1993 Gauchronik - free

The Gauchronik published in1993 is being offered for free from Wilhelm Banzhaf.  The buyer would pay an estimated $10.00 for shipping.  Wilhelm Banzhaf was the Gaupressewart for many years.  The Gauchronik has 376 pages including some color.  It contains the Gauverband history as written by Walter Wieand, Ehrengauvorstand.  It also contains the history of Member Vereine, at the time of publication, collected by Karin Dean.  It is a real treasure!

2016 July 23 - Bayerischer Löwe

Gau-NA has been officially invited to participate in the Preisplatteln um den Bayerischen Löwen.  In case you want to do some advanced planning, however, the date of the competition is July 23, 2016, in Steingaden in the Lechgau.  The Lechgau's Gaufest is the weekend before (July 15-17) and a Goasslschnalzertreffen is on July 22, both in Steingaden. The top three couples in each Einzelpreisplatteln age group along with the top two Gruppenpreisplatteln winners have been invited in previous years.  It also depends on having the requisite number of judges from Gau-NA who are able to judge.
