October means two things for certain.....

Recommended Posts

I made some time at noon today to make my way to the Kitchener City Hall for the kick-off to the 40th K-W Oktoberfest and of course the tapping of the keg, not that I could get close enough to see it all. It was my first time going to the opening ceramony after 20 years of festhallen, so this was something new to me. The sausage and beers were already flyin by noon on the temps creeping over 20C leading into a great looking long weekend!

 

so enjoy and "Ein Prosit" to all!!!

 

oh, and check out my fish I caught yesterday on the Maitland...

There's Walter Ostenak in the middle loading up on the accordian and belting out the chicken dance to kick it off.

It was a nice relaxing three hours floating down the Maitland. The water was high, fast and clearing.

I saw a pool with two old boots swimming around and I saw a couple decent steelies in other deeper pools, with me only having bass gear! :huh:

 

Looks like a some great fall fishing on rivers with extended fall season's!

Thanks to Oktoberfest I retired from drinking in 1985. Still have the pic of me and Walter onstage together at Queensmount arena from that night. I'll have to scan that one sometime :stretcher:.
