Born in 1944 on a farm in today’s wiesen district of bad staffelstein, otto scheer was supposed to become a priest. But the latin school did not fill him, his world was already coarser, and his heart beat for the "club". Together with eight other like-minded people, scheer founded the club on 1. November 1976 the "FCN-fanclub wiesen und umgebung" and thus began a success story like no other. Whether the 1. FC nurnberg in the fubball bundesliga – up or down – for the wiesen fan club there was always only one direction: upward. Otto scheer remained chairman until his death, and not only his deputy ottmar kerner is sure: "we’ll never find anyone like him."

The crowd of supporters at the obermain grew and grew and today the club with more than 1000 members was allowed to be the strongest fan club of the 1. FC nurnberg its. Including many celebrities such as mayors and district councils, deputies, pastors and bishops, and even karl-theodor zu guttenberg remains loyal to the club in faraway america. Whether he was thus within a rough distance of the "center is not sure, because the FCN fan club wiesen and surroundings has members all over the world – on the balkans and in asia and in the german neighboring countries anyway. Hardly anyone who did not love to be infected.

When the three-day church consecration festival of saturday, 30. September, until monday, 2. October, in the marquee at the schaferswiese rises, then belong beside music, delicious food, sliding booth or autoscooter also french round dance to it. Traditionally, a large number of these are dominated by the members of the local costume association, who show themselves in their magnificent werntal costumes.

Kaspar-zeub wins title in the circle

A boys’ team, a girls’ team and a mixed team had to compete in two winning sets each. The first match was played by leonie hanna and she served for the girls of kaspar-zeub-gymnasium to gain the lead.

Safe winter helmets for the whole family

For many bundesburgers, a winter vacation with the whole family is a special highlight of the year that many look forward to long in advance. When preparing for a trip in the snow, a few things should be taken into account, first and foremost the issue of safety. It is important to take care of the right equipment in time.

Helmet and skis must fit

A helmet, for example, is indispensable for everyone. The right example is available from the specialist dealer. The helmet must fit tightly on the head, but at the same time must not print. In addition, the ski goggles must match the helmet: the helmet should be flush with the goggles in the forehead area so that neither cold nor snow can penetrate.
After a serious fall, the helmet should be replaced, as its protective function is likely to be impaired. But even without an accident, stability and functionality deteriorate due to material degradation. Experts therefore recommend that helmets be replaced every three to five years. The risk of injury can also be significantly reduced by wearing back and torso protectors, which are available in a number of different variations. Especially for children, it is important that they learn to ski with the right skis.
Because children grow from season to season and the ski that fit last year may be too small this year.
