Will we see you in June 2010?

Besides an important General Assembly we will also celebrate the official opening of the Malta Room and the opening of the renovated Ground Floor of the Old Chalet. This is the moment to return to KISC, to revive old friendships and memories and to make new ones.

We hope to see you all in Kandersteg during the 1st weekend of June!
