GEA & Berklix Annual Events

By Julian Stacey.

This is a list of GEA & Berklix Annual Events. Most events happen most years.
New ideas welcome.
  • January
    • New Year's Skiing trip.
    • New Year's walk.
  • February
    • Fasching
    • Fasching ends on a Tuesday (in Feb ?), probably English Shrove Tuesday = Pancake day, what Americans call fat Tuesday. Munich don't go to the extent of Venice with masks. Just lots of fancy dress at parties (fun for a few years, then a yawn). I seem to recall street traders here do something in Viktualien- Markt that morning, to also celebrate end of plague centuries back. (Unless I'm getting events confused). Sometimes some of us go to watch it, armed with plastic cups & bottles of Sekt. - A Bad day to Ski - Drunken skiers!

      • Bike Ride led by Julian normally starting from underneath's the ships screw (propeller) on Ludwigs Bruecke on the North (down stream) end of the Museum island on the river Isar. Note Re. `Screw': Germans also call it a Schraub, but I call it a Screw Not because I've been here too long & gone native, but because the proper marine industry English also calls it a screw, only English speaking natives, lay people not professionals call it a Propeller. End of lecture ;-)
