After 2012 the club members met for the second time at Martin Häberle (HBO) in Söhnstetten on the Swabian Alb. It was very impressive to see how this company has developed in the meantime. A second historical building, the former school building of Steinheim, was tranzloziert on the company premises and served for this meeting place. The assortment and stocks of selected historical building materials have increased further and leave nothing to be desired.
Seen in this light, it is an ideal meeting place for UHB members.
Friday 19 May 2017
The meeting began with a debriefing of the UHB's appearance at the denkmal in Leipzig in November 2016.
Members reported about their own experiences at the fair. Afterwards, the advertising effectiveness of the trade fair appearance was discussed. Finally, the trade fair presentation was intended to strengthen the public perception of the UHB and its members. This was certainly achieved.
The rainy and surprisingly cold weather of the Ostalb provided for a long but fruitful discussion, so that on Friday already more items than planned on the agenda could be dealt with.
The day ended with a dinner together at the Hotel Kreuz in Steinheim/Albuch including a personal exchange.
Saturday 20 May 2017
Since some physical activity can never hurt, Saturday began with a small hike through the rocky sea of the Wental, so that all participants were hungry enough for the following barbecue.
In the afternoon Alexander Prenzel gave an interesting lecture on national and European regulations on working, driving and resting times in road traffic. The facial expressions of the audience clearly showed that there were some news to be heard that had not been known before.
To the reassuring conclusion there were a few tips on load securing and its legal regulations.
In front of the setting sun the traditional internal auction of historical objects took place. Once again, there were many a treasure.
In the evening the sucking pig on the grill was exactly correct then through and one let the day end with good meal and beverages at the campfire. Thus the official part of the UHB spring meeting ended. A part of the colleagues met again on Sunday at Martin Häberle at Gerstetter Berg.
