Dear SASL Members, 

 

SASL EVENTS POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE

 

We hope that everyone is staying healthy and safe. During this past year we have had to give up many things, including abstaining from many of the pleasures, activities, and treasured times most dear to us. We now look forward to new beginnings and our hope is that we all start to feel some sense of normalcy very soon. 

 

SASL’s events will be planned and announced according to the Swiss Government Covid restrictions, please stay tuned. Wishing you all the very best and hopeful to see you very soon!

 

Sincerely,

Your SASL Board

2021-08-09 Wild Blueberry Picking @Schoried tbd

Wild Blueberry Picking 

 

tbd

 

Some of the best local wild blueberry picking lies just a short drive from Luzern outside of the little village of Schoried/Alpnach. These berries freeze very well so you may be eating them clear into 2021! Come along for a breath of fresh air and your daily dose of antioxidants.

 

 

What to bring:

  • Containers for your blueberries (plastic buckets or tupperware containers)
  • Appropriate clothing (long pants are not a bad idea given the underbrush but you'll be fine in shorts as well)
  • Good walking shoes (if they are waterproof even better!)
  • A picnic lunch, drinks and whatever else you will need for an enjoyable day in the woodland glades.
  • Sausage or other meat for the grill: We will be making a fire and you can grill up what you bring

 

What you should know:

This is a remote & rustic location. Toilets are only available in Schoried.

 

 

Your Blueberry Spirit Guide: Luke Bragg will be leading this expedition and can be contacted at +41 79 175 7011 or by email at lucasbragg@gmail.com

Please sign up and let Luke know, who is coming and how many people (plus ages of children) by email.

2021-09-02 Art & Chill Event

Art Event - Today you are the ARTIST

  

tbd

Restaurant Prizzi Luzern

 

In one hand a glass of wine, in the other a paint brush.

Something wonderful occurs when a group of people get together and fell free to have fun with paint. Add a glass of wine or beer and it is positively festive. We often, as adults, forget that it is important to be creative, that it is proven to be beneficial to our mind and our spirit. No experience necessary and you can keep your "masterpiece" to impress your family and friends!

 

Come experience the special feeling of being an artist, let your emotions flow and witness your creativity come to life. Martin Sullivan, our very own SASL ARTIST and instructor will guide the group through each step of the painting. 

All supplies are provided and included in the price (canvas, easel, paint, brushes, aprons). Be aware, paint may end up on your cloths, so dress appropriately.

 

Come early to start with a Apéro or even enjoy a delicious dinner. The Prizzi restaurant opens at 5, kitchen at 5:30 pm - order your Pizza ARTE or Pasta ARTE incl. salad for Fr. 28.00.

Fees for Art Event:

  • Prizzi Luzern - painting "Lucerne" - 6. October:                     CHF 65.00

 

Registration  (limited space - this is a "public event with participants other than SASL members) and will be complete with your payment ahead.
