Training has started
On Jan 15th 25 Celts braved the harsh weather conditions and started the outdoor training.
While the traffic in Vienna seriously got affected by the weather, 25 Celts found their way to the hockey pitch Post SV.Those Celts enjoyed running onto the knee deep snow-covered pitch. Except our Canadian friend Charlot (wearing only shorts and a short sleeve rugby jersey), just flying over the snow, the Celts had their first “fitness” session.
It was great fun!

Sadly we have to inform you that Stefan Schauer passed tragically on january 7th 2013 during a ski tour in the austrian mountains, where he and his friend were caught in bad weather.
They got lost and could not be rescued when they were found in the morning.
Stefan was one of the greatest and most gently and supportive players in our club history. Coming from our first juniors generation, where he started to play for Celtic, he was a true role model due to his commitment and his fairplay on and of the field.
Furthermore Stefan also recently volunteered to pass on his Rugby knowledge in assisting our Juniors trainers team to help to develop more junior players.
He never was a man of loud words but he lead by example and soon developed to one of the leading characters in our club. Altough Stefan was only aged 23 years it felt that he was at the club for many years already.
This tragic accident took away a great player, a beloved friend and a great person much too early.
Stefan will live on in our hearts and in the Celtic spirit and we will always remember him as a true Celt, it was a privilege to meet him and words cannot tell how sad it is to lose such a great friend.
We condolence his family, our thoughts and prayers are with you.
In the name of Stefan's family we would like to inform you that the Funeral Service of Stefan Richard Schauer will be held at the Zentralfriedhof Tor 2 Feuerhalle on January 21 2013 at 11:00 am.
The service itself will last a half hour so the family kindly asks you to be on time. Please no flowers at the service.
As chairman of our club I would like to ask you to attend the service and to say goodbye to a close friend and a great person!
