Mark your calendars.
The SETX Gang has reserved October 10 as the date for the 2009 Octoberfest.
No official event has been posted yet, but here is their planning forum.
Octoberfest 2009

This will be the 4th year for the event.  It's been getting better every year.

The event has been published.
I don't know whether it is the trip overseas, the overflowing amounts of free beer and brats, or the fact that everyone coming to the event dresses in lederhosen, but I always have such a good time at SETX Octobrfest.

There are 37 more days until SETX Gang Octoberfest.

You know, attending the Octoberfest is not just about marking your calendars.  There is a responsibility that every cacher attending MUST perform in order to insure a safe, fun time.  Since I have been there before, I will give you a daily countdown (unless a BigBender or Donde Esta puzzle cache is published) on the things you should do in preparation for the event.
Day 37:
Practice the chicken dance now so that you will be really good at it for Octoberfest.  You wouldn’t want to embarrass yourself.

Is that a "geocaching game"?

How about the FTF dance?

No.  Remember last Octoberfest when they made fendmar dress up as a chicken and lead us all in the chicken dance?
They said that no one could have any water unless we all participated.  How could you forget that?

And then 2 newbies made it into the finals of the chicken dance.

There are only 36 days until SETX Octoberfest.  DO NOT PANIC!
I can give you some helpful hints, a sort of to do list for those new to SETX Octoberfest.
Day 36:
Make sure you have an updated will.

I actually had an appointment with the lawyer last week, but I had to reschedule for today because I couldn't decide who to leave my giant rubberband ball to.

What the *h$##* or as Kathy would say *heck*.  Oh my gosh, I could not stop laughing!!  I agree with ATMA, Fendmar is the *Barney*.  Loved the last part where he was thrown over the fence.  Thanks for the laugh!!

OK.  I will leave you my giant rubberband ball.  Do you have 8 ft or 12 ft ceilings?

There are only 35 more days until SETX Octoberfest.  Even if you have been to it before, you can still use this countdown to help you when planning to attend the extravaganza.

Day 35:
Last day to order lederhosen from www.lederhosen&things.com so you can get it in time.

Remember, there is NOTHING WORSE than showing up to SETX Octoberfest wearing last year’s lederhosen.  :-[

Has someone begun brewing the *SETX Octoberfest beer*  I know one of our fellow geocachers has a *micro-brewery* or a *still* somewhere out there.  :D

Not only has it been brewed; it's also been consumed by Mrs. Davarle.  How else do you think she comes up with this stuff?
