Group notices

From now on MelNaKa Events is allowing Vendors in their hunts to advertise through their MelNaka Events Group. To protect the group from becoming a advertisement group only, there are a few rules.

  • Vendors only get permission to advertise when there is a hunt going on and they have to be a participant in that hunt.
  • Golden Star Holders are allowed to advertise through our group whether there is a hunt going on or not, whether they are participating in the hunt or not.
  • For both Vendors and Golden Star holders there is a limit of one group notice per 24 hours. However, if you have a sponsor slot in our hunt you are allowed 2 notices per 24 hours during this hunt.
  • Notices that are sent out through our group must be suitable for all ages.
  • Of course you are allowed to show your gifts for other hunts then the MelNaKa Hunts. However it is not allowed to promote hunts you are organizing yourself by sending out application forms.
  • We preserve the right to take away the possibility to send out notices at all times (for individuals or the entire group) if we feel the rules are not followed or respected.

To join our MelNaKa Events group, paste the following link in your chat and click to open the group info

Since we can’t check the group every day, vendors please let us know you joined and ask us for your rights to sent out group notices. Also contact us if you have any questions.

Application for the Made in Holland Hunt

made in holland hunt poster

Hunt Dates: September 1 – September 30
Application deadline: August 15th (applications sent in after this date will be reserved as backup)
Max Stores: 150
Hunt Order: Random
Vendor & Hunters Group: MelNaKa Events
Start Location: EED Home&Garden

Far far away in a country called Holland lives an orange lion. He is the mascot of this tiny little piece of land in the west of Europe. This piece of land is officially called The Netherlands and to make it just a little bit more complicated, her citizens are not called Netherlanders but are called The Dutch.

The orange lion sometimes is a bit overwhelmed by The Dutch, because they are known as the tallest people in the world and their pronunciation of the letter ‘g’ sounds a bit scary. But they make up for it when they feed him their nicest cheese or bitterballen (fried little balls made of meat ragout with a crispy crust). Off course all this food makes thirsty, so you drink the world-wide known beer called ‘Heineken’. In order to prevent the lion of becoming too chubby he has to exercise every day. He doesn’t go to the gym, but he does it the Dutch way, he has to leap over ditches with a stick or rides his bicycle. And thats a though cooky, because it is hard to cycle when you are wearing the typical Dutch wooden shoes and the costumes. But hey, at least you get rewarded with nice sceneries of flower fields and you will also see lots of windmills, sheep and cows. There are no mountains by the way. Instead they have embankments to protect the land from the ocean, because big parts of Holland are situated below sea level. And when the lion comes home, tired of all the exercising he goes to bed and dreams about Maxima, the Queen of Holland, waving at her with the red, white and blue national flag .

Hopefully this short story gives you a bit of inspiration for your gift in the Made In Holland Hunt. For more inspiration you can always ask ‘Mr. Google’ or ask the hunt organizers Melody or Najara, since they are both Dutch :)
