Carpathia Jaeger Bankett 2014

Sterling Heights - The 2014 Jäger Bankett was a great celebration of this past hunting season. The event, which was held on Saturday, March 8, and was once again able to offer venison thanks to the generous donations of the successful hunters this past season.

As in previous year, wild boar and schnitzel were on the menu, as well as the venison.  Delicious side dishes included Semmelknödel, red cabbage, and mashed potatoes with mushroom gravy, as well a salad of mixed greens with a choice of salad dressings.  The ladies in the kitchen did a wonderful job creating a wild game dinner for all to enjoy.

The hall was decorated with wild game mounts, a mock hunting style blind, and new trap shooting centerpieces courtesy of John Zeig.  Who knew John had these clever ideas for decorating?  Thanks, again.

Oberjäger Tom Forest opened the evening’s events with a spirited speech of the past hunting season. From all our successes and the fun all of us Jäger had poking fun at Tom after successfully harvesting a doe. Rob Seiberling had to wrap a ribbon around her neck and we collectively referred to her as Clarisse. Tom has always been a great sport for all of the ribbing he gets from us and managed to give the audience a funny story.

New club president Karin Schwalbe addressed the guests, and Tom introduced all the dignitaries from fellow shooting clubs in the Detroit area, as well as Tony Dama and Paul Klingenschmidt and their wives representing the Rhine Danube Sportsmen from Leamington, Ontario. Tom also awarded the Air Rifle competition medal to Bob Psotka for being the top shooter in our yearly contest. Well done, Bob. The guests were treated to a slide show chronicling the activities of the Carpathia Jäger activities throughout the past 22 years.  The slide show was accompanied by German hunting songs.

The evening’s musical entertainment was our very own Carpathia Blasmusikanten group, which provided hours of nostalgic Blaskapelle style music.  They kept everyone busy on the dance floor.

Once again, Eric Rausch emcee’d the prize raffle with his fun and witty banter.  Eric was accompanied by John Zeig’s smooth dancing moves, parading the raffle prizes. Apparently John is taking his event coordinator position to a whole new level. Thank you to all of our guests.  We hope you all had a great time celebrating with the Carpathia Jägergruppe.

See you all next year and Weidmann’s Heil.
