Measuring Women & Men for Tracht

Delegates Meeting 2016 -- Information Updated 3/20/2016

The information for the 25. Delegiertenversammlung has been emailed to the email list we have received from the Gauschriftführer. The dates are April 29 - May 1, 2016 in St. Paul, Minnesota, hosted by SG Edelweiss St. Paul. The meetings are being held as normal, taking place on Saturday, April 30 and Sunday, May 1, with a dance party Saturday night in honor of the Gauverband's 50th Anniversary. At this time, the registration fee will be $125 each. As we finalize our plans and costs, we hope to lower this amount.

Wanted: Judges Training Venues

The dance officers -- 1. & 2. Gauvorplattler and Gauvortaenzerin -- conduct judges training sessions once a year. The majority of the judges as well as the dance officers are located on the East Coast and in the Midwest, so locations in those areas are especially desirable to stretch the budget. The host Verein's members also house the out-of-towners on Friday and Saturday. The dance officers are currently looking for Vereine to bid on hosting one of the training sessions. The November session is typically held the second weekend  (November 11-13, 2016).
