FOR INFORMATION ABOUT PCSING TO GK, PLEASE CHECK OUT:
When this site was created, it was with the intent that it would grow into a place that our community could use as a tool to find what they need and learn about new places to explore. It was a fun hobby that has now become a favorite excuse to shop at a new store or eat at a different restaurant. This is inspiration to see it all! ~Amanda
- I love exploring new places and experiencing this area through the eyes of a traveler and as a resident. I like to discover quirky attractions and cultural events that you don’t always hear about, but the locals love. My main goal is to share my experiences and knowledge with you to help make your stay in this little corner of the world a great one. ~Megan
I’m new to GK, are there any Squash or Badminton clubs?
I’m not aware of any clubs, but there are two squash courts located at the Brunssum gym. The gym employees may know of a club. Here’s some more information on their facilities. http://hereatgk.com/2013/01/17/jfc-brunssum-gym-facilities/
Are there any spouse clubs at GK? In other overseas assignments there are been very active spouse clubs but I don’t see anything online at GK. Bunko night? Dinner clubs etc?
Sarah, there are several spouse programs. The best place to get all the info on all of these groups is from the AFRC but I have a limited amount of info for some of these groups here:
The first one has facebook pages listed for many of the GK groups. I hope this information is helpful in answering your questions and please check out the AFRC on base to see their boards with all the other awesome groups and opportunities! 🙂
I’ve been given the opportunity to do an internship at JFC Brunssum for 2.5 months while writing my Master’s thesis this fall and am therefore on the lookout for a room or small apartment to rent during this time… The ones I’ve found have been very expensive keeping in mind I am a student… Do you have any ideas on where to look etc?

Look at the info here which tells you what the housing office can assist you with and then I recommend calling them. They may know of accommodations or of people looking for room mates and such. Best of luck to you!
Is there any event planed for Super Bowl?
Not that I know of but if we hear of any, we will most certainly post it on the calendar and the upcoming events page. 🙂
