The Oktoberfest Regatta and Social was held on October 22nd with six boats entered.  A beautiful fall day with no wind greeted the boats at the start line for the first race.  A few minutes after the start a front crossed the lake raising wind velocities up to 10-12 knots resulting in an exciting race.  Winds became variable and died at the end of the second race.  During a long wait for the last boat to finish it was decided by the committee to scrub the last race and head for the food.  David Grotheim won first place with Ralph in second and Mike Denholm in 3rd to end a great day on the lake.
