Looks good  :tup:. Here's their schedule for Nov.; it looks like they were closed/inactive on 12-13-14.

Slowhatch, thank you for the link. I had to work to get this, but here is the calendar for Nov. 11, 2008:

11 November Tuesday  18:30 - 22:30   Queen of spades P. Tchaikovsky  Opera in 3 acts  Characters  

My timeline shows tthe teams in Novosibirsk from Nov. 10 until the morning of Nov. 12, so they certainly could have gone to the opera the evening of Nov. 11.

Slow going on the cheese workers. The shirts are trachten--traditional costumes. The coat-of-arms doesn't resemble any Swiss canton. It might be a city flag or even a company flag. Working with the Flag Identifier and Flag Detective was no help.
(fwiw, the laughter looks prompted/staged, which makes me think maybe the Russian soldiers from last season were prompted as well)

 ;)  Just wanted to tie-up a few loose ends, for my sake.  Always wondered where Piazza S. Antonio was exactly.  True, it's in Ticino, but that's a canton, it's specifically in the town of Locarno.

As shown below, the racers do/get something in front of Chiara S. Antonio (church) in the small plaza.

Bavarian beer tent? could be Salzburg, Austria

[

Not Bavarian  Bavaria is in Germany.  Salzburg is in Austria.  But Lederhausen are typical Austrian costume.  And the jackets look very Tyrolian (Grey with Green lapels)  This still is a mystery to me.  Why so many cakes?  Looks like one participant is on his fourth beer.  There must be some relationship between the two events since they are being staged together.

After a lot of clicking, I wound up...right back where I started (almost). While the Interlaken flag sports an ibex, the commune of Matten bei Interlaken (south side of the city, generally) features battlements and stars on a green background. Now to look for a cheese-shed...

Good spotting Slowhatch. I'd drawn a blank on the shirts.  I did find a town called Muerren which had a Alpine dairy and Cheese factory near Interlaken, not sure if they are close at all?

Mrs. Shrek, the Swiss village Murren is less than 10 miles from Interlaken.

Not sure if this was posted elsewhere - but the tandem paragliding may have happened at the "Funny Farm" in Interlaken:

http://www.funny-farm.ch/pages/daylife/adventureactivities.html

Actually its this place that does the paragliding:
http://www.twinparagliding.com/index.html

Funny Farm still looks interesting though...

Someone upstream posted that there is a number for the company on the chutes, can't remember if that was it.

So is that the same company? ???

Here is Obermaiselstein Germany, SW of Munich. Now of course the company location doesn't matter, it is where they go to paraglide that is impt.

But why would TPTB hire a GERMAN company to paraglide in AUSTRIA if there is a perfectly nice Austrian company right there?

If there is time to squeeze in a trip to Bavaria, we could claim a 9th country...

Hmmm...guess what?? Obermaiselstein is known for its rural shop of Mountain cheeses!

Does this look like our paragliding spot??
