Welcome to the Tursajaiset (or Octoment in english)!
This year's Octoment event is taking place on Thursday 28th of February from 4 pm to 9 pm.
Tursajaiset is a traditional event for first-year students here in Helsinki Metropolia UAS' Bulevardi Campus area. The event is open for all first-year students in Metropolia UAS. It's organized at the beginning of each semester by HTO.
The idea is to compete against other groups by finding bars in the Central Helsinki Area according to the hints you get at the starting place. At each bar, you have to complete a task which is then evaluated from 0 to 100 points. Before going to a checkpoint you have to buy a drink from the bar. Soda or water is fine so you don't have to drink alcohol.
The event starts from Sinebrychoff Park (Sinebrychoffinkatu, 00120) at 4 pm where you will get instructions.
Please ask the organizers to get English instructions as it differs little bit from finnish one!
After completing all of the checkpoints head to Vanha kirkkopuisto (nicknamed Ruttopuisto or "Plague park") where the final checkpoint is located. Final checkpoint is open from 7:30 pm to 9 pm.
Best team will be awarded at the After party!
