86 men from around the US, Canada, UK, Germany, and Singapore convened on the Hacker Festzelt for the 27th year. The Rookie of the Year (ROY) for 2019 hails from Atlanta. Congrats to Skip King. He really embraced the gemutlichkeit that makes Oktoberfest the special place that it is. I was humbled to have the Veteran of the year, Hackermeister (HAM) awarded to me (Ken Bloom) The guys really made me feel special on the occasion and MoJoe did a great job presenting the Vest to me.

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!
