Waldfestplatz

Easter Egg Hunt '18

Easter is back again and it is time for the Mayrhofen Easter Egg hunt. The weather was kind enough to be dry for a while but the sun decided not to show up. Oh well, maybe next year!

There were nearly 40 children who turned up to scour the Waldfestplatz for the nearly 3000 eggs and other chocolate treats, which they managed to round up in less than 20 minutes.

A huge thanks to everyone who contributed and helped, especially to my amazing wife, Karen for organising the event, her 3 chief helpers, Barbara, Helen and Chris, and to  the Gemeinde Mayrhofen.

Easter Egg Hunt

My beautiful and talented wife, Karen, decide this year to stage an Easter Egg Hunt here in Mayrhofen, for some of the children of the town. She bought a ton of sweets and chocolate and put an event on Facebook. There was a great response from other parents in town as well as the town council who also sponsored the event with a bundle of chocolate bunniesto add to the booty!

The day started early as she went up to hide all the goodies in the rain (it was pouring down when she left at 07:25) but thankfully with a bit of fortune the clouds parted and some patches of blue sky were seen briefly!

The kids loved it and all ran about crazily collecting as much as they could, and with nearly 2000 individual pieces up for grabs there was plenty to go round for everyone. There were a some late arrivals but the good spirits of the day even made sure that there was chocolate for everyone.

Das Blut von Solferino

This year my district of the Austrian Red Cross, Bezirk Schwaz, celebrated its 100 year anniversary. As part of the celebrations a performance was commissioned recalling the formation of the International Committee of the Red Cross, and the life of its founder Henry Dunant. I was asked by the Director Richard to come along to the final rehearsal and  take a couple of shots for them at the Waldfestplatz in Mayrhofen.
