The first check for 2016 has been received!

Schwein Schwert had such a good time with the Hacker Herren that as soon as he returned home, he dropped a payment in to lock in his spot for 2016.  I guess he didn't want to wait until the official date in January when we open up reservations for the 2016 trip.  It got to my home before i did!!  #You think you know...But you have no idea!

Vedo is the worlds fastest beer chugger... And he's a member of the Hacker Herren!!! Prost

Just to show, that you think you know, but you have no idea...  Vedo chugged two liters BACK TO BACK.  I've been going to Oktoberfest for 20 years and I have NEVER seen this pulled off, let alone in 15 seconds!  He had to do it that fast in order to make it Instagramable!!

Mutig Mick wrote a nice letter summarizing his feelings after Oktoberfest 2015

I just wanted to drop you a line to tell you how incredibly grateful I am to have been invited in to the Hacker Herren and how much I appreciate all the effort you put in to making this all come together over the past few months.

 One of my favorite comedy troupes, The National Lampoon, once did a skit where a guy was telling a girl (Trying to talk her in to sex) that if all her life she heard how delicious a steak was and never had one, then when finally she tasted steak, no matter how perfect the cut or how well it was cooked, it could never ever live up to her expectations. I have to admit that as a rookie, reading all of the emails, contemplating in my mind how great it sounded and must be, and keeping the Hacker Herren motto in mind; I was having a bit of anxiety as to whether or not I would be a bit disappointed. Wow, was I wrong. It was far better than I could have ever expected! 
 In my 51 years I have had some awesome times, visited some amazing places, and thoroughly enjoyed some unique experiences; last week was by far the best yet. Thank you. 

 A couple of the Hacker Herren and I have already made contact via email and will, no doubt, be visiting one another when we visit our respective parts of the Country.
