After moving to Canada, Margarete became a Member of the TCC in 1994. In 2010 she was the first female Club Member to be honoured with a Diamond Pin for achieving 150 awards in club competitions. Margarete fell in love with Georgian Bay, observing the amazing variety of rock formations and how they changed, depending on the light of the day.
