    Note from the club organizing this event: The partial government shutdown DOES NOT affect the Oktoberfest Volksmarch at JBLM (Ft Lewis) this Saturday. The MWR Group putting on Oktoberfest is paid by a different fund. The I-5 Exit Number ( 121) in the Pathfinder was incorrect. Take Exit 120 Off I-5 and follow signs to “Lewis Main.” After entering the base go through two traffic lights and turn RIGHT at the 3rd light (Liggit). You will see a huge white tent on the left by the bowling alley.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
