BoT In November

Hello to all,

 

The last few weeks have seen, once more, a lot of changes in the way we are able to live day to day life. And after further careful discussion and consideration, the board here at DC4131 have concluded that we are to stop all physical meetups of the BoTs around the nation for the foreseeable future, until such a time again where demonstrable improvement and safety for the community can be ensured to be able to meet up in a socially safe manner. This decision, as all other hard decisions in the past, has not been taken lightly, but we are fully aware of pros & cons to such stances, but we only sincerely act in our community’s best interests and well-being at heart. Of course, we will continue to monitor the situation as it progresses slowly and provide updates once again when other opportunities become available.

 

Having said that, we are not just disappearing! This means all BoT meetups & chats will be continued across our available virtual environments, on both our Slack ChannelDiscord Server. We are confident that you members of our fine community will still encourage and provide a great social environment on dates on which you can attend, after all at this point, we should be all quite used to sharing a drink through a screen… 😉

 

Virtual events currently scheduled/proposed for November:

Berne:    November 03 – From 18:30 CET

Chur:  November 03 –  From 18:30 CET

Zurich:  November 10 –  From 18:30 CET

BoT In October

Greetings DC4131’rs

 

For many, the ending of this year can’t come soon enough,  and we are 1 more month down that road…and it’s October, you know what that means….. HALLOWEEN baby! And if it’s not happening in it’s full representation, this means only more sweets for us! mwhahaa 😀

 

We continue to work hard in the background to bring you as many opportunities and options to meet one another, safely, to get that hacking itch off your chest and show off your latest sploits to the family around you 🙂

 

PLEASE NOTE: There are once more some changes that affect certain locations so be sure to read through carefully the below to see how they may impact you.

For those locations that are not able to provide a physical meetup just yet, fret not as the online meetup options are still available (Discord Server etc…) and we are continually working on making regular physical meetups again as soon as it is safe and available to do so.
