The Gauverband Education Committee is happy to debut our second video in the GauNordamerika Eats series!

In this second installment, Gaumusikwart Rick Michels shows us how to make Laugenbrezeln, or traditional Bavarian pretzels.

You can find a printable version of the cooking instructions, as well as a comprehensive list of ingredients, courtesy of Rick Michels, under "Resources/Workshops," then scroll down to the video info. Be sure to like and subscribe to the Gauverband YouTube channel to stay tuned for more videos in the future! 

Enjoy Biergarten season--prost!

What says Happy New Year better than Cowbells?

Happy New Year, Allgäu-style!  The Allgäuer Gauverband has a fairly new tradition of ringing in the new year with cow bells, rather than shooting off fireworks.  It was a fun project started by their 1.Gauvorplattler Christoph Zweng.  They call it Allgäu Schealat. This year a few of our Gau-NA Vereine joined in (see this video link).  We hope that next year we'll have even more participation. Thanks to all that contributed.

2022 Preisplatteln Rules Available Online

We know that many Vereine are already beginning to prepare for the Preisplatteln at the 2023 Gaufest at the Kalahari and want to see the latest Preisplatteln Rules. The Preisplatteln Rules have been updated to include all the rule changes approved at the 2022 Delegates Meeting. The rules can be seen at THIS LINK or you can access them from the website home page under About Us/Bylaws. You can download them, view them online, or print them (26 pages). Questions can be directed to the Bylaws Committee (Karin Schwab, Paul Ulrich, or Karin Dean Kraft) or to any of the dance officers. 

Note that the Bylaws, Operating Rules, and Guidelines are still being worked on but will be available online within the next two weeks.
