Äljöttely Competition of the Guild of Architecture!

Next Monday it is November here! November is the best month of the year, the month of Äljöttely. It is time to declare open the first Äljöttely Competition of Guild of Architecture 

Äljöttely might be an unknown concept for many, so it is necessary to open it slightly.

Äljöttely means hanging out uselessly at the Guild Room. In other words, studying, working remotely, or doing other productive activities is not considered as Äljöttely. You may do Äljöttely either alone or with some friends. Coffee is the recommended sports drink in the competition.

The winner of Äljöttely competition is the person who does Äljöttely the most within a month. The participants will register the daily time consumed in Äljöttely in a form. 

The competition starts on Monday the 1st of October and ends on Tuesday the 30th of November.

Everybody is liable to mark their own minutes reliably and correctly. In case of fraud of any kind, a score may be disqualified.

The winner of the competition will be announced on December 6th at the Hangover brunch of Wähäjoulu. Addition to honor and glory, the winner will also get their name on the wall of the Guild room. Good luck!

Instructions in a nutshell:

Go to Guild room

Do nothing productive

Have fun

Register the daily minutes
