Rocks Oktoberfest 2004

On 16th October, 2004 Rotary Club of Koh Samui, ROCKS, held its first Oktoberfest. This very German festival is normally staged in Munich, but with a sizeable German membership, the club decided that it was appropriate to hold a tropical version of this event.
Marquees were erected on the Beach behind Long Beach Resort,and mainly German foods and Beers were sold to eager holiday makers and expatriates alike. Indeed, some of the guests who joined in the fun, later joined the Rotary Club! ROCKS members turned out in force to help their fellow German members to BBQ the foods and sell the beers. Much of the food and drink was sponsored by generous donors, and all proceeds went towards charitabe projects. The sun shone down on the fun, as guests were entertained, partly by a DJ, and partly by ROCKS members taking a turn at the microphone. The party went on well into the night, until the food, drinks members and guests were all exhausted.
