International Culture Exchange (ICE) Halloween ICE Event Sunday October 26, 2014 2:30-4:30pm
Boo!! Trick or Treat!!
Halloween is just around the corner, but what is it? Most Westerners are familiar with this annual festival day always falling on October 31; however it's often unknown or just simply confusing to people in other cultures or countries.
Come join us on Sunday October 26th 2:30-4:30pm at the Beer Nest 2 and learn all about the interesting history and ancient culture of Halloween from Gordon Leonard!
Gordon has been in Chengdu since late 2005 and has worked in the largest Sino-British University collaboration in SW China at Chengdu University of Technology (CDUT). He teaches university undergraduate business modules in Operations Management and also is currently researching local business entrepreneurs.
Gordon comes from Ireland and has a strong interest in Chinese culture. He completed a Masters Degree in Chinese Studies before coming to Chengdu. He lived in TIanjin for one year prior to coming to this exciting city. He has been married to Susan a local Chengdu girl for two years and certainly agrees that Chengdu is the city you never want to leave!
Gordon's presentation will utilize a combination of visuals and an open forum to promote discussion, questions and answers and shared experiences. So don't be shy and join in the discussion, meet old friends and make some new ones!
Our sponsor for this month's Event will be the spacious Beer Nest 2. Dieter, Richie and all their friendly staff will be there to serve-up their wide selection of imported beer, craft beer, cocktails, other beverages and a large selection of food.
The Beer Nest 2 is conveniently located close to Metro Line 1 TongZiLin Station Exit B. From Exit B walk South 2 blocks to the Masters Complex. The Beer Nest 2 is directly behind the BMW dealership close to the Lazy Pug restaurant.

ICE is about "Breaking the Ice between cultures" and about a true cross-cultural exchange.
ICE is a FREE to join organization with NO membership dues! We are inclusive and welcome participants from all nationalities, ethnicities and religions, regardless of Chinese or foreign, regardless of businesspersons or students and regardless if the participant will be short-term or long-term in Chengdu or Sichuan.
Our intention is for events to be a short presentation from some nationality to speak on some aspect of their culture, answer questions and possibly even give a demonstration of some particular aspect of their culture such as music, dance, art, crafts, food, history, philosophy, architecture, etc.
We do NOT intend for this to be a "One-way street" that is only all about Chinese culture. We hope to alternate the monthly events between different cultures from volunteers among ICE members or guest speakers or presenters we identify outside the ICE membership. We also welcome ICE members, or others, will suggest topics of interest or even recommend guest presenters.
Events will usually be once a month (TBA) on the second, third, OR fourth Sunday from 2-4pm.

We got you covered. It's free, tons of material for tutors and teachers. Get back to doing what you want to do. Relax, play rugby, drink beer, chase the girls, whatever.
We have free games & lesson plans for every age group. It doesn't hurt to check it out.
Takes a minute, but saves you hours of planning.
There will be a Rugby tour to Chongqing on the 18th weekend, we take a bus on the night of the 17th and come back on the 19th afternoon.
It's primarily rugby but anyone is more than welcome to come and play or not, completely up to you, but we are looking at getting a coach and taking a bus down that friday afternoon night, having the bus stacked with beer to get properly wasted, and then head out to clubs when we get into Chongqing after booking into the hotel.
The rugby games are the next day, but you don't have to come if you don't think it's your thing, more than welcome to go around the city and check it out, thing is, after the game we head out for an epic piss up (we're not sober much) with the chongqing team, both girls and guys, but we will also be joined by the kunming sides for a dinner and more drinks, heading out to clubs again.
The next day if you get a chance to sleep is a lunch and a few more drinks at their rugby bar, and we head back to Chengdu from there.
EVERYONE is welcome!! it's an absolute blast and the more people the more fun it is!
As we are aiming to stay in the one hotel, we have the option of triple rooms or your own double room if you would prefer. if you just want a bed in a triple, or have a group of 3 you want to go with, for each person for the two night it is 110 kuai, if you want you own double room its 200 kuai. Bus costs are yet to be determined, but should range from 250-300 round trip, beers on the bus included.
the dinner and drinks there will be around 100 kuai, but hopefully a bit less.
If it's something you might be interested in let know before Wednesday the 8th, and money for the room needs to be given in by the following thursday the 9th, money for the bus and food will most likely be given on the bus, that seems to be the general routine.
So please come along, it's awesome fun, and a good way to travel to chongqing, especially if it's your first time there!
