The 1st of July sticked out of the calendar prominently in red, the day of the annual work outing of the Rohloffians. Each employee of the Rohloff AG was eager to know what might happen that day. Weeks before the various kinds of activity were discussed fervently. The party of the canoeists won over the party who favored water-skiing, and therefore, a canoe trip on the river Eder was made.
But the hard-lined opposition and the water resistants refused to take a paddle into their hands. They could choose between a tour on a wagon driven by horses or go on bike heading for the meeting point in the famous town of Wega, where the Cowboys meet.
