Delegates Meeting Update 3-23-12

The following is a short update on the 2012 Gauverband Nordamerika Executive Board Meeting, May 4, 2012 and the General Delegates Meeting, May 5-6, 2012.

As of March 22nd 2012 there are a total of 25 Vereine registered for attendance at the Delegates Meeting with 47 Delegates, 24 Alternate Delegates and 32 Observers for a total of 103 attendees; with less than six(6) weeks remaining to the meeting. The deadline was March 15th for all the forms to be in to allow us sufficient time to complete the planning and arrangements for the weekend which is now a challenge since attendance in the past has always been around 45-50 Vereine attending with approximately 150(+) total people. Attendance per Verein appears to be up by 33% yet 20-25 Vereine have not yet registered based upon past history. What is even more interesting is that our room block at the Kenilworth Inn has been exceeded and we had to establish an overflow hotel which already has 5 rooms booked for that weekend. Please respond immediately with the requested forms to the contacts provided so that we can get a realistic picture of the attendance and adjust our plans accordingly!

Here's the information for the overflow hotel:

Sad News from Bayern

Gerhard Hinterbrandner, Ehrenvorstand of the Altbayerisch-Schwäbisch Gauverband, died today (January 2) in Lechhausen. He and his wife, Marianne, attended the Gaufest here in North America in 1997 in Delaware. Marianne is the current Vorstand of their Gauverband.  We join his family and friends in mourning his passing. May he rest in peace.
