Saunaletter 7 2018

Dear members of ISA and other saunalovers


First of all we wish You all very good Christmas time saunas where ever You are!


The last saunaletter of this year 2018 is including links of
different events/happenings etc. which we hope that do open to You new ideas etc. about sauna and sauna world.


I would like also to Congratulate Lithuanian Bath Acdemy here for their 15 years Anniversary. They have been very active especially with whisking development and  e.g. tarining courses in whisking like also some Finns do know because they have been participating those.


We have also got a new supporting member in  Germany.  The Board was apporving their membership in the end of October .The company B&S GmbH is an old player in sauna world . We hope to get their presentation early next year.


There are few more members considering different memberships starting from the beinning of 2019.


Please read also the invitation to the banyaWorld event in Russia. The vent is very soon but certainly also interesting. Those of You who were in the Congress do rememberthe Russian Banya with Egor and his friends.



The Congress in June was doing that and especially the wide media coverage that we have had. Also some of that is here included.


The final report from Congress should come out sometimes early next year. Our friends in Australia are working for that.


Concerning INTERBAD in Stuttgart , Germany I have included their press release in English. It is available also in other languages.


Interbad is allways an interesting place to meet old friends and also listen the different presentations etc. and naturally see the newest products in the branch.


This year there was not too much new things but most of the old players were present.


Read the enclosed report.



And then those links:


The first one comes from Japan and from a sauna camp there

Sweet Swaet in UK , PLEASE  note that we have the British Sauna Society as the ISA member there



Happening in Tscek Republic



In Japan Metos was opening a Saunashop with the Finnish name Saunasoppi in August.
This could be an interesting place for Japanese to visit because there is going to Finnish sauna products available.


Finally I would like to point out that the next term of the Board starts  01.01.2019.
There were small changes in the Board.


I am going to continue as the President and I would like to thank the members for that.


Finnish Sauna Society was appointing Jussi Niemelä as their representative .


As another new member was elected Lars Erikssen from Norway. We expect a lot of new ideas and contacts from him.


Japan was officially appointing Mr. Kim to the Board as their representative. He has actually been involved quite a long time because mr. Nakano has not been able to fly long flights.


The Board was nominating Kari Laukkarinen  to continue as the secretary of ISA.


The next Board meeting is going to happen sometimes in the winter but we let you know well in advance so that You can bring all the possible subjects to the Board.


And please consider if You have some organisations, countries , supporting members etc. which You think that could join ISA . We are more than happy to get some more
members so that we can cover all the sauna countries on the globe.


Finally , once more , Merry Christmas and a Very Good New Sauna Year 2019!
