Topflight Comes Up Trumps - Austrian Holiday Report

This is an article about the club's annual holiday to Austria by Marie Jennings. 

Don’t worry, this article is not about a certain President, just a few words about the club's recent holiday in Austria. Twenty eight members thoroughly enjoyed a variety of walks in the beautifully scenic Austrian Alps. Some did some challenging B style walks lead by our guides Rene and Koki. Others did more gentle rambles lead by Erich whilst all meeting up in the wonderful huts high up in the mountains to enjoy a delicious lunch and beverages

A dumpling festival held in the picturesque village of Maria Alm intrigued us all and following our walk on Tuesday, we sat amongst the locals, enjoying both sweet and savory dumplings- a traditional dish in Austria. We washed them down with local beer and listened to the music played by a local band all dressed up in Lederhosen. 

Mid week was a sos (break) day. Ronagh and Erich organized a bus to take all 28 of us to the beautiful city of Salzburg. A great day.
Heiro, our hotel owners' dog proved to be a great hit with everyone. All he wanted to do was play and he had plenty of dog lovers to assist.
May we say a huge thanks to Ronagh and Erich for looking after us so well from departure to return. To Tony for organizing the holiday and to Ronagh's sister Cathy for entertaining us in the hotel with her wonderful guitar playing, beautiful voice and some great songs. A great time was had by all.
