New member meetup: old and new collide at Oktoberfest CARNAGE!

THE SCHEDULE

Just to let everyone know, Glyn and his lady Nicky will be heading from town at 1.30pm to get there for around 2pm. So if anyone wants to join them, or can't locate them when you arrive, you can get them on: [masked]

My bus gets in at 1.50pm, so I'll be heading from the castle at that time to arrive for 2.20pm-ish... I'm on:[masked]


For anyone who'd rather not walk with either of us/is arriving at another time and doesn't know the area/Chapter...

BLURB ABOUT THE EVENT FROM CHAPTER WEBSITE:

"Our German beer guy Klaus has been busy sourcing some exceptional brews for our Oktoberfest this year. From his list of 247 different beers (!), we have handpicked only the best from over a dozen breweries. Almost all the beers are new to Chapter, with breweries as small and obscure as Brauerei Herrmann (located in a Bavarian village tavern) represented. 

This year, we want to go all out to make our festival as authentic as possible, so look out for a delicious range of traditional German market snacks to accompany our beer range, and we will be decorating the main concourse to give it a bierkellar vibe.

We’ve also added an extra day to the festival, to give you even more time to enjoy a slice of Teutonic life!"


THIS IS GOING TO BE MESSY!!!:

      you'll be ok, we'll all be heading back the same way to town, so a couple of us can carry you back and put you on a train around 4am ;)... I'll put googlemap/walking directions above - it only takes about 20 mins/pretty straight from the castle

    Hi. Every meetup is a chance for new members to meet members that have been coming for some time, just rsvp and turn up. Everyone is friendly. Saying that, anyone can post a meetup on the site. Just give a time, date and location (+ perhaps brief activity description)
