The HAPA-Forum holds its first fan club meeting and many members of the first hour have accepted the invitation. Right at the beginning we started with an extra ride time. For half an hour the Midgard Serpent belonged to us. In the Aquarena we watched one of our HAPA-Kids as he became an assistant co-trainer with John Burke and his sea lions. Afterwards we were able to ask John a few questions about his work and his animals in a personal conversation. The Autumn Magic by the Sea event formed the solemn conclusion of the first edition of our fan club meeting.
