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.
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
Vilhelm Moberg – Utvandare
