Hallo und Sch?ne Grusse!
There have been a few questions about costumes for the Karneval event. The theme for this Karneval is Dancing with the Gypsies
. You are not
required, but encouraged
to dress up as a Gypsy! There will be prizes for best dressed group (that could be us!), best couple, and best individual costume. I am dressing up, and would like it if I weren't the only one
This should be a super fun event! The band is one that often plays at the big Richmond Oktoberfest. A few of us joined the German Sports Club for Kappenfest, and can tell you that they do a great job putting together a party!
I will have to let the German Sports Club know how many from our group are participating by February 3rd, so please RSVP no later than that date. Your non-German speaking friends and family are welcome to attend this event!
The $25 fee per person will be charged at the door. This covers everything...food (a chicken dinner), drinks (including German beer and wine, soft drinks, and water) Please have cash. Credit cards and checks will not be accepted.
