Welcome welcome welcome to this year’s National Meeting of English Students. On the first weekend of April, it’s time for the Districts to volunteer tributes, travel to the Capitol (also known as Tampere) and compete in huNger gaMES!

About the games
After settling in at the accommodation after 3pm (Juhannuskylän koulu, Tammerkosken koulutalo, Rautatienkatu 3-5), the tributes shall venture into the urban arena of the Capitol and attempt to complete daunting tasks in small groups. The victors will be announced and celebrated in a sauna-afterparty.
On Saturday, the second day of the Games, there will be an overall patch market and then lectures at the University. In the evening a lavish feast is held to celebrate the victors and remember the fallen. Each district is encouraged to wear a costume to represent their industry at the Sitz Party. Also, there is of course a proper afterparty for the Sitz.
The districts are:
Tampere - Capitol
Helsinki - District 2: Technology (corresponds to District 3 in The Hunger Games trilogy)
