Oktober danke schn
Dear Editor:The organizers of the 2005 Carbondale Oktoberfest wish to send out a huge thank-you to all who made the fourth annual event such a success. I would like to thank our sponsors: Peak Party Rentals for such an amazing setup and very generous sponsorship; High Point Brewing for the superb suds and steins; Carbondale Printing & Copy Center for the perfect posters; the Pour House for the tasty brats and Skip’s hard work and big smile; and the town of Carbondale – without your support, the fun would be impossible for me to plan.A special thanks goes out to the organizers and unbelievable volunteers of the CRMS “Run for the Kids” – we all really appreciated your time and hard work spent planning and staging the event. The race reviews that we received was that it was a challenging course, well done to you all. A big thank you to all the participants of the race, we hope you made it to the beirgaerten for a few reward drinks. Thank you so much to the Carbondale Fire Department and town manager, Tom Baker, for starting the kids and 5K race, respectively. It surely was a great spectacle. A huge thank-you goes out to the Oktoberfest workers on the day. Brian, Becky, Matt, Jack, Jeff and Chris: Without you guys the day would never happen. Thank you to Steve Gerke and the town Public Works staff for the setup and tear-down of the event; again, you guys rock. Lastly, thank you to Mother Nature for such a beautiful day, enabling all the partygoers to have such a great day. Thank you for smiling on our town.Until next year – Party on.Chris “Woodsie” WoodsCarbondale
