Virtual Gasque March 5th, 2022


Link to register


Let’s celebrate these 1200 years  in a thundering Virtual Gasque! Also, you need to refresh your  skills in Skåling and Singing  after a long absence.  This Gasque is genuine Chalmers fun!

The event is free and easy to join. You will get a Zoom link in advance. And  why not use this chance for some extra fun by more active participation!   So get ready  snacks, beverages and snaps glasses. And put on Chalmersmössa or a funny face or whatever.  -You will get Snapsvsisor to print before the event.

Gasque scenario

We are all participants in a special Chalmerist Gasque version of Vasaloppet –  on the same weekend  as the big Dalarna race!

All those poor  skiers in the big race will be exhausted at  90 km. But we happy Chalmerists will have  just fun, song and skål! Furthermore, we picked  a  much longer distance to go – in a shorter time!  -We start  in Sälen, do the 90 km race to Mora, while our final goal is Minneapolis, USA, just 6,568 km more!

However,  you must also work during our version of Vasaloppet. There will be tough problems to solve and hard competition for first place. But as a bonus  you will get  a break for enjoying   Blåbärssoppa or  allowed substitute – like OP, Skåne, and Prosten Wallinder’s Nervlugnande Droppar



We offer the following 6 Gasque-Roles to volunteers; you may dream up what to say, but we will help. Some sing a Snapsvisa. Swedish mostly, English OK  -See registration form for roles.

 Gustav Vasa himself,

Josefina –Daughter to a farmer in Mångsbodarna

Jens – Danish Legoknekt

William Chalmers – Entrepreneur

O.P. Anderson – Moonshine maker in Oxberg
