"God Bless Bavaria" - Bayern 2 Radio Report about Gau-NA

Bayerischer Rundfunk radio reporter Barbara Leidl did a wonderful job of putting together a report about Bavarians in North America. She spent time with the Alt Washingtonia Verein in Washington, D.C., and also attended our Gaufest in Milwaukee.  While in Milwaukee, she captured the atmosphere of our Gaufest as well as the love we all have of Bavarian traditions and Tracht. There are interviews with many N.A.

Wirtshauslieder Workshop at Gaufest

At the 2015 Gaufest, Adam Levine from SV Alt Washingtonia taught a workshop on Wirtshauslieder.  Those who attended had a great time learning three different songs that are often sung among Trachtler and in the taverns and pubs in Bayern.  Vergelt’s Gott, Adam, for sharing your talents and enthusiasm!  Lyrics, music, and alternate lyrics to those taught are included at the following link: 2015 Gaufest Workshop Wirtshauslieder

2015 Gaufest Gruppen & Einzelplatteln Results

104 couples and 20 groups competed at the 2015 Gaufest -- such a great showing.  Congratulations to all who took part and put so many long hours into practicing.  Kudos, also, to the judges: Thank you for preparing so thoroughly and for the many hours of concentration needed to judge!   Full results are available at this link (view on-line or download): 2015 Gaufest Gruppen and Einzel Results

Congratulations to Gruppenpreisplatteln winners:

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.

Interview with Gau-NA's Gaufahne

Our Gau-Fahne seems to open up to Bavarian Anita Biereder.
