The Springer committee takes care of sport activities or games for W.S.V. Desda, by organising tournaments of various kinds for example. Some of Springer’s activities are: a hitchhiking competition, a pooling competition, the murder game, and of course the annual Pancake-Eat-Run-Festivity.

The origin of the name Springer is not very clear. There is probably a connection with chess. The first edition of the Volgens Bartjes say: a better start than mr. Varma’s gift of chess, checkers, and cardgames is unthinkable for this games committee. There is also a dutch mathematician named T.A. Springer who worked in linear algebra. Whether the committee was named after a mathematician, as is the case for some other committees, remains unclear.

This committee has the following members:

  • Ilze van Kuilenburg — head
  • Isabelle Bloo
  • Jitske Bosma
  • Bente Bruurs
  • Thomas van Harskamp
  • Thijs Hoevenaars

  • Tristan van der Schaaf
  • Silke Wiersma
