75 men from around the US (and Europe) convened on the Hacker Festzelt for the 23rd year. Devil Dog, Shawn Fritz exhibited the "gemutlichkeit" of the new ROY17 and will enjoy the coveted ROY hat for the next year. Long overdue, 7 aka VI took home the HAM17 award as veteran of the year!! Congrats to both. The Spirit of Ofest was ever present. No wonder this group continues to get more popular.

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.
