Come and enjoy the Bavarian Beer Garden in the large parking lot adjacent to the Club buiilding.  Two great bands for your entertainment.

Starting at 7:30pm the Nu-Tones Band will be in the house to keep things hopping all night long.

Lots of delicious German foods like Schnitzel, Sausages, Pork Hocks, Potato Salad and good old sauerkraut will be available on Saturday, through-out the day. Tasty German Pretzels will be on hand to curb the nibbles. Of course it wouldn't be Oktoberfest with out beer. We will have several German and Canadian beers on hand to quench your thirst.
