Events

We don’t overthink too much in this area. We have so many reasons to celebrate, and so many topics to talk about that not one week can pass without some kind of Mistral event. One could say that our frequent get-togethers are the main reason our size never trumps our “wolf pack” spirit.

External events

This is how we classify all events open to the external audience. We always promote such events through social media channels and invite all interested to register prior to attending. This type of event is a little less frequent but definitely worthwhile. If you have an idea for an event or meetup, we’re also up for co-hosting, so don’t be a stranger. Drop us a line via the Contact page.
