    Liebe Freunde der California Association of Germany,
    Liebe Mitglieder der  German American Business Association (GABA California)

     Euch und Eueren Lieben wünschen wir ein gesegnetes, friedvolles Weihnachtsfest und ein gesundes, glückliches und erfolgreiches Jahr 2012.

    In diesem, nun fast schon zurückliegenden Jahr 2011 hatten wir zusammen anläßlich unserer "Monats-Treffen" im "WESTIN Grand" wieder viele interessante Begegnungen mit zahlreichen sympathischen Persönlichkeiten aller Altersgruppen aus den unterschiedlichsten Berufs-, Wissens- und Interessens-Gebieten.

    Wir trafen uns an den für uns reservierten Tischen in einer "gemütlichen Ecke" des Restaurants "Paulaners" im "WESTIN Grand" (some call it "Stammtisch") zu unseren "social get together", also Kommunikation / small talk auf unserem bekannt hohem Niveau.

    Oder wir trafen uns im Nebenzimmer, dem "Stüberl" weil sich - sehr zu unserer Freude - wieder einmal eine Referentin oder ein Referent aus unseren "eigenen Reihen"  fand, die (oder der) uns ein interessantes Thema von allgemeinem Interesse dort im "Stüberl" spannend und professionell vorbereitet vermitteln konnte; - und an daß sich immer noch eine interessante Diskussion zum Thema anschloß,

    gefolgt - wie üblich - von einem gemütlichen, kommunikativen get together, auch bezeichnet als "Zwischenmenschliche Beziehungspflege". 

    Wieder einmal möchte ich zum Ausklang dieses Jahres, das allen Freundinnen/Freunden unseres Columbus-Kreises so viel Freude durch so viele interssante und wertvolle Begegnungen mit so vielen interessanten und wertvollen Menschen beschert hat, auch ganz besonders denen danken, denen wir viele dieser wunderbaren und erinnernswerten Begegnungen und Eindrücke zu verdanken haben.

    Ich möchte mich heute im Namen von uns allen (und damit auch im Namen von von Euch/Ihnen) bei unseren Referentinnen und Referenten bedanken, ohne die und deren interessante und spannende Themen unsere monatlichen Columbus-Kreis Treffen "nur" ganz normale, niveauvolle Stammtisch-Begegnungen wären.  

    Euch allen wünschen wir hiermit nochmals geruhsame und stressfreie Feiertage zu Weihnachten und zum Jahreswechsel; - denen unter Euch, die die Feiertage mit einem Urlaub verbinden, wünschen wir eine glückliche Reise, eine gute Erholung  und eine gesunde Rückkehr in die Heimat oder nach Hause. 

    Bis zu unserem nächsten Monatstreffen am 26. Januar 2012, dem letzten Donnerstag im Januar verbleiben wir mit den besten Grüßen

    Euer "Columbus-Organisationsteam"

    Local News

    Linda Jo Rizzo will be performing a "Christmas Frühshoppen" at the Restaurant "Aeroplan" on 18 December from 11 am to 3 pm.  There you can hear oldies, party and Christmas songs for your listening pleasure.  Always a pleasure to hear her sing.  For more information please see the email attachment.

    Our Friend Colinne Bartel brought to my attention the Volkverlag.  (www.volkverlag.de). This publishing house produces books and magazines with lots of valuable information about Bavaria and Munich in several languages.  Here you can find an enormous amount of background and little-known information about the local history, culture and sight-seeing in Bavaria and Munich.  I find it very interesting reading and highly recommend it to all interested persons.

      Dear Friends,
      The weather in Munch has finally turned around. I just got finished talking to the big guy upstairs, and he said he will see what he can do for Sunday. We therefore, have every reason to believe that we will have nice weather for Sunday and will be able to party in the garden.
      The Munich Cowboys American Football Team will be represented with several members of their team and Cheerleaders. Also, they will sponsor a game where our guests will be able to test their American football throwing skills. For the kids we will have face painting and a clown to keep them busy.
      The very popular American singer and entertainer Ron Williams will join us as well. Things are really looking good for a wonderful afternoon of music, dancing, good conversation and good times.
      If you were undecided until today, now is the time to drop me an email, and let me know that you are coming. Also, please tell your friiends about the party as well and have them notify me if they want to join us on Sunday.
      Best regards and see you on Sunday.

      Dear Friends,
      Dear Members of MING (Munich International Networking Groups)
      Linda Jo Rizzo and Dave Dowdy in cooperation with the Amerikahaus at Karolinenplatz 3 in Munich cordially invite you to the family event
                                                                 Amerikahaus Jam
      to be held on Sunday, 25 May from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. If we have nice weather, the party will be held outside in the garden.  If not, inside the Amerikahaus. Here is another opportunity to get to know and mingle with other Bavarian, American and international groups in Munich.
      We will have up to 18 musicians on stage performing a wide variety of American music from jazz, pop, soul and blues to country music. I personally know most of them. They have been around a long time in Munich and belong to the best in the business. Get ready for some great music, fun times and good dancing.
      We will also have a good selection of food and drinks that will be sold at moderate prices.
      Entrance fees will be 10 Euros for adults and 5 Euros for kids (Kids 6 and younger have free entrance), which goes toward paying the musicians and the Amerikahaus party organization.
      You do not have to reserve places, everybody is invited.  We will have enough space to accomodate all. We ask you however to please let us know per return email if you want to join us and how many people in your party will be attending.  We need numbers so that we can plan the amount of food and drinks.
      Please plan to come per public transportaton or per bicycle.  There are not many free parking spaces in the vicinity.
      For more details please take a look at the attached flyer.
      The Bavarian-American Friendship Day party we had last night was a tremendous success. If you liked that party at the Hippodrom, Frühlingsfest, you will love this one.
      Best regards,
      Dave Dowdy
