VFB Stuttgart finished their opening round of the UEFA cup in style beating Budapest 4-0 in Stutgart on Thursday, 7-1 aggregate. What an amazing game! VFB was all over them the whole game and the score could have easily been 10-0, definately worth the price of admission. We'll be planning a MBA VFB game trip sometime this semester (possibly the Bochum game or Breman if we can get tickets). It's a great deal since tickets can go for less than 12 euros and the train ride to Stuttgart and back is totally free with the ticket! Stay tuned!

There's a bunch of other stuff we're planning for this semester, here's a brief list of some of the highlights:

We start it off with the official annoucement (which most of you will get tomorrow at the welcomeing meeting) of the first "MBA Hockey Night in Pforzheim" of the 2004 Fall semester!! This is THE best night of the year where a bunch of MBA's, many who can't even skate, get together to try out their on-ice scoreing skills. The deets:

- Friday October 8th 9:30 PM
- Pforzheim rink, directions (or ask), 15 minute walk down karl-friedrick from Irish Pub, 60 second (free with student card) bus ride (bus stop across from Irish pub)
- 10 euros all inclusive (skates, rink fee, use of stick etc)
- reservations at Irish Pub right after the game
- anyone with extra knee, elbow, helmets or sticks please bring them
- space is LIMITED and on a first cum first serve basis, you can reserve your place by talking to me in person or sending me an e-mail
- Hope to see you all there!

The Volksfest (in Stuttgart Cannstatter) runs this year from Sept 25th to Oct 10th. I think there's a Gemini travel event there this weekend (the last weekend) ans the MBA's will probably be heading that way anyways since it's a great time (for confirmation just check out the hangover levels from the last couple weekends when people went).

Ryanair, German Wings and sometimes Easyjet usually have free or very cheap tickets (around 40 euros after taxes) to destinations around europe. We're going to be takeing a vote tomorrow on desired destinations and it looks like the Dec 2nd weekend.

The MBA students committee meeting will also be announced tomorrow. The students committee is there to help improve the program, plan social events (such as the above) and also provides a link to professors, faculty and administration. All MBA students are able to join (the more help the merrier!). The first meeting is important as we'll be having elections, voting on social events, discussing the alumni weekend and setting an agenda for the semester. We meet tomorrow after the 12 noon meeting.

Finally, tomorrow night is the annual "pub crawl" where the entire university meets at 8PM at the HBF (main train station) to split into groups and tour the various pubs and hot spots around Pforzheim. We'll be starting the MBA group at Irish Pub, which is the centre of the universe on Wednesday nights as you will soon find out, and working our way around from there.

More to cum later, but for now a warm welcome to all the new MBA's/IMP's as well as a hearty cheers to all the old timers :-)
