Best Ofest yet for the Hacker Herren in 2023. 106 guys and 44 rookies all staying in one hotel. Ash literally didn't know anyone in the group, yet embraced the "gemutlichkeit". He laughed, smiled, drank, and WORE THE CHICKEN SUIT! No wonder Andy "Ash" Ashley is ROY23. Pudge won the HAM award to nobody's surprise. He is hilarious running the awards ceremony on top of his nearly 20 years of attending Ofest. Congrats to all!!

HAM Award goes to Chris "Pudge" Seams
Pudge was an easy choice for all to win the Hackermeister (HAM) Award for 2023. This is the Veteran of they Year award. Pudge has been coming to Ofest for nearly 20 years. He has had a great time bringing his two sons for multiple years. The great humor that he shares with the guys during the Award Ceremony each year is a highlight that we all look forward to. And on top of all this, he has to try to contain Seven each year. Congrats, Pudge. Wear the vest with pride.
