Members and Friends Annual Picnic 

Every year we have a picnic for our members and any friends they might like to bring along. This year it is Sunday, Sept. 10, at 2 pm. We'll start setting up at 1 pm, so arrive any time after that.  At about 2 pm we'll have a short meeting along with celebrating our 92nd anniversary. Our luncheon/dinner will be after that. The grillemasters will be cranking out delicious bratwurst and hot dogs; the serving tables will be covered in side dishes and desserts; and the bar table will have plenty of beer, wine, and soft drinks. The cost is $10/person which covers the food and drink. Please bring along a side dish or dessert to share so that no one goes away hungry!  Call Annette to give her a count of how many are coming so that she orders enough meat and our bar Obman brings along enough beverages. Annette is at 248-840-1953

  • $10/person - pay the day of the picnic
  • Bring a side dish or dessert to share
  • Call Annette for a headcount
  • Arrive after 1 pm at Jaycee Park in Troy (Long Lake Road between John R & Rochester) (yup, we've been here many times!)


Our "New" Committee Members 

At our March 12 meeting, we swore in our committee members.  If it looks like there's not much difference from the previous committee, you'd be right!  Thank you to our members for their confidence in continuing in office. Besides the officer photo, we also took a photo with everyone who was at the meeting.  Aren't we a good-looking bunch?


Dance Practice & Meeting March 12 

Our first meeting at the new hall was great, wasn't it? Such a good turnout and everyone loved seeing our "new home."  Let's do it again!  Sunday, March 12, is our dance practice (12-2 pm) and club meeting (2-4 pm).  It's at the new GACC Hall at 40450 Hayes Rd, Clinton Twp, in the Amore Plaza just south of 18 Mile Road. 

Please bring your own drinks (soft or not) and snacks.  

We'll be swearing in the officers elected at our February meeting, so please wear Boarisch Gwand for the photo. We'll also take a group photo of ALL our members, so if you'd like to dress up a bit, please do!

See you there!


Road Trip!  Frühschoppen in Toledo 

Who goes to Toledo for brunch?  WE DO!  Why? Because of the delicious food--Weisswurst, soft pretzels, more side dishes than you can count, any kind of beer you desire. Oh, by the way, it's not brunch, it's called Frühschoppen. It's what Bavarians do on Sunday mornings, always before noon. But it's not just the food and drink that lure us there, it's the good company! Dozens of our favorite people from the Bavarian Sports Club Holzhackerbuam Schuhplattler Gruppe will be there to welcome us. When we're done eating, we'll go upstairs to dance on the wonderful wooden floor, learning new dances from one another. And continuing with snacking and beer tasting and socializing.

If that sounds like fun, give Edelweiss Vorplattler Eric Walker a call and sign up to join us at the Bavarian Sports Club Hall. You'll love it there and have a fun-filled day with all of us.

Sunday, Feb. 26.  Begins at 11 am.   Bavarian Sports Club Hall -- 2102 LaGrange St. -- Toledo, Ohio.  The Hall is at the corner of LaGrange and Moore. Enter the secure parking lot off of Moore St.
