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!
