Who are really the activity girls? And what is actually happening in miniUKA?
Who are the activity girls?
The activity girls are Henriette Crook, Inga Steenberg and Agnes Usterud. Together they are planning and conducting “everything except the concerts” as Agnes so nicely summarizes it. “Piece of cake”. Even though they have different responsibilities – with Henriette in charge of the evening events, and Inga and Agnes in charge of the daytime events – they have a really close collaboration. “It is a lot of work. We meet approximately twice a week” is what they tell me.
“Sports, but extreme”
The activity girls are focused on having an including program, where anyone can join anything. Because of this, they are going for Silent Disco and the Extreme - sports day. The Extreme - sports day is described as “sports, but extreme” and will have a feature of “ triathlon, but alternative”. Hopefully, the different sports events are so strange that everyone starts off with the same possibilities. The activity girls are especially secretive, but they promise awesome prices, music and good times.
The event is basically alcohol free, unlike most sports that are exercised at “Agrarmetropolen” Ås, so what “extreme” and “alternative” means, I don’t know. Red Bull is providing free beverages so if you are a solution-oriented person, you know that you are halfway to a Vodka Red Bull.
“It helps to talk about it”
On Thursday morning you have the possibility to get rid of your hangover with the activity girls in CaféKlubben, with good help from NMBU Gaming. In addition to food and Mariokart, there will be a surprise from Red Bull. But most importantly you don’t have to deal with your shame alone – “ it helps to talk about it”.
UKE – expectations
The activity girls can’t reveal to much about the UKE – program, but they say after a while, that the UKE – market is something they want to go for. The UKE – market is together with the UKE revy the original basis for UKA – so that it gets an extra attention is very exciting. What happens in UKA is also dependent on miniUKA: “miniUKA is a test – if something is successful it can be used in UKA as well. Currently it looks like miniUKA – and UKA are both going to be more than successful.
