The hiking tour this year led into the Northern Black Forest. The “Panorama Hut” in Schwarzenberg, a district of Baiersbronn, was that selected destination of the hikers. The regional train, S-Bahn and bus made it easy to get to and near the destination. There, the 16-strong hiking group divided into three groups to cover the rest of the route on trails with different performance requirements. Impressed by the lovely mountain landscape, with fascinating views of the Murgtal, the hikers finally gathered in the beautifully situated "Panorama Hut" to end the tour in a convivial atmosphere. The well-stocked hut kitchen, which had something to offer for every taste, ensured the quick regeneration of the hungry participants. At an advanced hour it was the shortest way to Schwarzenberg and back by public transport back home.
Many thanks to Wilmut Klein and Dieter Hengst for the great planning and organization.

Last Friday afternoon, in the "Kaiserwetter", at the singer hall, the 11-person group of cyclists started the 30 km long circuit with great anticipation. In view of the sweaty temperatures, shady paths through forest areas were selected as far as possible. Via Friedrichstaler Alle, Postreiterweg and Grabener Allee we went to Eggenstein and then on to the banks of the Rhine, the idyllic "Belle". After a short stopover, we continued along the flood dam to Leopoldshafen and to the stage destination, a popular pub with a private brewery. With refreshing drinks, delicacies from the house and relaxed conversations, the time passed until the planned onward journey flies. The rest of the way to Friedrichstal was tackled well strengthened. Once there, the cyclists ended the interesting and varied afternoon in a beer garden.
Thanks to our 1st chairman Dieter Hengst for the successful organization.

Women’s choir trip to Blaubeuren
Last Saturday 27 travel-loving singers and friends met for a day trip to Blaubeuren. The initially cloudy weather did not dampen our good mood, especially since the weather god meant it better and better with us during the day.
Before we started our city tour in Blaubeuren, we still had time. So we explored the extraordinarily pretty medieval town in small groups before a very competent tour guide introduced us to the historical and architectural works of art in an interesting way. In the monastery church with its famous altar we sang a song – "Let’s sing together …" – and were very amazed by the excellent acoustics.
In the early afternoon, when the sun was shining, the "beautiful Lau" greeted us at the really (turquoise) blue blue pot and told us a lot of interesting things about her life. She emphasized that her life had not ended where Eduard Mörike’s version of the old saga ended his story.
Since we still had some time to go home, some took the opportunity to watch a film in the museum about the underwater beauties of the blue pot.
After a comfortable drive home we arrived tired but very satisfied in Friedrichstal, which greeted us with heavy rain.
We would like to warmly thank our singer and women’s representative Anne Perl thank you for the good organization and planning of this excursion.

Under the direction of Aldo Martinez, world-famous hits from pop music, such as "Skyfall" or "You raise me up" performed both sensitively and spiritedly. In the two pop songs "That’s what Friends Are For" and the hit by Michael Jackson "Heal the World", the two choral soloists Salomea and Martina convinced with clear and sonorous voice guidance. The well-behaved moderator Mathias from the host association skilfully provided the connecting and accompanying words for the respective songs.

Singers Association – holiday program 2018
The hike offered as part of the Sängerbund holiday program was a “pure men’s business”. Last Friday, 28 bright legs, 28 men’s legs made their way to Unteröwisheim in regular buses and S-Bahn trains to explore the hilly Kraichgau landscape on the 3-source circular route. As the name suggests, the well-signposted path led past three natural water sources. It was possible to marvel at both bursting fruit trees on the edge of the path and quaint and shady ravines. At the end of the varied hike, the heat-stricken hikers literally longed for the intended stop at the local broom business. The extensive food u. The drinks menu had the right offer for every taste and soon made the group happy. As a result, the time until the planned journey home went by quickly. After an interesting and entertaining day, public transport brought the cheerful group back home safely.
Many thanks to Dieter Hengst for organizing the bike tour and the singer hike
The 2nd day of the Singers Association holiday program was reserved for cyclists touring this time. Last Friday, in the early afternoon, the cheerful group of cyclists started at the singer hall. Away from road traffic, we went on well-developed economic paths through forest and fields to the Rhine and then a few kilometers along the Rhine. The first stage goal, a cozy brewery restaurant, was driven after about 20 km. The personal energy losses were rebuilt with refreshing drinks and delicious dishes. After a long rest, the cyclists set off on their journey home with renewed momentum. All in all, it was a little more than 30 km that the cyclists covered after arriving at their hometown. With a stop at a local catering business, a nice and entertaining holiday program m-day came to an end.
The barbecue evening took place for the 6th time on July 31st. In addition, despite the warm temperatures, many members and guests came to spend a few enjoyable hours at the forest fairground and enjoy the delicious menu with cool drinks. Special thanks go to the Lichtenwalter team for making it possible for us to have this wonderful evening.
General meeting of the GV Sängerbund Friedrichstal on March 20, 2018
At the annual general meeting of the GV Sängerbund Friedrichstal, a large number of active and passive members were already in the singer hall for a meal at 6.30pm.
The first chairman, Dieter Hengst, opened the meeting at 7.30 p.m. and welcomed the numerous members and guests after a song by the women’s choir under the direction of the conductor Aldo Martinez. At the beginning there was a minute’s silence and a song by the men’s choir to commemorate the deceased from among the members.
In the year in review of the first chairman, the many events and special events came up, which could be mastered with choral performances and through the tireless work of the well-rehearsed "crew". A main point was of course also the handover of the business operations of the hall to the tenant couple Frank through a lease agreement, which has already been extremely committed and pleasantly cooperative with renovation and redesign work.
Secretary André Härtl provided an overview of all the important activities of the association of singers – whereby social events such as excursions and hikes etc. were recalled and documented by photos. In addition to the Kerwe, market square festival, Christmas market and song recital, particular emphasis was placed on the successful participation of some singers as tobacco threaders (under Else Gorenflo) in the successful Blankenloch drama “Lenin in Stutensee”.
The statistics of active singers gave a drop of bitterness: Unfortunately, there has been a decline in men. The number of singers, however, increased gratifyingly last year.
A central point in the annual report of our long-time managing director Jürgen Lichtenwalter was the lease to the Frank couple, which went to their absolute satisfaction. The economic report (controlled by the auditors) showed a healthy financial basis for the association. The reporting party pointed out renovation needs that must be tackled promptly. In this regard, his urgent appeal was especially to the young members of the club to contribute responsibly! He especially thanked the "Pensioners team" (!) for many special operations. The helpers were also recognized and valued in all areas. Special thanks to his "irreplaceable family".
Kurt Gorenflo carried out the unanimous discharge of the entire board.
Many members could be honored for years of regular rehearsals. After a song by the men’s choir under the baton of Jürgen Lichtenwalter, new elections were due:
The first chairman Dieter Hengst and the first managing director Jürgen Lichtenwalter were confirmed in office. Hans-Joachim Vollmer was elected as his deputy. The remaining members of the Board of Directors were confirmed in their functions by re-election. Unfortunately, both the popular director of the women’s choir – Elisabeth Hornung – and the longstanding meritorious press attendant Joachim Hornung resigned from their positions due to age and were given a present; Susanne Dressler was newly elected as press attendant and Anne Perl as board member of the women’s choir. After an additional request from Kurt Gorenflo, Heidi Winter was elected as another vice conductor of the choir by acclamation.
With the best wishes for the new year of singing and recovery wishes for the The first chairman Dieter Hengst ended the general meeting of patients in our choir. (BM)
