Party mood, biker atmosphere and holiday feeling – this triad is implemented by Bandidos Chapter Meran at its annual Garda Lake-Party. Sun worshipper, cocktail fanciers, water sportsmen and motorcycle enthusiasts, all of them get theirs moneys´ worth at and around the Garde Lake. And that´s why Chapter Meran noticed ten years ago that this is exactly the propper place where Bandidos should have their parties.
So a tradition was born which will hopefully last also the years coming. The camp ground proofed in touristic demands enables that the party attendees of the Club can combine their Fiesta Mexicana with a common holiday among Brothers and breathe life into the idea of La Familia.
This year Chapter Meran organized the 10th Anniversary of their Garda Lake-Party and prepared for celebrating from Thursday, 31st of May to Sunday, 03rd of June. Some Brothers took the opportunity and arrvied a few days earlier respectively stayed longer or both. In any way time enough to strengthen ties with one another.
This special party circumstances and the participants of different countries made it feel a bit like a „little National Run“. Not only Brothers from Italy and Germany enjoyed this Garda Lake-Party, but also Bandidos from Spain, Greece, Denmark, Finland and even Indonesia enhanced this outstanding event. Further did various supporters and other Clubs on friendly terms a party visit as well.
This Garda Lake-Party wasn´t in the slightest the same procedure as many other parties. Beside two livebands, beer and cocktails the culinary well-being was ensured by delicious mediterranean food. However an especially noteworthy highlight was the tremendous pyrotechnic show on Saturday night that lighted up the sky accompanied by the musical sounds of Vangelis.
The first who arrived long before the others were Brothers of Bandidos Chapter Bogen as well as Gringos Bogen for the reason that Meran and Bogen cultivate a special relationship within the Club as Twinchapters.
„What´s so special about the Garda Lake-Party is its loyal fanbase that has emerged the last years. In the meanwhile some Brothers are loyal guests every year even if they are from a distant region. So this party became a meeting point for friendships over long distances“, statet Bandido Much1%er, President of Chapter Meran, after this anniversary party and added: „In the wake of this development it´s nearly an obligation towards Brotherhood to continue with the Garda Lake-Party also in the years to come.“
