Brandenburger Schuetzenverein Chicago

March 21, 2020: Attention all members, as you all know the city of Chicago is on a lockdown.   We are a brotherhood and as such, if you need anything, please call one of our younger members.  The telephone list and addresses of our membership are hyperlinked on our “current roll” page.

March 17, 2020,  from our President, Tom Trucco,

After much thought and a conversation with Monica at Dank I am recommending that all upcoming meetings and shoots be suspended until further notice.


March 11, 2020,  For the safety of our guests, members and friends, we have postponed our coronation ball until further notice. Thanks for your understanding.

January 22, 2020, The King and Queen Competition was great fun. Congratulations to the winners.


We hope everyone has a great 2020! Gut Schuß!

November 5, 2019, BSV Members participate  in the DANKhaus Celebration of 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall.




October 6, 2019, BSV Members carried the flag down the Aisle of St. Benedict’s Church.  Thanks for the members who represented us in the important event.

September 7, 2019, Von Steuben Parade. What a great time! Members and non-members alike,  thanks for coming by.  We had fun before, during and after. We have some photographs on our membership only page, check them out. Let’s discuss which ones we want on our front page. Here is one from the post-parade party. It is a great one to start with.  IMG_1152


On August 11th, The Brandenburger Schuetzenverein had our annual picnic. We celebrated one of our founding member’s 90th Birthday.  Happy Birthday Karl Frentz! It was great to see everyone who made it. Here is Karl with the band Alpine Thunder.


On July 5, 2019, members of the club presented a plaque to Joseph Bradtke, owner of Schumacher Imports and Bradtke Moving,  for his continued support of our club.

Thank you, Mr. Bradtke.
