This picture marked the end of Markus' "school-carreer" - You spot him?
Kurt Gamauf and Andi Gross have been so kind to take initiative a few weeks ago and organised the late afternoon/evening - a big "Thank you" for that. Due to work commitments Markus could not join the tour through the school starting at 1800 as he only left Vienna at around that time, so he only joined the food and drink session in Mostschank Unger. Out of the 28 pupils in the 1993 - 8A of the Bundesrealgymnasium Oberschuetzen 20 people could be detected, invited and made their way to - and it was pretty nice and funny to meet after such long time. As Markus has only with Andi, manager of the Oberwart Gunners, regular contact, it was almost like a "turn-back-time" experience and interesting to find out what happened to the classmates both on private level as well as in their careers.
It was nice that also Wolfgang Tretter, the teacher who led us through our last 4 years at school, and Heinz Hafner made themselves available and joined for some substantial meal alongside good wine and beer and helped to come to terms with the past. Similar to the past 15 years also last night time was flying by as there were so many old stories they recounted again accompanied by lots of laughter and several schnapps. By 0330 they called it a day, but an ipmortant decision has been taken as well: Regular meetings (at least every 2 years) will be called! Kurt, still spokesperson of the class, took ownership of this task.
There was neither much time to spend with his family nor a possibility to play the attempted round of Golf with Klaus (Promise: we will still play once this year together!) as Saturday morning Markus had to rush back quite early as he had an appointment at 1000 in Vienna before family Benkoe was coming for BBQ in the later afternoon. Hopefully Felix's bruise really has healed by now!
