Michael N. Fricker editorializes on the history of communication of the German Hungarians, the legacy of the "Monthly Progress," and the redesign of this website, ughclub.us
The team has placed top three in the past three years in the league. We have a very committed group that shows up weekly and enjoys playing year-round in our off season (Winter and Summer) leagues as well.

As a player whose family has been part of U.G.H. for about 70 years, it is a great honor to play for the team and to play in competitions like the US National Donauschwaben tournament.
My goal as a player and now coach is to have the other team come off that field after a U.G.H. win and make a comment like, “Wow, that team is good. No way we could have beat that team.”

It’s been going around that in this social distancing, lockdown, quarantine, & solitary confinement, people are either going to come out fantastic chefs or….with a dependency on alcohol. Some might already be fantastic chefs and we hope none of our members come down with the other option. All jokes aside, not being able to have … Continue reading What Have You Been Up To?, by Michael Fricker
They say you don’t know what you have until it’s gone. The truth is, you knew what you had, you just never thought you’d lose it. While the virus is depriving us from our usual busy schedules, there is something to be said for the amount of family time, time to pick up new hobbies, … Continue reading Among Our Members – May 2020
