I would like to extend my sincerest thanks and appreciation to everyone who recently participated in the München Oktoberfest, representing the Gauverband Nordamerika so admirably and proudly. I know the Bavarians were truly impressed by our members in the Trachten- u. Schützenzug, and our dancers and musicians in the Tradition Zelt on the Oide Wies’n. Many thanks to Michael Olk for the efforts of turning this idea into a reality. It was a momentous occasion for all that participated and for the history of our organization.

From 2. Gauvorplattler, Rudy Leschke: I just wanted to thank everyone for making our day at the Oide Wiesn at the 2014 Münchner Oktoberfest a success. The six groups that danced (Edelweiss St. Paul, United German Hungarians, Schlierachtaler Stamm, Edelweiss Detroit, Golden Gate San Francisco and HSV Bavaria Connecticut) were wonderful. Thank you very much, Golden Gate and Connecticut, for being patient and dancing last.

On September 21, 2014 more than 9,000 Trachtler, Musikanten and Schützen marched in the Trachten- und Schützenumzug through Munich to the Wiesn - the Oktoberfest grounds. This year, for the first time, almost 300 Trachtler from Gauverband Nordamerika also marched in the 7 kilometer parade. The reasons for the invitation to participate were the 100th Anniversary of Edelweiss, Chicago and the 50th Anniversary of Gauverband Nordamerika. Leading "block 26" was the Trommlerzug Huglfing.
