New activities and expansion of current sport events
From April onwards after a short break, we start again with a Tango course with our teacher Marcella.
We will dance in the bistro room of the quarter meeting point Lola, on the sound from Argentina and perform dancing steps on a well-known Tango.
In order to have an equal number of men and women, we hope that you will be able to take your own partner with you.
If you want to try once, you are welcome !
On the 28th of April, we like to visit a special event at a comfortable meeting point for Craft beer. The Volta-Bar will organize a tastery (Note: there are costs associated !) of brewed Craft beers from our region or from other small breweries.
It's a pleasure that one can't lose oneself in such a kind and polite ASK-group !
ASK does an important work in integration which is being rewarded with the second prize!
After our organization has received the prestigious volunteer award called "Schappo" from the Basel City canton in 2014, we got another milestone. ASK has received this year the second prize "Basler Integration Award".
The sponsorship gives the prize to various organizations and individuals in recognition of the efforts of easing the daily issues of integration into the society, reducing prejudice and fear of contact and advancing equal rights and opportunities of all people living in Basel, regardless of origin , language or lifestyle.
New offers and extension the existing sports
From mid-October 2016 ASK introduces two completely new deals in the health sector (Black Rolls and Kempo) as well as two additional courses in volleyball and badminton. Yoga is now offered in the morning for seniors. In the evening, the "youngsters" can take their part.
ASK is growing and therefore we extending our offers for further badminton, volleyball, football opportunities for our members.
Health is becoming increasingly important for us, and therefore ASK is coming with the current new offers.
Those who just want to give it a try are also welcome to join!
We will shortly be going on with our Spanish conversation classes. This time we will be holding our get togethers at lunch
time (sobramesa). It is easier to speak Spanish next to a nice coffee and a tasty sandwich.
We will be meeting on Wednesdays, from October 19, 2016 each week at Unternehmen Mitte in Basel. Registration is necessary, please register under the German homepage.
