Pointer has placed two mailboxes on the jogging trails of the city of Pori. One can be found on the Kirjurinluoto and the other on the Katinkuru jogging path. The boxes contain a booklet in which, by entering the date, name and email address, you will participate in the draw.
In other words, the more often you go jogging, the more likely the prize is yours!
The jogging draw is performed 3 times a year (autumn, spring, summer). The first draw will take place at the end of the summer season in early September. The winner will be notified by email and the prize can be picked up from the student secretary.
Frisbee golf discs can be borrowed from Pointer's office. There are frisbee golf courses in Pori at Kirjurinluoto, Yyteri and Sampola.
