80 men from around the US, Canada, UK, Germany, and Singapore convened on the Hacker Festzelt for the 26th year. RigoBigo (Rigo Bororquez) brought the ROY hat back to the 909. He's the third winner from the Inland Empire, Corona, CA. MoJoe (Joe Ullrich) easily won the HAM award for the veteran of the year. Both guys exhibited the spirit of "gemutlichkeit" at Oktoberfest. The friendliness, openness, and spirit of good times that makes Oktoberfest the magical season that it is.

Devil Dog Ran Away With The ROY 17 Award.. Congrats Shawn Fritz
When one asks, What does it take to win the Rookie of the Year award?" look no further than this picture. Devil Dog exhibited the friendliness, joy, respect, and spirit of Oktoberfest from the minute he arrived into the Hacker Festzelt. He even arrived a day early, so this was a 4 day thrillride for Devil Dog. His father in law, Mikey O. was a proud peacock as the ROY hat was placed upon Devil Dog's head. Now he needs to break the news to his wife that he must return in 2018!!! Good Luck, Shawn and CONGRATULATIONS.
