Festus 2016

Posted: September 10, 2016 in Festus (family tradition), General, Jämtland (County), My photographs


Good day today as our family had our annual Festus meeting and we actually celebrated this for the 11th time this year. I managed to secure a pretty darned good spot for it too (thank you for the idea Seth), a cottage at the edge of a civilian airfield that belongs to a local Aviation Society (Östersunds Flygklubb). We had our fun in good weather with plenty of action going on over the field.


The winning team of the games had to guess how many bits of candy that was in the Festus Trophy. The right answer was 220, the individual that had the best guess will now bring home the Award and organize the 2017 meeting. This is a pretty cool idea, it is something that everybody can enjoy.


For the kids it was an exciting day. We had planes taking off all the time, we had a helicopter coming in and we had a team of parashooters doing their thing. Not a bad view. And on top of this there are military aircraft to check out in the vicinity. I think it is fair to say that Festus 2016 was a success. Glad we have this, it is a good idea that works.

I would like to say thank you to Östersunds Flygklubb for allowing us to be there today.
