...followed by all the kids...

Thank you Hammah for the enthusiasm!

...spectators...

...we gathered under the big oak at the primary school "Bockhorster Weg" in Stade...

Thank you "Bockhorster Weg" for the great fun!

...primary school "Ottenbeck" near Stade was next...

Thank you for the heartfelt welcome!

We got nice refreshments...

...the strawberries disappeared in 15 seconds...

The school was over at noon, but many of the children returned after school just to meet our team!
