Socials

Society members regularly meet up on the Last Friday of every Month for drinks and to catch up on the latest geological small talk. For the jack of all trades society members, there is the Annual Fishing Competition. Then the year is winded off with the Year End Function (YEF), hosted at a variety of interesting hotspots in Namibia.
