Meeting Tuesday 10 October

October 12 2017

The OA kicked off the new session with a "Kürbisfest", a  Pumpkin celebration as is enjoyed in the Odenwaldkreis.  Members were invited to bring along their carved pumpkins to be entered into a competition.   Members also contributed Pumpkin themed refreshments including Pumpkin Pie, Pumpkin Risotto and other savouries flavoured with the luscious pulp. 

While members mingled and tasted, they were able to enjoy a slideshow which Walter compiled from members' photographs showing most of the events over the summer and, what an eventful time it's been,  including;  participating in a canal cruise; Tryst parade in Falkirk;  a team in The Top of the Town Quiz;  a group tour of The Kelpies;  a bottle stall at Airth Highland Games; private visits to friends in the Odenwald, representatives at the Schottische Nacht in Erbach Schloss Hof and a group visit to the Odenwald in September.  A busy and enjoyable schedule.

Provost Cllr Tom Coleman attended the meeting and chose the winners of the competition who received a small prize.   It was a great night. Viele Späße!
