Gau-NA mentioned on Bayernwelle Radio

You just never know where the Gauverband Nordamerika will be mentioned! This year's Gauzeitung Christmas Greetings included a funny little Christmas poem written in "Denglisch" -- that great language so many of our loved ones speak. The Gauzeitung made its way to Anton Hötzelsperger, Pressewart for the Bayerischer Trachtenverband. Toni got a kick out of the poem and sent it on to his media email distribution list, which included radio station Bayernwelle. The BW liked it, too, and was interested in Gau-NA, so they called Toni, who did a radio interview.

In Memory of Erich Bayer, Ehrengauvorplattler

Erich Bayer, our Ehrengauvorplattler, passed away on November 4, 2016. Erich was elected our 2.Gauvorplattler on January 10, 1976, and then elected 1.Gauvorplattler two years later, on January 14, 1978, and remained in that capacity for eight years. Erich was named Ehrengauvorplattler at an Executive Board Meeting on March 1, 2003. Although on the Executive Board for only a relatively short time, his impact on our Gauverband was deeply felt.

Matthias Raab, "der Kalendermacher," Died Suddenly

Many of you have been enjoying the Oberbaierische Festtäg- und Alte Bräuch- Kalender for some or all of the last almost 30 years of its publication. You may not know that the beautiful large format calendar is the inspiration of a great couple, Matthias “Hias” and Brigitte Raab. The whimsical artwork throughout the issue is thanks to artist Hias; the couple’s love of Heimat shows through on every page. They travel all over to get many of the wonderful photos, participating in Feste throughout Bayern.
