Gau-NA -- Let's Go to Brazil this Weekend!

Just before Christmas, Christine Ott came into contact with Julian Ruediger who serves as the vice president of the Middle Itajai Valley Germanic Folkloric Group Association (AFG) (Translated name: Associação dos Grupos Folclóricos Germânicos do Médio Vale do Itajaí). This organization is located in Blumenau, Santa Catarina, Brazil. Founded in 1993 with groups in the region, they currently have 18 Vereine under their umbrella, covering 5 cities. In Southern Brazil alone they estimate over 200 Vereine.

Schafkopf Instructions Online

Schafkopf is a popular card game in Bavaria and in Gau-NA. The game has been taught at many Delegates Meetings workshops, and a tournament is held at every Gaufest. Instructions on how to play the game were set by a Bavarian Schafkopf Congress in Munich. The instructions, originally in German, were translated by Tom Vogt.

November/December Gauzeitung is Online!

Here it is the end of 2020 and most Vereine are still not meeting, so a lot of subscribers are not getting their Gauzeitung. Who would have imagined this back in March? To help cheer us all up and keep the camaraderie among us, the Gauzeitung is available online again this issue.

28. Gaufest Rescheduled to July 7-10, 2022!
