This was a club for German American Shooting Society, where the member partied. Many German immigrants were high-minded in the extreme, almost obsessed by issues of education, culture, and socialist reform, sports and drinking and to re-creating a sense of the Heimatland, the homeland. marksmanship in particular, a very German tradition, combined these interests.
Other clubs were purely social; they brought together people from the same region, town, or neighborhood, giving them opportunities to speak their local dialect, to gossip, and to exchange news from home. The Plattdeutsche Volksfest Verein, an umbrella organization of close to a hundred clubs, was formed just for those purposes. It primary activity was the yearly Voksfest, call it a week-long public merrymaking, at which as many as 150,000 attendees happily celebrated their origins at Jones' Wood, a rustic area above the river in the east sixties, or at other amusement parks outside the city.
