At the Einweihung in Holzhausen this spring, Gauvorstand Tom Vogt met German reporter Barbara Leidl of the Bayerischer Rundfunk. She’s doing a one-hour feature for the radio station Bayern 2 about Bavarian dance groups in North America. To get to know us better, Barbara is traveling from her home in the Washington, D.C., area to the Gaufest in Milwaukee. While there, she’d like to observe the many activities that we have during the weekend as well as interview and tape people.

The deadline to register for Einzelpreisplatteln to be held at this year's Gaufest is June 10. Dancers must be registered through the on-line registration system set up by the host Verein, D'Oberlandler Milwaukee. The administrator for each Verein has the necessary access to complete this task. This deadline is set by the dance officers of the Gauverband to coincide with the upcoming judges training session this weekend. At that meeting, the dance order for the Einzelpreisplatteln couples will be determined.
