Go the distance!

'Go the distance' is a U.S. swimming programme launched four years ago. It is a self-directed programme intended to encourage swimmers to regularly exercise and track their progress. In 2010, 2,200 swimmers participated in this programme, logging a total of over 425,000 miles.

John C. Schoser is participating in this year's edition of 'Go the distance'. On 23 July, he achieved the 200 milestone, meaning that since the beginning of the year he has swum just over one mile per day. At present, his score stands at 292.55 miles showing not only that John has sped up his efforts most recently but also rocketing him up into the top 15% of all participants. He may crack the 300 milestone before long, in fact probably even before the end of this month.

Golden Wedding

Today, Franz and Edith Schoser celebrate their golden wedding. It was 50 years ago on 14 August 1961, they married in the abbey of Beuron on the Danube.  The wedding took place only one day after the construction of the Berlin Wall started.

50 years on, the Berlin Wall is history. In contrast, Franz and Edith are alive and well and proud grand-parents of 16 grand children. On the occasion of the golden wedding, all gathered to congratulate.

About eagles and other birdies

More than any other sport, Golf seems to have developed its own particular language. Some say the challenge of playing golf is less learning how to get from the 'tee' to the 'putting green', but to know what it means.

Norbert Schoser has learnt the necessary vocabulary and has entered the miraculous world of golf courses and tournaments. In July 2009 and July 2010, Norbert took part in the annual tournament at Wendelinus Golfpark. His score cards tell us that both times he must have made it to hole 18. But while this is trivial information, we leave it to the instructed reader to identify the number of albatrosses, eagles and other birdies, Norbert came across when walking those 6,265 meters.
