rock ‘n’ rolling the Rickmer Rickmers

Posted on July 20, 2012 by Imke in Hamburg,Social Events

We hope you had as much fun at the conference banquet as the local organizing team and our student assistants did! More than 200 DH 2012 delegates enjoyed excellent food, fine drinks and the great show of Hamburg’s one and only Surf Band Skuzzlebuzz! The crowd was dancing and the party went on until past midnight – but for sure today’s sessions are as exciting as the other ones and you’ll stay awake until the closing session at 16:00.

dragon boating on the alster

Participants  in today’s day-long ADHO executive committee meeting had to put in an unexpected extra hour of hard work by paddling the local organizers across the Alster lake and then through 25 kms of canals in 3 dragonboats. (They should have known better though: one of Hamburg’s partner cities is Shanghai.) Luckily none of the boats capsized – so for now we can still expect the rest of the DH2012 program to go ahead as planned. Here are some first impressions:

You can hear the full story and even more about the university’s history on the historical campus tour on Wednesday, July 18. Sign up now, because this tour is limited to only 20 participants!
