Gerhard Hinterbrandner, Ehrenvorstand of the Altbayerisch-Schwäbisch Gauverband, died today (January 2) in Lechhausen. He and his wife, Marianne, attended the Gaufest here in North America in 1997 in Delaware. Marianne is the current Vorstand of their Gauverband. We join his family and friends in mourning his passing. May he rest in peace.

The summary of the responses to the 2011 Gaufest questionnaire is available. We had 22 Vereine respond to the paper copies that were sent out and 40 entries on the online survey. Comments on each survey have been summarized and arranged to provide a better flow and eliminate redundancy. A number at the end of each comment indicates that the particular comment (or similar comment) was submitted by multiple respondents. From the comments, there were certain particular items that seemed to be important to people as they were mentioned in several sections of the questionnaires. We feel the online survey worked very well for the first time we used it and the way the results were presented made it very easy to create that particular section of the report.
