Main Square Sports

Next Pabuca topic…

This time, I had to take some photos from the archive – because even though there are quite a few sportive activities in the middle of the town on the main square, these dates don’t obey the Pabuca topic timeline…

Let’s start with an activity during the Bayern-Rundfahrt, a Bavarian bike race which once had a leg start or end in Pfaffenhofen – while the modern cyclists were awaited or seen off on the main area, there were some old bicycles at the side:


Some other time, they filled the area with sand so people can jump up and down and get rid of a ball (which, however, always came back):


And once there was a beer crate rallye (which usually takes place outside of the city center) – the drivers had to move sticks one by one from one crate to the other along a course:



“Reflections” is the current Pabuca topic, and here are only wet reflections:

It’s not a big puddle, so there’s not a lot of the town hall tower reflecting in it:

During weather that’s not that well suited for open-air pool visits, there’s “not much” going on in the diving pool, only the wind causes slight ripples:

When it rains, there are hardly any noticeable reflections visible – still, it would have been suited for mental reflections while reflecting between the pool edges oneself; rain doesn’t really bother when inside the pool (as long as it’s thunderstrom-free). Of course it only started raining that much when I was finished swimming…

(Two or three swimmers were still in the pool, just outside of the photographed section.)
