Dirk Gently’s Holistic Picnic

The Helsinki University sf club organizes their traditional holistic picnic next Saturday (August 16) starting at 2 PM. Everybody is welcome to attend.

The target of the picnic will be decided randomly using the Helsinki area map of the phone book, and will be determined using Random Destiny.
