Almost Time for Happy Birthday......

Can you believe it? In just two weeks, our beloved Oktoberfest Visits Blog will be 11 years old! Check out the very first blog post here...

After reading that post I have tears in my eye. It's amazing how our first experience has grown up. And everything in that first posting is still true today, except this link to another Blog at the time...

Keep those posts coming. While it is still only February, that first bier is not that far away.

On a Hunt

Image result for beer drinker's guide to munich shirt

Been looking on the BDG for the shirts to come back on sale to get one for my brothers but have had no luck.  Willing to pay top dollar for an XXL and a Med if any are available..  They could even already have marks on the back for keep track.  We already hit more than half already so it would not be out of place or a lie...

Oktoberfest 2016 Logo Revealed

What do you think?

The visit that started it all.

This was Chugger's first visit to the Fest. It was 6 years before the first Group Visit. That's me on the right, with other former NCR colleagues.

Standing with Chugger is Tom Baronner. Seated from left to right is Phil Bush, and a colleague from the UK who's name I cannot remember (David something I believe).

Always a classic

Let's Welcome the Newbie.....

This will be my son's first trip to the Fest.  Please feel free to shower him with the good, the bad, and maybe even the ugly. But remember the n'not for export rule'.

His name is Gregory, and he needs a handle for the blog. I know most of you do not know him, but suggest something anyway.

All the important plans are made.....

We have flight reservations and Hotel rooms at the Hotel Alfa! 

We means my son and I. His first trip to The Fest. A true newbie. We need one every year. We all need to show him how the real world works.

Now the countdown begins.
