table tennis circle mourns the death of alfred wagner

The table tennis circle of kronach mourns the death of alfred wagner. He had earned great merits not only as an active player but also as a functionary.
The deceased played table tennis for ts kronach from 1948 up to the state league until his old age. In 1970, his volunteer work began. He was district sports director until 1990 and district games director until 2005. From 1980, he was also district chairman for 17 years. During this time, he belonged to the legal advisory board of the bavarian table tennis association (bttv) for seven years and was secretary at district level for 18 years. He exercised all his honorary offices in addition to his time-intensive work as clerk of the district court of kronach.
When alfred wagner resigned as district chairman in may 1997 in nurn, the representatives of all 32 table tennis clubs unanimously appointed him honorary district chairman. Among other honors, he received the gold pin of honor with wreath as the highest award of the bttv, the blsv pin of honor in gold with silver laurel and the honorary jug of the tt district. As a longtime player, he was awarded various achievement pins.
When alfred wagner’s 27 years of service were looked back on in nurn, it was noted that he had already been responsible for the entire management of the tt district since 1976. Highest goal of its activity was always the promotion of the table tennis sport in the circle. He understood it to stand to all associations helpfully aside and to treat all equally fairly. If there were only three sports court cases in 27 years, then this was proof that his efforts were successful. For him, the reward for his work was the existing friendships with the club representatives, the active and professional guards.
His successor, edgar kraus, called wagner a man "who has always thought about how to move the kronach table tennis district forward.". When he was appointed honorary district chairman, the attendees thanked him with a standing ovation.

Most bamberg residents have access to fast internet

On monday, the municipal utilities will start a new cluster of their fiber optic network at the train station. By the end of the year, 1750 households are to be added to the 35,000 that are already connected. "Bamberg is very well supplied, but we are still a long way from the end when it comes to network expansion", telekom press spokesman markus jodl also says. And vodafone advertises maximum speeds of up to 400 megabits per second, which 45,000 households connected to the fiber-optic cable network can now use.

"A lot has happened in recent years with regard to the availability of high-speed internet. According to the federal broadband atlas, 85 percent of all households in the city of bamberg have access to transmission rates of at least 50 mbit per second, so fast internet is available in most of the city", ihk president sonja weigand notes. But there are still some white spots in the city of bamberg, so further expansion is unavoidable.

The renovation of the swimming pool in autenhausen is scheduled to start in may

According to andreas gsanger, chairman of the autenhausen recreational facility association, the sesslach city council awarded the work to the contractor at its most recent meeting. The reconstruction is to start at the beginning of may this year and last until july this year.

Gsanger provided information on the current status of development at the members’ meeting in the autenhausen sports center. As reported several times, the swimming pool, which was opened in 1972, was getting on in years. Due to high renovation costs, the closure was threatened, which the citizens of autenhausen prevented by founding the association and looking for financing possibilities. This is how the idea of converting the ailing swimming pool into a natural pool came about.

Over the past three years, there have been a number of hurdles to overcome before the project could get off the ground, including a funding shortfall last year. The people of autenhausen were not discouraged, stayed on the ball and took the initiative to get things done.

Master school has good prospects

"With the replacement of the dormitory, the renovation of the school building and the creation of continuous barrier-free accessibility, the ebern master school for the carpentry trade is optimally secured for the future." this was emphasized by managing director rainer klingert at the meeting of the association assembly, at which head of school oliver dunisch gave a report on the current situation of the master school and its prospects.
Dunisch recalled that the 65th store was recently opened. The first master class was held in ebern and five of the 18 master prize winners of the bavarian state government came from ebern. Currently, there are two female and 53 male master students in courses 66 to 68. The courses, each with 20 students, are not completely full, because sometimes students drop out after the probationary period, or they even deregister. The 60 places are also the basis for the new planning, although there is also a decline in the master craftsman sector: the number of master craftsman students in germany has fallen from 3,000 to 1,000 per year.
With the current course enrollment, the majority of students come from all over franconia. This is also due to the new construction of the dormitory, which will be fully available again in the fall.

20 participants per course possible

"we are pleased that, after the difficult construction phase, we have staggered registrations again and that demand is already very good from the fall onwards", said dunisch. Of course, one should not forget that more and more furniture is being produced in industry, and for this there are skilled industrial workers. However, ebern is still planning on 20 participants per course and is trying to utilize the total of 60 places to full capacity. For 2018/19, they are at full capacity, and they already have applications for september 2019.
Association president erwin dotzel pointed out that 46 of the 55 people interested in the school came from bavarian districts and only nine from outside.
Principal dunisch saw these figures as being marked by the construction phase, because no dormitory could be offered at the moment: "normally, 40 to 50% come from bavaria, the rest from other federal states. After the completion of the residential home in the fall, things will look different again."

