“There is also Sportsfest which is in November. I don’t know if we will go as a group. But we will meet places for games and competitions,” Hanssen said.


There is soccer, root beer drinking, pretzel eating and Volksmarsh, a nine kilometer run and polka band.The club’s performance in Sportsfest can qualify them to go to the state competition in San Marcos, where they will compete against other schools.
