Festivities continued over both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday saw a much more relaxed approach as members could either take a trip to Zsolnay Quarterto in Pécs, or those wishing a more speedy outing could visit Regöly, to under a visit at Újszkítia, where a uniquer display highlighted ancient Hungarian living forms and traditions. Both groups then came back together to meet at Pécsvárad Castle to undertake further sightseeing at this stunning location.

In the evening the now regular Gala Dinner took place again at the Hotel, where everyone had an opportunity to swap stories about the visits early in the day, and enjoy the evening and it's fineries.