Major investments

it is important to be competitive on the market. Therefore, the principal thanked the school for the large investments and was pleased that the remaining work can soon be completed. He also emphasized the renovation of the paint warehouse, a very sensitive area for occupational health and safety. It was also possible to renew the wifi and internet facilities, with the entire building now being equipped with a fiber optic connection. Investments were also made in the area of it and mobile laptop trolleys were installed. One classroom is equipped with a whiteboard on a trial basis. The "green classroom" was also mentioned, which is very well received. And they also have a very good team with which they can plan for the longer term.
District president dotzel called the ebern championship school an important flagship for the district of lower franconia, for the district of habberge, but also for the city of ebern.
The annual report for the 2017 financial year was then presented to the association’s general meeting. The total budget amounted to 3 413 868 euro. The reserve amounted to 649,431 euros and was partly withdrawn during the year to avoid borrowing. There was additional income in the guest school contributions with 23,250 euros and in the teaching staff subsidies with 8718 euros.

Fair stars of tomorrow

The fact that the sv wildflecken has once again organized its traditional peter manger memorial tournament is by no means as self-evident as the smooth running of the mammoth event might suggest. Only in 2017, the sv had revived the competition with high-class junior soccer. Manger, who was once a founding member, chairman, referee, game director, treasurer, department head and patron of the sv, died in 1985 at the age of 76. The wildflecken sports enthusiasts have not forgotten him. For the first time in 1990, the people of rhon organized a sports weekend in his honor. But over the years, the commemorative tournament had somehow fallen into oblivion. Until last year it was decided to continue this sporting tradition of wildflecken.
This year the focus was more on the teams from the region. Last year, renowned clubs such as the 1. Fc nurnberg and tsg hoffenheim had been at the start. The sporting action started on saturday, and the venerable helmut-patzke-stadium was already bustling in the early hours of the morning, with an extensive tournament for u9- and u11-juniors.
Originally, a total of twelve teams were scheduled to take part in the u9 tournament. "But the wurzburger kickers had to cancel at short notice", explained the newly appointed sv chairman andreas schmid, who shares the office with reinhard bramowski and sebastian hauke. In a tense final, sc olching beat sg wildflecken ii 4:3 (2:2) in a nine-meter shootout. Fc schweinfurt 05 came in third, sweeping vfl sportfreunde bad neustadt 3:0 from the field in the minor final. Fifth place went to fc coburg, who beat fc 06 bad kissingen 5-0. Sg wildflecken had to settle for eighth place after losing 2-0 to sg hollstadt. The match for ninth place was a close affair, which djk schondra could only decide in favor of jsg wasserkuppe in a nine-meter shootout with a score of 2:1 (1:1). Fc hammelburg finishes in eleventh place.

Penalty shootout decides

already the two semi-final matches were hardly to be outbid at tension. Fc schweinfurt 05 only lost to sc olching in a nine-meter shootout. And the sg wildflecken ii had also defeated the vfl sportfreunde bad neustadt only in the nine-meter shootout. As expected, fc schweinfurt 05 had made a big impression in the preliminary round, when the "schnudel" (youngsters) won the tournament with 19:0 goals and twelve points from four games virtually walked through the competition.
In midsummer temperatures and cloudless skies at the foot of the kreuzberg, the tournament for the u11 teams started on saturday afternoon, with fc schweinfurt 05 again among the favorites. The sg wildflecken was here even with three teams at the start. In the final, vfl sportfreunde bad neustadt won 1:0 against fc coburg. In the small final, fc schweinfurt 05 defeated sg wildflecken iii quite clearly with 2:0. Sg thulba came in fifth, beating sg oberelsbach 2-1. Seventh place was secured by vfr stadt bischofsheim with a 1-0 win over sg oberleichtersbach. In the match for ninth place, there was a curious duel between sg wildflecken i and sg wildflecken ii, which the first team won 2:0. Sv romershag, who beat fc 06 bad kissingen 3:2, finished in eleventh place.

Dreiberg kickers at the top

on sunday the u7-juniors and the hobby teams from the marktgraitz presented themselves. In the tournament of the seven u7 teams, the mode was changed to "everyone against everyone" changed. A kind of final happened in the last game, where the dreiberg kickers won 1:0 against the wurzburger kickers and ended up at the top of the table.
Achim mathes from sv wildflecken thanked the stars of tomorrow for an all-around fair game: "you showed all the spectators great, exciting games." thanks also to all the helpers, sponsors, trainers, coaches and referees who contributed to the success of the tournament. "We would like all teams to come back to us next year. I hope that all participants and spectators had their fun. The most important thing at this event."

"I know our figures, even if not in detail, and understand the concern expressed by the board of directors."

The club itself had pointed to a "potentially existence-threatening economic situation". After a weak fiscal year, the schalkers are depending on every cent this season. The seasonal break caused by the coronavirus crisis is a major factor.
