Fingerhakeln Ringe Order

Servus alle,
Our good friend Vroni Menzinger of Trachten Poellmann has found us a resource for Fingerhakel Ringe in Bayern! So, we are putting together a mass order for everyone who had expressed interest from the Fingerhakeln Workship at the 26.Gaufest in Buffalo. 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.

The deadline for the next Gauzeitung is August 1.  At least half the issue will be Gaufest-related.  Do you have a story to pass along?  A favorite photo?  Send it to me!  What's been going on in your Verein the last few months?  Send your news and photos to include.  Looking forward to putting together another packed issue that shows Gau-NA does an awesome job of upholding "Sitt und Tracht."  Email is

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.

Fingerhakeln Workshop Notes

Servus alle,

First off, thank you for all of the enthusiastic attendees at the Fingerhakeln Workshop on Saturday! Linked below is a pdf file containing the presentation. And for those of you enquiring about purchasing high-quality fingerhakl rings, I hope to have an update soon. If there is concerted interest in participating in a formal competition at the next Gaufest in Washington, D.C., please let us know, and we will see what can happen.
