The President's event

sabato 4 settembre 2021 09:15 - 22:00 , Wohlensee, BERN
Sito web:

Tradizionalmente, all'inizio del nuovo anno sociale, il presidente invita a un evento di sua scelta. Possiamo essere curiosi di sapere cosa ha in mente Michele per noi :)

We meet at 09:15 a.m. at the meeting point at the ground floor of the main train station of Bern. We take the PostAuto to Hinterkappelen (B 101) at 09:31 a.m. and we arrive in Hinterkappelen at 09:47 a.m. For those who arrive later, there is a connection either with the B 101 or with the B 107 every 10 minutes. The bus leaves from the last floor of the train station, in front of the PostAuto.

At 10:00 a.m. a lovely breakfast is waiting for us  at the Restaurant LAGO and Claudio, the manager, will take good care of us. The table is reserved for 30 people with a buffet price of 20 CHF per person. I have made sure that everyone will be able to satisfy any possible caffeine addiction but also to have enough energy for the hours ahead.

By 12:00 a.m., you will have had the opportunity to get to know all the other members of the group. This will be an intra-district event, therefore also an opportunity to build a larger network and new friendships with Fellow Rotaractors from all over Switzerland. From this moment until 05:30 p.m., these will be either your best friends or your worst enemies because I am going to make you become aggressive professional rowers.

Frau Weidner, from the Wohlensee Ruderclub will wait for us at their dock on the Wohlensee. We will start with a short technical introduction to rowing and then will warm up on the ergometers. When everyone will be ready, we will go on the water with the boats.

If someone will get too tired or prefer to enjoy the warm sun, they can relax at the lake or take a refreshing bath. For those, who will get hungry before dinner, there are a MIGROS and a coop near the rowing club.

The cost of the 6 hours of training is 950 CHF for 30 persons. The Rotaract Club Bern and my humble self will pay 100 CHF each. Therefore, the cost for the participation is 25 CHF per person. If more than 30 people will join the event, the excess will be donated to the Rotary Bern Kirchenfeld to sponsor the project Teach a Child Africa.

At the end of the day, for those brave of heart, we will drive back to Bern together. There we can have a walk through the old city and enjoy dinner together. There is nothing planned or reserved for the evening. This will depend on how many people will decide to stay.

In case of interest or for any particular request, my humble self stay at your disposal.

Un caro saluto,

Michele Serra

President 2021/2022

Country Representative of Switzerland and Liechtenstein
