What’s a härweli?
Härwelis are a visible part of Tampere Teekkari Wappu. The idea behind a härweli is often a current issue that is being commented on or just a realisation of its creators’ imagination. Crowds gather to wonder at these strange creations in the May Day fuksi parade. Since 1987 (perhaps already from 1986), guilds have built their own härwelis and enthralled the people of Tampere with their incredible contraptions.
Patent your härweli!
The patenting of härwelis begins 10.4. 23:59.
Each guild and INTO may patent two (2) härweli ideas, and first come, first served. Wappu secretaries strive to notify your härweli team contact person as soon as possible whether your patent application has been accepted. You must also nominate two contact persons per härweli. They are responsible for the moving of the härweli and its loading on the lorry after the cap ceremony. The härweli must comply with the size restrictions and carried by the fuksis themselves. If the härweli does not comply with the restrictions, the team must organise its transport to the Sori square themselves.
Your contact person will receive information regarding the success of your patent application on Tuesday or, if the application is submitted later than Tuesday afternoon, as soon as possible.
