On the eve of the Wappu eve, 29 Apr, it’s time to kick off Tour de Walpuri (prev. Crazy John). The Tour begins with a bang at 9 pm, whereby the Yöjäynä teams are sent on their way. After the bang, the people on Tour de Walpuri get to start their own adventure. Participants will tour Otaniemi and complete tasks set by different associations and groups. The touring is done in teams, and these teams simultaneously race against each other: the best ones are rewarded! The Tour organisers also get to compete: the best checkpoint of the Tour will be selected and the winners rewarded.

The Tour ends at the afterparty organised by Pelmu, the Wappu Festival, so the fun certainly does not stop with the last checkpoint. Tour de Walpuri and the Pelmu Wappu Festival are open and free of charge to all. More on the Wappu Festival: https://www.facebook.com/events/321360741884642/

So, gather up a team of 4–10 people and head for a tour of Otaniemi in a jaunty Wappu atmosphere after the Yöjäynä opening bang. The teams do not have to be assembled beforehand, and a map of checkpoints can be picked up on the same day after the Freshman Speksi from outside the AYY Central Office.

If, for some reason or another, you have had enough of checkpoint crawls over the years, you should definitely sign up as a checkpoint organiser. So, if you have an association or maybe a group of friends as well as some enthusiasm, register your checkpoint via the link below by 22 Apr:

So, come lift your Wappu spirits and enjoy the funner-than-fun checkpoints! The best Tour participants and the best checkpoint are rewarded with an awesome Wappu basket! In addition to this, the best checkpoint organisers get to use one of AYY’s rentable sauna facilities for free for an evening during the coming summer or autumn.

The winners will be announced at the Wappurieha Declaration from the Smökki rooftop on 30 Apr!

WHAT: Tour de Walpuri
WHERE: Around Otaniemi
WHEN: 29 Apr at about 9 pm–1 am, after the Yöjäynä opening bang
