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.

Drunkenstein will be wearing the ROY hat for 2013. Congrats Jeff Baxter
Drunkenstein rocked the reverse Mohawk (yes that is a shaved stripe in his hairline on the top picture) proudly on the first day. After that he traded his prestigious Hacker Herren checkered shirt with an Royal Navy helicopter pilot for the wildest looking shirt in the tent. He was having a great time drinking beer with as many of his new best friends as possible throughout the weekend. His brother K-Bax was sure proud of him! It was even more exciting to see him win since he was the winner of the trip via our Charity Auction! Thanks for supporting the Black Hats Foundation with your bid and now you can wear the ROY hat all year. We can't wait to see you sitting on the dock at the lake wearing the hat next summer. Congrats to Jeff Baxter, ROY 14!
