike will be done close to Eigenthal in the canton of Lucerne. We have at least two routes there and will choose based on who is participating. Attendees should be prepared for a 3-4 hour hike with around 500m up-/downhill. After the hike we will finish the day with a BBQ outdoors at one of the many fireplaces in the region.

If you’re in, then please sign up on the following Doodle until Monday September 3rd. The hike is open for everyone. If you want to bring colleagues or your better half then please sign them up separately: https://defcon-switzerland.us1.list-manage.com/track/click?u=b56c8e27c94f702e359ac0086&id=9387a5cc34&e=6c4303d0ed

Equipment:
– Solid hiking boots and if available walking sticks
– Rain protection (even for good weather forecast)
– Sun protection (cap, sunglasses, sun cream)
– Backpack with enough to drink for the hike and food for the day and the BBQ

We will define the details (exact times, how to get there, weather
conditions) on Thursday, September 6th and send them those who signed up via Doodle (see above).

Hope to see many of you there!
