The Meurers at the Skitrail 2016
Those who know us know also that we normally don't care about sporting events. We don't own a tv since 2008 and we nearly never attend a sporting event. If we visit a stadium it is because there is a music concert (like Deep Purple live in Concert). But now there was a huge sporting event in Tannheim: The Skitrail 2016. And because waltzing is also about looking beyond one's nose we went to see it. We have to admit: It was fun. The organisation was perfect. We watched the installation and everything went smoothly and quiet. We have no clue about cross country skiing but the event was even interesting for know-nothings. Friday there was a training with Peter Schlickenrieder. Only by watching it you could take quite a few tipps home. And we actually have seen some spectators doing dry practices. In the late afternoon there was a technique course for children. That was so much fun. A lot of different exercises had to been done on cross country skis. Drive through goals, turn around in a circle, throw balls into a bucket, drive without ski sticks and so on. More than 150 children joined the event and it was great fun for everybody.
