I am so deeply smitten thro' the helm
That without help I cannot last till morn.
Thou therefore take Swish of the Deep
Which was my pride: for thou rememberest how
In those old days, one summer noon, an arm
Rose up from out the bosom of the Ocean
Clothed in white samite, mystic, wonderful,
Holding the slingshot and how I row'd across
And took it, and have carried it, like a king:
And, wheresoever I am sung or told
In aftertime, this also shall be known:
That thou didst pass it on to those
Most worthy to have borne its smooth-ed form
Across the oceans vast and moorland bleak
Cross hamlet small and city great.
Till last it finds its resting place in deepest darkest Odenwald
Everything went well. I was Friday morning at 8:00 at the main customs office from Darmstadt. As Norway is not a EU member, they requested my presence when opening the box. Trying to figure out the worth of the two slingshots (so that I can pay my customs fees and taxes) the lady had to hear the full story... to keep it short... No customs fees or taxes for me After that I packed my tent, slingshots and 2kg of steel balls and hit the road to our Meeting.
Here are some impressions from our Meeting. All of the German participants (JanP, Knallfrosch and Seppmann) shot the swish and signed it. Also BeMahoney (initially on the old participants list) was there to support us and signed it.
We did some collective 400 grit sanding on the second one not to damage anything.
During the Meeting we were focussing on a lot of different things, so only some photos, no videos. There's a photo of myself and Knallfrosch shooting the Swish.
