Members of Unitas and the Wageningen Student Alpine Club Ibex battled side by side in an exciting integration adventure race on Monday evening. Forty-four participants in various teams pitched their prowess against one another in events such as beer tasting, climbing, DJ-ing, play-acting and searching for 'avalanche victims' at different locations in Wageningen. Each team comprised three Ibexers and three Unitassers - a combination of sluggish hippies and friendly giants.
Inside a dark building, teams with headlamps and avalanche beacons searched for a hidden sensor. 'It has to be here somewhere', exclaimed an Ibexer with a device beeping madly in his hands. 'I can't see anything at all', yelled a long hair Unitasser in panic. They ended up finding a victim in the ceiling, above a tell-tale crooked ceiling board.
Come midnight, many can be found at 'De Dikke Draak' Lodge, chatting over a glass of beer. Asked what he thought about Ibexers, a Unitasser replied: 'They just can't keep still. They like to be here, there and everywhere and they clamber all over the place.' Another added: 'They are very nice, kind of like friendly giants.'
An Ibexer responded: 'Unitassers are a bit like sluggish hippies who smoke dope and drink a lot, but are relaxed anyway.' The Uni-bexers did agree on one thing though: all of them are somewhat alternative.
