Metzgete - 2008

by the Gianotti family


We had again the chance to join the Club for the traditional Metzgete. We had Lauren and Lindsay
joining us for the evening. It was kind of fun to explain ahead, what does Metzgete means?
So since the farmer could not feed all the pigs through the winter, they had to go! And the pieces,
which could not be kept (without refrigerator), had to be eaten right away. Luckily, the old days are
over, and today we can seat on a lovely table and enjoy the fresh blood and liver sausages, Rippli,
bratwurst and the great Sauerkraut.
The PSC team did another great job of setting up the “little Swiss feeling” in the Town Hall in
Sunnyvale. When we came, Tony Raymann and his Edelweiss Band were already playing and the
kids were the first ones on the dance ground. We got some good Swiss wine and were ready to
start. For the kids, who had their own art and craft set up, there was the chance to have some hot
What luck, we were the first table to go and enjoyed the delicious food coming out of the kitchen;
the kitchen crew Willy Arter and Peter Ryser did an amazing job. Thank you very much.
After everybody’s belly was nice and round, some older “kids” joined the young ones on the dance
floor. While some members went around selling the Tombola tickets, everybody got a nice bowl of
fruit salad. And then we waited for the ticket drawing since there were some nice prizes. John
Ralston organized the drawing once more. When we saw the Toblerone prize, we were
disappointed that we did not win it.
But we saw lots of happy faces, and everybody enjoyed another well organized evening. It was
also a great pleasure to meet the new Vice Consul Bernard Jacquet.
Thank you everybody for the help and the organization.
