80 men from around the US, Canada, UK, Germany, and Singapore convened on the Hacker Festzelt for the 26th year. RigoBigo (Rigo Bororquez) brought the ROY hat back to the 909. He's the third winner from the Inland Empire, Corona, CA. MoJoe (Joe Ullrich) easily won the HAM award for the veteran of the year. Both guys exhibited the spirit of "gemutlichkeit" at Oktoberfest. The friendliness, openness, and spirit of good times that makes Oktoberfest the magical season that it is.

2012 Reunion Party Date has been set for Jan 24, 2013
More details will follow, but we will again be at the Ruby Hill Winery Production room. After last year's reunion the Pleasanton Fire Dep't knows EXACTLY how to find the location. Everyone is welcome to join the fun. It is a great introduction for anyone considering going. Future rookies are encouraged to attend and get a flavor for why this is the best trip of the year. Prost!
