the oktoberfest poster 2017

each year the oktoberfest poster is announced and people (including me) criticise the choice of the “experts”. this year the muenchen town council have decided to allow the general public (i.e me and you) to help with the deselection process.

people can vote on their website and it will help take the choice down from 49 posters to the top 30. a jury of experts will then make the final choice.  using the general public to narrow down from 49 to 30 is really not that much of an influence on the outcome – but I guess its a start.

the final winner is announced on feb 1st.

that picture of me

if you are wondering who captured that picture of me at the top of the blog – thanks go out to Celticon Photography based in Munich.

Roger caught me while I dropping off Stadtkapelle Germering for the start of the Trachten- und SchĂĽtzenzug during Oktoberfest 2015. (hey Phil – look at the camera before the police move our bus on).

Roger takes great pics – the majority of my facebook profile shots come via him.
