    The Alphabet Party is an annual party organised by various study associations of the University of Groningen. Every year we choose a letter from the alphabet and base a theme on that letter. You can all make up your own costume starting with the letter we chose that year.

    This year the letter is S! You can either dress as a saint or a sinner this Valentine's and come party with us at the Huize Maas. The doors open at 22:30. If you don't have a costume already you can buy one at Confetti. The ticket for the Alphabet Party includes a 10% discount for Confetti.

    To buy a ticket for this party you must sign up! Once you have filled it out you should contact the board of Cover who will give you a physical ticket. Presale tickets are €7 and are available until 11th February. After that, you can buy a ticket at the door for €8.50.

          It's the moment you've all been waiting for! You've been playing Mario Kart for so many years and now finally those skills will pay off! Time to prove who has the best Mario Kart players: Cover or the FMF. There are prizes to be won, including a top prize of glory and honour! (but no seriously, we do have a nice prize for the winner).

          The competition will take place on Friday 11th January in the Study Landscape. There will be several consoles set up for Mario Kart. The tournament will be based on how many games you play and how many points you get in each game.

          Sign up now to enter the tournament for a chance to win prizes, prove your Mario Kart skills, and to have an all round good time. There will also be pizza available for €5. Make sure to sign up soon, the number of places are limited due to the number of consolses available.
