Please already mark your calendars for the 2015 Zinck's Night on the third Thursday in October -- just as every year!

Marienplatz can easily be reached by S- or U-Bahn public transportation.

Deloyce and Klaus are usually inviting all intested Cornellians to join fellow alumni, spouses and friends around the world for the annual celebration of the

International Spirit of Zinck’s Night

In addition to this posting Deloyce may also try to reach all Cornellians and Friends in the greater Munich area by e-mail. Please do help her out if you can to have a complete and accurate (e-)mailing list of Cornell alumni in the greater Munich area.

July 2015 ???

Klaus and Deloyce Conrad may again announce plans, as during the last many years, for the "Summer Quarterly" of the Munich Chapter.

This annual Cornell beer garden “get-together” in Munich may again take place in the Hirschgarten, (www.hirschgarten.de) any time after 6:30 p.m. Directions and parking are also given in the English version on the Hirschgarten website.  It gives the S-Bahn directions as well – it is important that the correct stop is “Laim” and not the “Hirschgarten” stop! In case of bad weather Deloyce and Klaus may reserve a table either under an awning, or indoors.  The reservation is always done under the name “Cornell-Conrad.”

If you plan to again take part in this get together and need additional information please contact the Conrads via mail to Deloyce.

This time there will be a meeting at the "Münchner Stadtmuseum" for visiting an exhibit "Rumford - Rezepte für ein besseres Bayern"  In order to have enough time for tickets everyone who wants to participate is asked to meet punctually at 11:00 a.m at the entrance hall.

The Stadtmuseum, St.-Jakobs-Platz 1, 80331 München can be reached by public transportation (S/U-Bahn Station Marienplatz or U-Bahn Station Sendlinger Tor)

Due to the extent of the exhibit (in fact, due to the extraordinary extent of the life and works of Benjamin Thompson, aka Count Rumford), Klaus and Deloyce have decided to employ the VHS dozent for the "standard" 90-minute tour (in German).  This entails an additional cost of € 5,- per Person.

All interested Cornellians are invited to join that Sunday morning that . If you require addtional information, please contact the Conrads under (08152) 79674 or email your inquiry to Deloyce.
