Watching the event from the balcony was the right choice in any case: from above, the audience could not only enjoy the visually appealing arrangement of the orchestras; they also had a good overview of the group playing at the time, were close to the performers, and were able to hear the music close to each other and had a very good impression of the hor. Apart from that, it gave hans-walter berg, the project manager of the orchestra meeting, the opportunity to address the entire audience as well as the orchestras surrounding him in his moderation.

Warm and somewhat wistful
Alphorn sounds opened the evening: warm, heavy, a little wistful calling sounded from the four horn players of the ensemble "die badischen the "pit at bad kissingen and a "little serenade, before the district senior accordion orchestra wurm-nagold for the "harmonika-fest" invited by the music of renato bui. It was light and agile, already structured and made the listeners in their seats move a bit. It was a skill of all the groups that evening: to move and animate the audience.

"Their action was not necessary to defend against the alleged attack."In his closing remarks before the verdict, the police officer said that he had wanted to ward off an attack, but regretted the consequences. "I regret the violations, because they were never intended to happen."

He told the court that the woman had spat at him and that he had tried to calm her down. She had jumped up with the upper body.

Mr. Markert, are you the last rock’n’roller??

Mr. markert, are you the last rock'n'roller??

Erwin markert recently found a new love: his love for the sea. Soon he will set off on a second cruise, with the destination as good as set. But before that, he has another mission to accomplish, one that he doesn’t know where the journey will take him. The 63-year-old has once again stepped in as an emergency helper at FC eibelstadt.

For no other club did markert embark on such a daring adventure for the third time. Twice it has already gone well, but will he be able to save the team as successor of the luckless karl-heinz zehnder also this time from the relegation from the district league? If not him, then who, seems to be the motto at the club. Markert is known as a tough dog, but what he demands is not primarily diligence or obedience, but passion for the cause, his cause, fubball. It was and is his elixir, his joy. 1978/79 he played 38 games in the second division with the wurzburger kickers (three goals).

What connects him with werner lorant? What does he think about today’s generation of players?? Why does he do this to himself again and again??
