I visited the Hippodrom yesterday and was delighted to hear how the plans for the Bavarian-American Friendship Day have progressed. Many thanks to Sepp and Tina Krätz and their entire staff at the Hippodrom for the preparations. We are going to have a good time. Our tables will be in the rows M,N and O about 6 rows away from the band, and easy to find because the tables will be decorated with red, white and blue flags and a free pretzel for everyone.
We still have places, so if you have received this notification before and know anyone else who may be interested, please pass this email along. I need to pass on final numbers to the Hippodrom.
As I mentioned before there will be no cover charge to get in. You pay only for the food and drink you consume.
Bavarian - American Friendship Day
Dear Friends of the California Association of Germany,
Dear Friends of the Kolumbus Kommunikationskreis,
Dear Members of the German-American Business Association (GABA California),
Dear Members of the German American Womens Club e.V.
Dear Friends of the Munich International School in Starnberg,
Dear Members of the American-German Business Club e.V.
Dear Members of the Munich Ski Club e.V.,
Dear Friends of the Munich Consulate General,
Dear Members of the Democrats Abroad,
This year we want to continue the tradition we started last year and celebrate Bavarian-American friendship at the Frühlingsfest located on the Theresienwiese . Again the celebration takes place at the Hippodrom tent, and the Family Krätz happily takes the opportunity to cordially welcome us to their tent. The celebration will start at 6 p.m. on Friday, the 4th of May. Please be sure to arrive on time because we cannot reserve the seats after 06:30 p.m., and any seats not taken by then will be lost. We have 300 seats reserved, but we can have more seats if enough people let me know they plan to attend. So, I ask you to please let me know by return email if you plan to come and how many of you want to attend. Also please pass this email along to any other friends that may be interested.
Again, Linda Jo Rizzo will be singing and performing for our listening and dancing pleasure. Those of you who came last year can remember very well what a wonderful party that was and the fun we had dancing in the aisles! Also, we are expecting a "special guest". Around 10 p.m. there will be a fireworks display.
Also I want to announce another special guest, Ron Williams, the popular singer, actor and entertainer in Germany will celebrate with us as well.
If you have something in "Bavaria-Look" in your closet, please fell free to wear it.
We plan to have many groups join the party, and I will keep updating you as the planning process continues. As a special offer only to our groups the Hippodrom offers us those fabulous hamburgers made from Kobe beef at a special discount. I have never had a better tasting hamburger then these. The tables will be especially decorated for us with a free round of pretzels for the start. All other drinks and food will be on a pay-as-you-go basis.
