Otto Dufter Retires as Vorsitzender

After 17 years as Landesvorsitzender of the Bayerischer Trachtenverband, Otto Dufter has chosen to retire. At the elections conducted at the Trachtenverband’s Jahresversammlung (Delegates Meeting) today (Sunday, Sept. 25), Max Bertl of the Oberer Lechgauverband was chosen to be Otto’s successor.

Otto has been a friend to Gauverband Nordamerika, and we join the delegates at the Jahresversammlung in the standing ovation given to this dedicated and hardworking Trachtler. For nearly 50 years, the 76-year old has served in various offices within his Verein, the Chiemgau-Alpenverband, and the Trachtenverband; he has earned dozens of well-deserved awards and done enormous good for the Trachtenbewegung. He thanked his wife of 47 years, Hilde, for her never ending support. We look forward to many more years of friendship with Otto and Hilde and wish them both well in what will surely be a busy retirement.  Vergelt’s Gott, Otto!    (continued....)

New Reference Material Added!

New content has been added to the website!  Under Resources/Jugend -- the handout from the excellent workshop taught by Vroni Menzinger at the 2011 Gaufest has been added. Vroni is Gaujugendleiterin of the Huosigau Gauverband in Bayern.  She taught a workshop on how to conduct a youth practice. Included in the workshop were tips for a successful practice and three fun game dances to do with young people (although the adults enjoyed it just as much!).
