HAcker Meister Award aka HAM (Meister means master in German (as in master craftsman, or as an honorific title such as Meister Eckhart). The word is akin to maestro.
The Hacker Meister has been established by popular request from many of you over the years. The HAM award will go to the person, rookie or veteran, who best embodies the spirit of Oktoberfest and The Hacker Herren during our annual trip to Oktoberfest. We previously haven't recognized the veterans via a Legacy Award. Vedo has never been recognized for his ability to open his gullet and suck down a liter of beer faster than all 10000 people in the Hacker Festzelt. Seven has never been recognized for his table stomping, incessant dancing, peppermint sniffing, and Mass tracking. Legacy has never been recognized for his ability to digest an entire hendl-bones and all. Der Stinker has never been recognized for his prodigious colo-rectal capabilities...any time, any place. All the chugging, singing, story telling, creative props, pizza eating, song singing, dirndl attracting actions will now all be considered and an award with a beautiful prize donated by Barons Jewelers will go to the inagural winner of the Hacker Meister award. You will forever be known as the first HAM.
We are all looking forward to another great year and this year, we will recognize the HAM . Will it be you??? We will all find out Saturday afternoon at the Hacker Herren meeting...
