The 19 members who attended the 27. Gaufest in Washington, D.C., are back home. We're proud of our big winner -- Barb Rauschendorfer! She will reign as Schafkopfkönigen after winning the tournament. She gets to keep the Wanderpreis for two years. You'll see a picture of it in the next Wegweiser. Congratulations, Barb! She did our Verein proud. Her teacher, Caroline Schaefer, is probably beaming. The late Aunt Caroline was serious about her game, and Barb learned from the best.
