Are you a Bermudian college student/recent graduate interested in accountancy (or know someone know is)?  If so, you won’t want to miss  KPMG’s 2012 K-Nect Student Networking Event at Lemon Tree Café on Thursday, July 26th.  From 5.30pm until 7.30pm, you’ll have the opportunity to find out more about their graduate programmes and career opportunities.

There’s no point in wasting time sleeping over Cup Match weekend so you might as well attend their Dusk til Dawn Rave on Friday, August 3rd.  The UberVida will be anchored near Rockaway Ferry Dock from 10pm until dawn, with water taxis departing Rockaway every hour on the hour.  Tickets will be $20 in advance from www.ptix.bm and the price at the gate will increase by $10 every hour, up to a maximum price of $50 – here’s the flyer!

Don’t have a boat for the Non-Mariners Raft-up yet?  UberVida will depart Front Street at 10am on Sunday, August 5th, returning at 6pm, with a variety of music in between as different DJs, artists and performers pass through.  The cost is $150, which includes an open bar and BBQ.  If you don’t want to be on the boat the whole day, they are also offering a vistor pass at a cost of $50, which lasts for 2 hours (strictly enforced) and entitles the holder to the open bar and BBQ.  Tickets are available from www.ptix.bm – here’s the flyer!
