Next Meeting

Thursday May 3rd  2018 - VW-KäferDrive

You’ve no doubt heard of the Volkswagen Beetle, and probably heard of Beetle Drives. 

 In our  VW-KäferDrive game, we’ll combine the two by drawing Käfer car parts instead of a beetle.

(A simple model drawing and the relevant vocabulary are provided). We promise a totally novel and unique experience – with prizes for the highest score, the lowest scores and the best drawing!

Before that, we’ll have a short bi-lingual talk on the origins of the VW Beetle, then have some traditional German songs about beetles and other creepy-crawlies.

To celebrate ladybirds/ Marienkäfer which should be around by then, please come wearing something spotted.

Congratulations to Marian, who led six Erlangen walking friends and Club member Irmgard on the 84 miles (135 km) of the Hadrian's Wall Path! Immense thanks to Adrian, who drove the people carrier and to Irmgard who organised the accommodation. Christine and Simon joined them for the last two days. The weather was mostly reasonable, the views outstandig and the historical background fascinating. The 1st photo shows us at the abutment of the Roman bridge over the river Irthing, the second at a signpost attraction one mile from the western end and the third the pavilion at the end of the walk at Bowness-on-Solway. Veni vidi vici!
