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.
Everything is happening much bigger and faster this year than ever before. 75 guys will be in the Hacker Herren this year. All sold out on day 1. The training has begun...
Training with the better halves in Cincinnati. Cincy is home to the largest Oktoberfest in the USA, but that isn't good enough for Flea (r), Helwig, and Viper(r). They are going overseas for the #1 worldwide event!
Rookies and Vets and beer Oh My!!
Here we go again with Pocket and The Natural... Looking in game shape already
