Ammerseer Kurier's Article about Ehrenmitglied Sepp Kaindl

A wonderful article recently appeared in the Bavarian "Ammerseer Kurier" newspaper about the Gauverband's newest Ehrenmitglied, Sepp Kaindl.  Author Beate Bentele wrote the article that also includes much information about the 26. Gaufest in Buffalo.  The Bavarians are proud that Sepp is only the second Ehrenmitglied and the first from outside North America.  The article describes many of Sepp's contributions to Gau-NA and how active he is, as well, in Bayern.  Stephen Hargreaves' photos of the awarding of the Urkunde and pin add to the article's interest.

The price is 15 eure plus shipping, which I expect to come to roughly $20 total each. To join in on the mass order, please email Fritz with your number of rings and mailing address.

D'Wageggler Börwang/Haldenwang Enjoyed our Gaufest

Six Trachtler and Trachtlerinnen from the Allgäu took part in the 26. Gaufest in Buffalo. They came to meet us and continue their talks with 2. Gauvorplattler Rudy Leschke about the 2018 Bayerischer Löwe competition. As you know, Gau-NA will be hosting the competition with the help of D'Wageggler. We'll also be participating in the Allgäuer Gaufest and a Fronleichnam celebration from May 31-June 3, 2018.  Thomas Karg is D'Wageggler's Vorplattler, and he is in frequent contact with Rudy about next year's Löwe.
