Chickcie cocktailparty

The 25th of April it is the time for a cocktail party! Finally an activity without all those men so we have time to  discuss some important issues. Discussing important issues (Which shoes should I buy? What do you think of Ed Sheeran? How was your date?) works best when consuming some delicious cocktail and appetizers. So take your Piranha friends and make your best cocktail or snack.

What: Cocktail party

Where: Campuslaan 29

When: April 25th at 21.00 hour

Please subscribe via Chickcie@zpv-piranha.nl or on the list in the swimmingpool. Make sure you let us know what you want to bring so we know there will be enough of everything.


Because many people asked, there will be ZPV Pirnaha sports bags again!
Since the previous experience was positive, we have choosen again for Hummel bags. Because different people use their bags in different ways, we have chosen to offer multiple sizes. This is with the condition that a minimum number of one size must be ordered. If this number is not reached then I will contact those who want that size in order to reach a solution.
The imprint consists of a logo on the side in the orange and white, and on the short side the option to add three lines of text (name, surname, team / sport). Differences in printing do not result in a difference in price.
These bags are available:
– Hummel Leyton Elite (33 x 63 x 34 cm (HxWxD)) € 34.00
– Hummel Milton Elite (31 x 52 x 32 cm (HxWxD)) € 32.50
– Hummel Shelton Elite (25 x 48 x 23 cm (HxWxD)) € 30.00
Do you want to buy one please fill out this google form.
The last day to order is sunday april the 16th
If you have any questions or comments, feel free to talk to Wout or contact him via interne@zpv-pirnaha.nl

Checking the interest for a maritime training

You are abourd a ship that is sinking. What do you do? How do you get the lifeboat and how do you safe a drowning man? During the maritime indoor training of Get Wet Maritiem you learn how to survive at sea. You also learn how to escape from a vehicle that has entered the water. The care is put into the water in many possible ways. It is basically a training every diver or rescuer should have. Do you find this interesting? Fill in this form.



The DAC has decided to change the structure of the committee. This is so the continuity for the future can continue. From now on the DAC has an open structure. Therefore we are looking for more members. The idea is to have a big group of DAC members and brainstorm once every period with the enjoyment of nice food. On this evening we want to creat an accessible dynamic and fun program for all the diving members. A DAC member can decide for him/herself how much time they want to spend on organizing the activities and which activity they want to organize. So are you willing to meet once every period? Do you want to decide when the activities are and which activities there are? Then you should join the awesome DAC committee and have a fun evening with amazing food every period! If you are interested send a mail to DAC@zpv-piranha.nl



UnionCard and association surcharge


From now on it is possible to purchase a UnionCard for 2016-2017! You can also pay the association surcharge. If you are a member of Piranha you are required to have a valid UnionCard and surcharge. If you don’t have these, you may get a fine from the Sport Centre. This year Piranha will check several times if you have purchased both. Therefor it is recommended to get both UnionCard and assocation surcharge soon (before half September).

A picture description of the UnionCard instructions can you find here.

If you have any questions, you can contact the secretary.
