BoT At The Start Of 2021

A mighty fine hello to all you (hopefully holiday relaxed) people out there.

 

After a holiday hiatus, we are back! 😀

 

We made it, we survived 2020 and all it had to throw at us, and turned a corner into 2021. This does not mean the end however, as we can clearly see from what is still going on around us…

With this in mind, we are still, unfortunately, far from a safe time to start exploring physical meetup options again, which is why we are continuing to offer our premium online meetup experience over at the BoT Discord server.

We have some wonderfully dedicated community members ensuring fun and eventful times are had when you are able to join us, from your latest work from home hax to fighting over music playlists and even gaming sessions to cry over how you still can´t get your hands on a new 3090…

 

This means all BoT meetups & regular interactions/chats will be continued across our available virtual environments, on both our Slack ChannelDiscord Server.

 

Until further notice, all monthly meetups will be held online on the 2nd Tuesday of every month.

 

ALL Locations: Tuesday 12th January – Online – From 18:30Discord Server

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

Of course, as we continue to watch carefully how things progress, we will keep you in the loop of new opportunities and new creative events to keep our community buzzing.

 

As always, we are available for you over our many communication channels (email, slack, twitter, etc..), feel free to reach out directly at any time.

Once more, we whole-heartedly thank you for your understanding and continued support in these tough times, and journeying through together only makes it that little bit much easier…

Continue to stay safe, stay healthy, look after each other!

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

Lausanne:  November 10– From 18:30 CET
