Our trip to Asten/Fisching for the dragon boat race on 19th of June was one of the best trips we have ever had! We are hoping to go there next year too.
At 7.20, all of us were at the information point at the train station in Linz. Those of us who did not have a ticket for the train had to buy one beforehand. The train arrived at 7.51. After the train ride, we took the shuttlebus to the lake Ausee, where the dragon boat race was. And then the fun could begin! Our team (called “The Dolphins”) were in the third race. Before the race we were all given lifejackets for our safety. Then we all stepped into the boat and raced against the other teams! We were fourth. In the second round we somehow became last. Luckily, we still got into the final. We got around a 45-minute break (where we could try out all the activities there) before having to race for the third time. This time, we were against eight teams and became seventh. But we were not that disappointed because most of the other schools were sport schools! At the prize-giving we got a certificate for becoming seventh out of ten teams (out of the first and second grade). Finally-after the long day- we headed back to the train station. There we were picked up by our parents and brought home. This had been a very, very enjoyable day which wouldn’t have happened if our homeroom teacher (Mrs Gauch) hadn’t been so nice!!
We would also like to say thank you to Mr. Grasser and Mrs. & Mr. Ruhs who came along to support us. A big thank you to the LISA Support Association that helped out with the entry fee.
