GHB Oktoberfest 2008

Rog and I would like to welcome you to a little photo synopsis of Oktoberfest 2008 at GHB (photo by Tracy). A bunch of folks took a bunch of great pictures and I've tried to include a few in this post. It was hard to pick which ones to use and there are a bunch out there that I haven't even seen yet. You can view Frank's photos at his web site. I will try to give credit to the photographer who took the below photos.
(just click above on "Frank's photos"
and you'll link directly to his site)
I will 'be frank', some of the names have been abbreviated to protect the innocent. Well here we go, this is how October 11th progressed ...

The day started out very well for Tim with this catch from the boat launch at the creek!

ALL the food was the BEST, ALL the libations were the BEST, ALL the decorations and costumes/entertainment were the BEST!


Thank YOU for the Shoreline Soup Kitchen donations (70 lbs. of food!). Thank YOU for setting up and cleaning up. Thank YOU for bringing your friends and family. Thank YOU for coming and eventually going home ... Thank YOU for firewood and hayride trailer and cups and pumpkins and chairs and tables! ... and thank YOU for all the stuff I forgot to mention ...
