  • Thursday & Friday 1-5 pm
  • Saturday & Sunday 12-5 pm
  • Holidays 12-5 pm  (May 20, May 30, Aug. 15)

Delegates Meeting: Here's How it Went

The Gauverband thanks the members of Enzian Volkstanzgruppe and the Delaware Sängerbund for the terrific hospitality at the Delegates Meeting the weekend of May 3-5. The grounds and hall at the clubhouse in Newark, Delaware, are the perfect size and atmosphere for holding an event like ours. Chairperson Teresa Vikari and her crew were well prepared for us. Vergelt's Gott!

Fifty Vereine attended with 94 delegates, 34 alternates, and 38 observers for a total of 166 Trachtler and Trachtlerinnen.

Gauzeitung Deadline: May 1

Yes, May 1 is right around the corner and that's the official Gauzeitung deadline. If you need more time after that, just let me know because I can likely accommodate you.  This issue will have the Delegates Meeting recap in it, so that can't happen until after the meeting. I hope to get the issue out before I go to Bayern the end of May, but it all depends on content, when the printer gets done with it, and whether I can get it mailed before leaving. So please be patient. If not by the end of May, then the issue will be expanded to include the Bayerischer Löwe!
