Faschingsfeier, Gulasch Extravaganza & Annual Membership Meeting
RESCHEDULED DO TO INCLEMENT WEATHER
Sunday, March 1, 4:00 p.m. at the home of the Katzers
Due to the bad weather and questionable road conditions, we have rescheduled our event to Sunday, March 1, at 4:00 p.m. Everything else remains the same, and don't forget your goodies! Hopefully this gives those of you who had prior commitments for tonight a chance to join us for what looks to be an outstanding event on Sunday.

I’m glad to report that we had a very successful board meeting, with all 11 board members in attendance.
First of all, and very importantly, our financial house is in good order due to the work of people like Leo, who got a great price on drinks and libations all year long. Also thanks to all our hosts who helped us keep our costs manageable. Most of all, thanks to all of the members for paying your dues (and giving a few generous donations) - we are in the black!
Speaking of dues, Lin and I just paid our annual dues online, via Paypal. Here's the link, if you want to pay your dues now. You can also bring a check to the Faschingfeier.
Sadly, it is now a fact that Christian Tauber and family will be leaving us sometime this year to return to Austria. Robby Weber has accepted the nomination for Treasurer, and we will be voting on that at the Annual Membership Meeting.
We also set the calendar of events for 2015 at the board meeting. You’ll find the dates and hosts in the column to the left, and on the website.
Now on to our first event - the Faschings Feier & Gulasch Extravaganza. There is no doubt that this was a big hit last year! The costumes were great, and the Gulasch competition was intense and delicious.
This year, we decided to formalize the Gulasch competition with a trophy and a title. Hockey has the Stanley Cup, sailing has the Americas Cup and we now have the Gulasch Spoon. The members will vote to determine the winner of the Gulasch Extravaganza, who will be named the Gulasch Hofrat and awarded the Gulasch Spoon for one year. In addition, Heinz Prast will select the recipient of the Chef’s Choice Award.

For this event, the club will provide drinks as always, plus bread. Lin has agreed to make some Nockerln, and the rest of the members will supply other side dishes, salads and desserts.
