You may have had a busy holiday weekend, and maybe you can’t even think about planning for the SETX Octoberfest, but there are only 32 days left to prepare.  I can help you.

Day 32-Wean yourself off of flaxseed oil.

Please start today.  You wouldn’t want a fate like the Mucilaginous Buddies.  :o

Maybe we shouldn't just do initials on logs any more.  We wouldn't want to be confused with the Mucilaginous Buddies

Yes, it was me.  I bought 50 lbs.  I figure one lb of beets per person.  I didn't want to make too little, and see the disappointed people like when we ran out last year.

Don't I remember.  You were inconsolable.

Now I don't want to be accused of any favoritism, but I will save an extra big helping just for you.  I don't want you to run out of tissues again.

The SETX Octoberfest is only one month away.  Don’t despair if you haven’t been preparing.  There is still time.

Day 30:

Practice saying the following in a convincing tone, “Officer, it was only one squirrel.”

You wouldn’t want what happened to OneSquirrelCloser last SETX Octoberfest.

On a side note, I understand that they should be done with their community service any week now.  O0

You know, OneSquirrelCloser does not attend events out of the Park and Gab portal.  I think they may have attended a Snoogans event once, but they were at the corner gathering seeds and grains for winter.  I think you may be confused with *Squirrel Puppet*.

I think you are right.  Now that I think of it, he did look rather Puppetty.

SETX Octoberfest is less than a month away!  For your safety, please plan ahead.

Day 29:

Plug in local hospitals into your navigation system.

Let’s face it, several of you are never going to make it back.  I can’t save everyone.

Remember last year?

Mrs. Captain Kirk had just finished the last strenuous ritual, and started clutching her chest, then fell to the ground.  At the same time, Mr. Mucilaginous Buddies got a paper cut.  I had to choose who to help.  It was an easy decision. I placed a nice clean Band-aid on the paper cut, and … um…. well Mrs. Captain Kirk was just another statistic of fate at the SETX Octoberfest.

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?  

 Please tell me there are pictures!  :2funny:

Here's a video of Fendmar and Georeynozos

And then 2 newbies made it into the

That video is hilarious! :2funny: 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?  :(
