23 July 2016 Odenwald Association Bottle Stall

July 24 2016

Saturday 23 July 2016, Odenwald Association members turned out to man the fund raising Bottle Stall at the 145th Airth Highland Games. Alongside the local pipe band, Highland Dancing competitions, children’s entertainment, craft stalls, foods,  refreshment tents, and the sights and sounds of the fair, the park was transformed in the magnificent setting between  the Ochil Hills and the River Forth.

Members lined up, proudly sporting Odenwald Association t-shirts, raring to go. If it came in a bottle, it was sure to be on this stall!  All of the bottles were donated and over £400 was raised for Association funds.   Thanks to everyone who worked on the stall and for all the donations.  Prizes big and small were received with a smile and for those who didn't win a bottle, there was the opportunity to 'have a dip in the sweetie poke' so everyone left happy.  Many thanks to Morrisons for their donation for our sweeties.
 
As in previous years, members helped out by manning the entrance gates to the Games. With over 2000 visitors it was a busy day!  With the rain holding off, everyone had a great time.  See photo of the line-up of members ready to sell tickets and find the first winners.

Thanks to Airth Highland Games Committee for their continuing support.
