Surprise lurks in second place

It was foreseeable that vfr bibergau as relegated and title candidate would march in front right from the start. But that the first pursuer comes from the direct neighborhood, but not. In fact, another dettelbach team, DJK effeldorf, has seven points on its account and continues to be undefeated. However, those responsible are under no illusions. Only one coup they would like to land.

A little greater accuracy from the penalty spot was missing, and it might even have been all nines. Because in the duel with the reserve of SG buchbrunn-mainstockheim, the effeldorfer afforded themselves the luxury of giving away two penalties at once. Only raphael hellerberg converted and ensured with the third penalty of the game for the bemerl-elf at least a partial success. Even though more would have been possible, the reds remained unbeaten, which they still are after three games. Because after the opening victory against the schwarzacher second, the DJK also won against the small settlers. "This start was not to be expected in this form," DJK team manager sebastian bohm is also somewhat surprised. "Especially because the preparation was anything but smooth."

In addition to unexpectedly many absences due to professional and private obligations fell during the preparation phase moreover several high performers away. Sebastian bohm himself suffered a torn muscle fiber. Thorsten maag was seriously injured and will not be available for a longer period of time, as well as paul erk, who is now working at the customs in hamburg. Max niedermeyer went to cologne. With david bohm, who left a very positive impression, however, only one new face came along. "The team was already noticeably decimated," said the supervisor. Even in the test matches, only one success was achieved against the same-class FT wurzburg.

“Petit mais 100 % kronach”

On tuesday the seminarists presented their travel guide at their school. "Small but kronach and french "petit mais 100 % kronach"," recalls – this is how it is emblazoned on the cover of the german-french travel guide for the city of kronach and its surroundings, which is very successful both visually and in terms of content. The 32 illustrated pages contain many tips for leisure time activities, excursions and attractions with short descriptions and addresses. "Our travel guide is aimed in particular at young exchange students", explains twelfth-grader sandra fischer. The booklet would like to be help to these, in order to spend with us an interesting and varied stay.
At the same time, they also wanted to support the existing town twinning between kronach and hennebont. The din A5 booklet was produced as a P seminar (project seminar on study and career orientation) at the G under the direction of daniela millitzer. The P-seminar is part of the gymnasiale oberstufe in bavaria. It is intended to support the students in their choice of studies and careers. The goal is to prepare them for the demands of university and the professional world. The seminar began in september 2016 and extended over one and a half school years. At the frankenwald-gymnasium (G), a number of seminars were available for this purpose, from which the then eleventh-graders – now Q12 – could choose.
14 of them decided for "german-french travel guide". The result was a handy companion that shows the exchange students how to spend a wonderful and unforgettable time in kronach and the surrounding area. The seminarians usually met for two school hours a week for group work. In addition, they met privately and also went on excursions to the sights included in the guidebook – for example, to take pictures of them. "We wanted to create something unique. A travel guide of this kind did not give it so far yet. In addition the district kronach does not work at first sight necessarily in such a way, as if one could undertake here for three weeks continuously something interesting ", david bauer remembers the beginnings.
From the school they had a fixed budget available. "But we had such generous sponsors that we didn’t have to touch the budget at all", he is pleased. It was particularly important for them to do all the work themselves. This was also successful because the communication within the team was very good. We discussed and always came to a good solution. The tasks were divided into working groups, where everyone could contribute according to his or her abilities. "For example, we had the french aces for the translation. Others did the layout or the pictures", david tells. Team leader was maike eckardt. "We were amazed ourselves at all the things that are offered here – for example, the city tours of a special kind", franziska simon reveals. The texts were kept as short as possible with the most important – primarily for young people – interesting information. A lot of thought went into the layout and, for example, the font size was varied for more variety. "Mrs. Millitzer supported us where it was necessary. But she also gave us a lot of freedom", she appreciates. Great thanks are due to all supporters and especially sponsors, without whom the guide would probably not have come about in its present form.
A great support was the exchange student clemence, who checked and improved the french texts. Matthias schneider on behalf of the school administration, seminar leader daniela millitzer and kronach’s second mayor angela hofmann were very proud of the committed students. "That’s one reason why we love P-seminars so much. You are a prime example of how everyone can bring their own qualities", praised schneider. In one and a half years, they have created something lasting and have given back 100 percent of the trust placed in them. Millitzer and hofmann could only agree with that. According to the second mayor, the very loving design of the guide shows that the young people identify with their homeland and value it highly. Their professional approach is in line with the procedures in the business world. Finally, she emphasized that she and the city are always grateful for new ideas.
The booklet describes – in each case with a short text and a colored picture – places of interest such as the flakonmuseum and the tropenhaus kleintettau, the flobermuseum marktrodach, the moated castle mitwitz and vierzehnheiligen, among others. Fixed events in the annual cycle are listed – such as "die festung rockt" (the fortress rocks), "kronach lights up", the "kronacher weihnacht" and the free shooting. In addition, various city tours of a special kind are listed. For a better overview, two maps showing the city and district of kronach are included, on which u. A. Swimming pools, festivals and discotheques are registered. The twelfth graders themselves were surprised at how many recreational opportunities and sights there are in kronach. So initially only a flyer had been planned. However, on the basis of the large number, it was decided to use the booklet.
These are on display at kronach’s town hall and district administration office, the city’s tourism and events department, and also in restaurants and bookstores, where anyone can pick them up free of charge. When they are out of print, they will be reprinted.
