(No, but really. We got a LOT of money a few GAs ago for this, so we're gonna spend it all on bitterballen. Like, if we spend all of the assigned money, there will be 400 normal and 400 vegetarian bitterballen. So yes, there will be vegetarian bitterballen as well, so there is some for everybody. Next to that, we also have the standard free drinks during the TAD. Stop by for some fun time and a lot of bitterballen. We still have the bar system, so as long as the bar is in the room, there is still TAD money left.)

We, RoomCee, hope to see you there!
