Ruhe in Frieden, Leo Mayer

Leo was amongst only the second class of officers ever to be named to an Ehren position in our Gauverband.

Book Introduction: Faszination Tracht

The Gau-Ehrenvorstand of the Bayerischer Inngau, Walter Weinzierl, and photographer Rainer Nitzsche collaborated on a fantastic new book called "Faszination Tracht."  The 141-page book has 150 photos, each more beautiful than the last.  The text is informative and clear.  The Tracht is from the Inngau and Chiemgau regions and the photos were taken at various Gau- and Vereinsfeste in the area. A "must-have" for anyone who loves Tracht.
