Is this event more indoors or outdoors? Would a geopup be able to attend this one?

It is going to be at a pavilion in a park. I believe dogs are allowed.
In the past, there have always been lots of fun activities- some in the pavilion, and some out.  You can pick and choose which activities you'd like to do.
I always enjoy the outdoor knife toss.  All of the tossing positions have been filled, but I think there may be one catching position left because nohands55 won't be attending this year.

By all means, dogs are welcome, unlike our last 2 events this one is 100% outdoors. Besides it'll make mt dog dropping cache for the cache container contest blend in better. :2funny:

When I first read this I was thinking that you were talking about dropping dogs into a container kind of like the dropping the clothespins into a bottle game.  I then figured out what you really meant.  Either one is kind of funny.

Preparing for SETX Octoberfest is no laughing matter.  There are only 28 more days before the extravaganza, and there are many more things to do to ensure a fun, safe time. Here is what you must do today.

Day 28:
Practice for the sauerkraut eating contest.

I suggest starting the day at Sauerbucks with a double mocha kraute.

Boy I sure hope twodogkraut brings the sauerkraut ice cream again this year.

If you are going to SETX Octoberfest, please note that there are only 27 days before the festivities begin.  This next item can help you.
Day 27:
Practice your German pronunciation.

Remember, Wiener schnitzel is pronounced with a “V” sound.  Don’t embarrass yourself.

Remember last year how MunichControl kept correcting everybody?  :(

From the looks of it, there is camping. Is anyone staying overnight to cache more on Sunday?

That was my German cousin, and yeah, it was embarassing.  I would NEVER correct anyone.

BTW, contrary to popular (American) belief, weiner schnitzel is NOT a hot dog.  It is a thinly sliced cutlet of pork or veal breaded and fried, commonly served with gravy.  Think of a flat chicken-fried steak.

Oops!  Did I just correct someone? ???

I probably will. I may actually research it a bit to see what counties I need up that way.
If the weather is nice, I'll probably camp Friday night too.

Here is today’s tip when planning for SETX Octoberfest.
Day 26:

Round up to the nearest tenth.

Start practicing now or the results could be disastrous.

Remember last year what happened to zephyr.9 ?  :o

If you do decide to stay overnight, don't forget to bring anti-Brocken spectre material.  If you want, I can send you a 329 page condensed list of the most effective, popular items to bring.

Why a condensed version? What are you leaving out?  ???

There are really 342 pages, but, quite frankly, no one has proven that those other methods will really repel the Brocken spectre.     
For example, at last year’s SETX Octoberfest, AMTA went camping.  They used method 2346 as listed on page 340.  “Place your tent 39 degrees north of the largest tree.  Place 14 palmetto fronds adjacent to the southwest corner of the tent. Put three drops of eucalyptus oil on the poles.  Scatter 19 kefir lime leaves all around the tent.  All of these items must be done simultaneously at 8PM while reciting (in Japanese) the last scene of Godzilla.”

We all know that, according to The Vidor Herald Sun, the only thing left at the campground the next day was an old calculator.

Look, maybe AMTA didn’t follow the instructions correctly, or they tried to take the easy way out by not picking a method with more steps, so I decided to condense the handbook, eliminating the ones that didn’t work.

You’re welcome. :angel:
