Lately some of our members have been concerned
about all of the dances at Morrison. I want to reassure
all of our members that this was done for financial

It is with a heavy heart that I have to report to all
of you that we have lost another wonderful member, Mike Torres. Louise, our love and
prayers are with you. We also lost Hilde Wells, she will be sorely missed. Bernie Schuetz
passed away in July. Our thoughts are with Natalie and his family. Marion Conrad,
who graciously accepted the job of translating our by-laws, is under the weather and I
hope she will be feeling better soon. Happy 90th Birthday to Maria Morelli. She’s been
under the weather; I know the Over the Hill Gang misses your wonderful smile. I just
saw Erna Alcanter and it was super seeing her still getting around, Erna come on out, I
know everyone would love seeing you. For all the other members who have been under
the weather, get well soon and come out or let us know how you are doing.
I want to thank all of the younger members for always being there when help is needed.
I know that most of you do not see all the work that they do but believe me, they remind
me of all the members who started and worked so hard to get and keep our club running.
The election is coming up in October for the executive board. If you would like to
run for a position, please let the election committee know so they can put your name on
the ballot. This is the time when all who believe that things need to either stay the same
or be changed, need to put their time in to help it happen. Please nominate yourself or
whomever you think could and would do the job.
Until next month mit Trachtengruß,
Elisabeth Lane, 1. Vorstand

It is September and therefore the heart of
Oktoberfest season. We started our Oktoberfest
off with the 1st fest along with the rest of you out
at the Morrison property. Two days of beer,
dancing and fun. It was quite the work out, but
always a pleasure to see so many people.
We have Greeley to look forward to as usual. It is
such a pleasure to return there every year and see
old friends and catch up on another year gone by.
It also gives us a chance to visit Erna Peschel for a change. She is
always a gracious hostess.
Our calendar is filled with dances from all over Colorado as well
as a couple of neighboring states. These have become an
Oktoberfest tradition with our group and going back year after year
brings us warm smiles, cold beer, and some great music. This is our
favorite time of the year.
This is also the time of the year we add a bit of polish to the
dances we are performing and to introduce some new ones. We are
practicing a few dances from our workshop in July so we don’t
forget how to do them. If you have ever been curious about dancing
with us, this is a good time to join. We practice every Tuesday night
at 7:30 p.m. You are welcome to come and watch, learn a little
dance with us, or just drop in and say hi. The more the merrier.
As Oktoberfest is most known for beer, we thought it would be
fitting to introduce the worlds oldest brewery. It is in the state of
Bavaria and is now called Bayerische Staatsbrauerei Weihenstephan.
The Weihenstephan has been in full operation since the year 1040!
The brewery started with the Benedictine Weihenstephan Abby
which was founded in 725. Leave it to the monks to start up a
brewery that can truly withstand time. Although the brewery has
been brought up to date with many of the techniques to brew beer,
it still keeps the old traditional recipes and way of doing things.
Next time you are in Bavaria, you should stop in and have a pint.
Happy Oktoberfest!
Amy Dodd
Greetings to all the club members,
and to all who helped support our first Annual
National Schützenfest. Our guests from Las
Vegas, Nevada had a wonderful time while
they were here. They enjoyed the views of
our Morrison property during our shoot, and
they enjoyed meeting all of you at the awards
dance on Saturday night.
I would like to shout out a special thanks
to those who helped us. Rick and LeAnn Salazar who helped with
set up and tear down. They were also our advisors as they are the
only members who have attended a Schützenfest outside our club.
Don Hessler who loaned us the target stands for our shoot.
Elisabeth Burbach who helped set up for the pot luck, and to the
folk dancers, Ron and Rosanne Gehauf, Elisabeth Burbach, Don
and Lorraine Hessler, and Erna Peschel who helped serve our
guests for the awards dinner. Lisa for helping with the clean up. A
special thanks to my wife, Amy. She put all of this together and did
the vast majority of the work and heavy lifting required to get this
fest off the ground! Thanks to all of you for your help--we couldn't
have pulled this off with out you!
Our festival was a success. There were many who said they
would be back next year. Many were already making plans. If you
would like to see the highlights of our festival please watch our web
video produced by Jim Bath. The web site is: www.colovariety.com/
We are grateful to Jim who donated time and effort to get this video
produced for us.
Last, we would like to congratulate our very own Sylvia Schumann
for her second place win among the ladies and to our group who
placed second overall in team. We are so very proud of you!
Please join us on Sept 12th for our next shoot right here at the
club. We start at 7:30. If you are considering joining our group, you
are welcome to come out and see how we do things, plus we will
allow you to shoot as a guest. This will be a great way to see if this
is something you can work into your schedules for next year.

First of all I would like to thank Deanna
Dozsak for all her hard work over the past few
years. With school and work she feels she can’t
give Program 100%. Since I have been helping
over the past few years, I have taken over has
Program and I hope Deanna will still help me
with all her good ideas.
Thanks to everyone who made the 1st German Oktoberfest
a big success and thanks to all the volunteers. Also thanks to
the Continentals and the Alpine Echo Band.
Don’t forget we will be closed Sept 3rd, enjoy the Labor Day
weekend. Sept. 10th is Weinfest, with the Continentals, at the
club house. Come out and see how many bottles of wine you
get away with. Sept. 17th is Oktoberfest with the Average
German Band, at the club house. Sept 18th is the Membership
meeting at 2:00, don’t forget to bring goodies out to share. Sept.
24th is Oktoberfest with the Rhinelanders, at the club house.
Program Meeting will be every other month, so look for a
meeting in October.
Thanks, Cindy Dozsak
