First Hash Run after The End of the World

International Women's Club Bratislava

If you are new in town and need help to settle down in Bratislava, the International Women's Club Bratislava (IWCB) can help you to make contacts in the international community. Moreover, the club arranges programs for your leisure time and your children through a variety of interesting games. With almost 200 members, hailing from 31 countries, the club includes foreigners as well as Slovaks.
The IWCB meets every Tuesday at the Hotel Danube from 10:30 to 13:00 for Coffee mornings. You can join half priced coffee, cakes but check which room the meeting is in at the notice board because the room changes from week to week. Children are welcome. The IWCB will also hold a newcomer's coffee on February 8.
In addition, the IWCB meets on a monthly basis in a General Meeting. This month the meeting will be held at Hotel Danube on Monday, January 17, starting at 18:30. This first meeting in 2000 will also be accompanied by the entertainment of young Slovak Philharmonic musician Martin Krajzo. Other guests include Robert Meško, director of Bratislava Dance Theatre, famous for its contemporary dance performances. Mesko will bring videos providing the guests a glimpse of their new show "3ex", which will be performed through January and February in Slovakia including one performance in New York.
Other January activities include a IWCB organised benefit concert by the chamber orchestra Capella Istropolitana to support the Down Syndrome Society in Bratislava. The concert, held under the auspices of Jozef Moravčík, Mayor of Bratislava, will take place at Primaciálny Palace, The Mirror Hall on January 11, starting at 18. Guests will be given upon arrival a glass of champagne. Down Syndrome Society is a Non-Government Organisation consisting of parents, experts and friends who seek to protect the rights of individuals with down syndrome.


First Hash Run after The End of the World

All those back to work after the Christmas Holiday are invited to a Hash Run, the first in 2000. The Hash Run is not only for young, athletic men, but also for the older generation, business women and foreigners men and women alike. The highlight for most is after a good run everyone gathers for a beer or two. All are welcome and it's a great way to meet new people. The first run is January 22 at 13:30.
The location will be clarified in coming days. For the more information call Erika, T. 54 41 16 17
