Goede morgen uit Brugge
1st August 2018 : The national holiday is especially festive in Silvaplana. From 10.00 clock many attractions take place. The Federal Charter (Bundesbrief) of 1291 opens with the words “In the year of the lord 1291, at the beginning of the month of August”. The document unified three cantons in the area of modern-day Switzerland and is considered one of the country's most important founding documents. Switzerland has been celebrating National Day on August 1 since 1891. There are celebrations in communities all around Switzerland. In most cases, the official ceremonies include a prayer and the singing of the Swiss national anthem (the Schweizerpsalm). At 8:00 p.m. (20:00) church bells ring throughout the countryThe Bundesfeier is a public holiday in all of Switzerland. Offices, banks, schools and businesses are closed. Public transport runs on a reduced schedule. EnJoy EnJoy

26jan18-- david a gall , Good information, thank you. Sheet I had to look up. : The playing surface or curling sheet is a rectangular area of ice, carefully prepared to be as flat and level as possible, 146 to 150 feet in length by 14.2 to 15.7 feet in width. The shorter borders of the sheet are called the backboards. EnJoy EnJoy
Lovely to see them play here outdoors, curling was first played in Scotland c.1541, the first club was formed in 1716, the game is played on a rink or sheet.
13jan18-- Curling games are being played today. Cloudless blue sky with snow covering everything except the trees and the Curling court. -6C but still some players are in their short sleeved shirts. Gorgeous Switzerland.
