The weather forecast for this day was not very promising. Nevertheless, the weather god was good to us. Therefore, football-golfing took place in prime weather.

During the joint breakfast of the team the groups were drawn.

After breakfast we went to the train station in order to go by train to the football-golfing site in Detmold. The site is located on the area of the former British military airfield a bit outside of the town. We arrived there after a walk

After everybody chose a football the rules were explained to us and the game began.

Football-golfing combines golfing and football. The goal in golfing is to get a ball into the hole with as few as possible beats. In football-golfing you do not have a golf-club but your foot. A tour in football-golfing consists of 18 tracks which must be passed consecutively.

After two hours football-golfing and still prime weather the evaluation of the groups followed at the beach bar. Due to a mishap the results went missing. Nevertheless they could be restored afterwards and a week later the award ceremony took place.
