Gauzeitung Deadline: February 1

What have you been doing to keep the bonds of friendship and camaraderie strong in your Verein?  What special occasions are worthy of a little blurb in the Gauzeitung -- weddings, births, major anniversaries and birthdays, retirements?  How about a picture or two from a past event that would be fun for others to see?  Even with no recent events to write about, there's still plenty of ways we can share our love of dance and heritage. Send your articles and pictures to me at

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.

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.
