Hello,
I know I could probably just do the math from the countdown post, but just seem too hard this morning. So, when are the dates for the 2005 Oktoberfest? Just curious!
Danke!
Greg

See you there Sunskin! Ever been to the horrid-sounding 100 Club on the 16th?

Where abouts is the 100 Club? I think I’d fear for my safety around that many ruckus Aussies and Kiwis. Just booked flights to Salzburg… hope it’s not too much of a nightmare getting between the cities!

Gettin between cities is very easy. I think the train funs every hour. I was on that train a few weeks ago and I thin it was about 1 hour 20 mins. I was based in Munich and we to Salzburg for the day.

There is a pass you can get called the Bayern ticket that is good for like 5 people to travel together for 30 euros or something like that it has been a few years. But it is only on certain trains every other hour. And it is the slow stop everywhere train but you cant beat the price!

I was definately there in 2001 (in body anyways).

I remember having a few quiet beers with Aussie-Ange and luv beers (among others), at a bar a couple of blocks away from Oktoberfest.

cheers

I missed Grins by only 30 mins that day, as I hooked-up with LuvBeers & AAnge just after that… We will definately meet-up this time around… E-mail me with your specifics…

Beachdj7@earthlink.net

I will be at the Hotel Senefelder for three nights, then staying at my friends place (dopplezimmer above the pub) – at Schwanthaler str. 88 (literally about 150 steps from the fest entrance!) – for one night… We will wind-up at the Hotel Excelsior, just off Bayer strasse, and only steps from the Hbf – the last two nights. I will give Chris & Ange & Grin my cell number, as soon as I get it…

Sunskin,

Trying to secure a job in either Dusseldorf or Regensburg before i book Oktoberfest. I have a couple job interviews next week so hopefully in the near future i would have some dates sorted out.

I have a friend living in Munich so accomodation is not a problem.

Keep you posted

Sounds good sir. IMHO… Regensburg would be fantastic! Only an hour ride to Munchen, and it is a very nice town…

Jesus I can barely remember last year! Every year I have to go though my pics to remember what everyone looks like.
