Committee Spotlight: Activity Committee Extraordinaire
The **ACE ** (Activity Committee Extraordinair) has a big activity coming up so here's a highlight of them! Answers were given by Puck Kemper, the Chairman of the committee.
What is the name of your committee and give a short description.
Our committee, the ACE, is the Activity Committee Extraordinaire! We organize extraordinary and epic activities within Proto.
What is the appeal of being an ACE-member compared to other activity-organizing-committees?
I think it's the level of organization of some events. For example, our next big event, the AmACEing rACE took a lot of time and brainstorming, but it's going to be AmACEing! This makes the ACE a more challenging, but also more fun committee to be in.
Why did you decide to join the ACE?
I really liked doing the First Year Committee when I first joined Proto and was invited to join the ACE and immediately wanted to do so. Organizing activities is just something I enjoyed so much, and I wanted to take it to another level.
How do you come up with the ideas for these activities?
Haha, at the beginning of each year we do a brainstorm. This is usually an evening where we eat together at someone's place and then we try to think of a lot of cool ideas for activities, no limitations (while enjoying some beers). We get so many crazy ideas then, and only the best will be executed.
If you had infinite resources available, what kind of crazy activity would you organize?
I'd go for something like renting out an abandoned building and have a team-up paintball fight against each other. It would last 3 days and be an epic battle!!
Your next activity is the AmACEing RACE, what is that all about? Why should people sign up?**
As said before it's the AmACEing Race so it's going to be amACEing! You'll participate in teams of 4 people following clues all over Twente and racing each other to make it back the fastest while doing all the tasks. It's going to be very exciting, so people should definitely join if they want a fun day where they can beat the other teams by being clever and strong and win an amazing prize! I don't want to spoil anything about the prize but it's going to be a set of 4 awesome and maybe flying things? Just sign up!
Do you have a nice anecdote or fact about the committee?
The fun thing is that all members joined last year or this year, so we are a lot of fresh meat. But we have all the knowledge we need to make every activity a success!
