The Hills Are Alive.....
It was in a local church basement.
Sorry, no pictures, I forgot to take my camera.
Everything had a Sound of Music theme, from the travel posters of Saltzburg on the walls to the jugs of pink lemonade and the pinecones on the tables.
Remember the pinecone reference?
Dinner consisted of Weinerschnitzel and sauerkraut and baked potatoes, and lots of different salads, and of course, dessert had to be Black Forest Cake and Apple Strudel.
Most participants were dressed as characters from the movie, and we voted on the best costume. The winner was "Maria" complete with straw hat, pinafore and guitar case.
And there was a quiz... who said what.
Who said "Whistles are for dogs and cats and other animals, but not for children and definitely not for me."
And who said "I'm sixteen years old and I don't need a governess."
And who said "The Von Trapp children don't play. They march."
Can you remember? Answers on a postcard please (oops sorry, that's a British joke).
Update: I've posted the answers in the Comments section.
