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.

Seven Is The Hacker Meister, HAM17 Winner. Long Overdue!!!
Seven has been enjoying Oktoberfest since his first day entering the Hacker Festzelt in 2007 when he won the ROY07 award. He then took on the nickname of Seven since he was so proud of his reign. Seven continues to embrace the "gemutlichkeit" on a daily basis and has that huge smile for everyone. Inside the tent, you don't have to look far to see Seven (aka VI) stomping on tables, taking his shirt off, and sharing his smile with everyone. Congratulations, Steve Venema on earning the HAM award as Veteran of the Year 2017.
