Dear Simmers,

I discovered the Sims Community in December 2002. The forum was opened early 2003 and it was a very small and nice community. In March 2003 I started as a moderator, together with Nita.

Come visit one of the Sims 2 student bars in The Netherlands and Belgium!

From April 12 until April 21 the bars "Après skihut Woody's" (Amsterdam), "Lemmy's Biercafé" (Leiden), "Den Bisnis" (Schaarbeek) and Peanuts (Naam) will be transformed into Sims 2 student bars!

You can drink something at these places, completely in Sims style, and you can also win fabulous Sims prizes!

You can win prizes by participating in the contest, which can be done in the bars itself.

The winners will be announced on Thursday April 14 and Thursday April 21.

Don't let this opportunity pass you by!
