Ivan Hauri reports "It has been a while since my last message. In the meantime after a number of other activities this year Ulysses Switzerland has followed the invitation from our German friends to attend at the 8th European Gathering. Here is a little wrap up:
The long weekend from 2 to 5 June 2017 saw Ulysseans from throughout Europe including France, Norway, UK, Switzerland, Germany as well members from Australia the taking part in the 8th European Ulysses Club Gathering. The meeting was organised as by the German Ulysses Club. They did an absolutely tremendous job and laid the base for a memorable get together.
Friday afternoon 2 June 2017 saw the arrival of members from all corners of Europe in Eppelborn, Saarland, what is Ulysses Club Germany's Headquarter. Lots of "Wiedersehens" of old mates from past gatherings. A good time and some beers was had by all.
For both Saturday 3 June and Sunday 4 June respectively the Germans had organised 2 guided ride outs of approximately 200 km across the wonderful countryside of Saarland and Rheinland-Palatinate nearby.
Saturday night was entertainment night with live music playing music from the 60s and 70s played by terrific band partly made up from German Ulysses Club members. What a ball!
Sunday night and/or Monday morning it was already time to say goodby to new and old friends, to saddle our steeds and to take off direction home wherever in Europe that may be.
On behalf of the Swiss Club I wish to express my sincere thanks to the Ulysses Club Germany for having us and for staging yet again an absolutely perfect get together.
As far as the activities of Ulysses-club Switzerland in the near future are concerned there is much to come yet like weekend ride outs to the French alps, to the North Italian Lake region, Ticino the Italian speaking part of Switzerland, around the Mont Blanc in France, etc. On the social front for the next months we have a number of get togethers, BBQs, etc. planned. Dates and further details can be found on our webpage: ulysses-club.ch or obtained directly from myself as International Liaison Officer firstname.lastname@example.org
