Bayerischer Rundfunk reporter Barbara Leidl was at our Gaufest to do a report about Trachtler in North America. Her first written report was published on the BR website recently, complete with many photos she took. Take a look at the link. And stay tuned for her one-hour radio report to be broadcast on Bayern 2 on August 30 at 12:05 pm (German time). Link to Article

From our Gaujugendvertreterin, Heidi von Recklinghausen:
The 25. Gaufest lent itself to a host of renewing friendships, making new friendships, and of course memories. Memories of the Einzelpreisplattln, Gruppenpreisplattln, top notch workshops, Kinder Zimmer, and the Volksmusik Zimmer are etched in our minds and the many photos that were taken over the weekend. The Jugend Einzelplattln and Jugend Einzelpreisplattln - PRICELESS!

From Gaujugendvertreterin Heidi von Recklinghausen: On Friday, July 31st from 1:30 p.m. – 4 p.m. Diane Meck and her committee from the Mid- Atlantic Region have planned a Kinder Zimmer. It will be held in the Gilpatrick Ballroom of the Hyatt Hotel. The purpose is to allow the children in attendance at the Gaufest to meet new friends. We all know many of us all met each other when we were kids and those friendships have been maintained over the years.

The July 1, 2015, issue of the Bayerischer Trachtenverband's Heimat- und Trachtenbote had a nice memorial write-up about Jerry & Marie Hugel of Schlierachtaler Stamm, NY. The couple certainly made their mark throughout the Bavarian community!
