2018-07-06, Gelting and Lake Starnberg: This year's summer event was sporty. We started with an archery trial session in Gelting in a gymnasium. Everybody tried to strike home. The right technique wasn't as easy as expected. After this we went to a gourmet hike at Lake Starnberg of about four kilometers between three restaurants at the eastern bank of the lake. First the weather was a bit rainy, but towards evening the sun came out. This was a enjoyable and well-organized event.
