      > This event always seems to turn into our biggest and best ride of the year. Oktoberfest themed scooter games, brats on the grill, traditional Oompah music, a beautiful scenic ride around the lake to view the area's best fall foliage, and plenty of Gemutlichkeit make up this festive day. Lake Geneva also has their annual Oktoberfest celebration that day but this year we are partnering up with Sprecher's in LG and their Oktoberfest party where they have live music, great food, and MassKrug! The day begins at Midwest Action Cycle (251 Host Dr. Lake Geneva, WI) around 11am for some music, food, and scooter games. This year we have some "new" games such as Scooter Jousting, Brat Bite, and a great Oktoberfest themed Gymkhana! As usual we will have prizes for "Best Dressed Bavarian" so break out the Dirndl's and Lederhosen and get into the festive spirit. We are getting Flat Iron Park again for exclusive scooter parking and more festivities and we should arrive there around 3pm. Also, Harbor Shores has discounted rooms for us so if anyone wants to celebrate Oktoberfest the right way and stay the night, you are set. Mention Skootoberfest when booking. It should be another great day of scootering with the Scoot Jockeys so come on out.

Also, everyone will get a "Skootoberfest Goodie Bag" that will include an official embroidered patch, button, sticker, can koozie, key chain, and a coupon that is good for discounts at Sprechers Oktoberfest celebration. There will also be official Skootoberfest shirts for sale that day only.

      > 11AM - 1PM REGISTRATION AND SCOOTER GAMES! The games for Skootoberfest are always the most fun. We are going to try some new games this year such as "Scooter Jousting" where riders try to compete against each other to collect rings on their jousters to accumulate points. "Brat Bite" is a two person game with a rider and passenger. A bratwurst is hung from a string and the passenger has to actually get a bite of the brat while moving. The rider can not put their foot down during this attempt. This one is hilarious to watch!... We will also have an Oktoberfest themed Gymkhana which is basically an obstacle course where the rider has to make it through the course as fast as possible. Winners of these events will get prizes.......There will be bratwurst, pretzels, soda, and water for sale during these games along with some old fashioned Bavarian Oompah music to set the tone for these hilarious events...Sorry no beer.......yet.

      > 1PM - 3PM FALL FOLIAGE GROUP RIDE
      > After the games, we will all embark on a beautiful ride to view the area's best fall colors. The leaves seem to be changing a little earlier this year so it should be great. The ride is still TBD but will be safe for 50cc riders. We will attempt to stay together but everyone will have maps and the roads will be marked to make it as easy as possible and allow your group to go "at your own pace". There will be a stop in between to take a break and get gas if necessary but if the weather is good, it will be about an hour and a half ride. If it is a little chilly, we have a shorter ride planned.

      > 3PM - ??? ARRIVE AT FLAT IRON PARK IN LAKE GENEVA FOR EXCLUSIVE SCOOTER PARKING AND THE OKTOBERFEST CELEBRATIONS Parking in Lake Genenva for their Oktoberfest is almost impossible so we rented Flat Iron Park in downtown Lake Geneva for our own private parking, music, and maybe a few more scooter games. For those who attended Amerivespa, that's the same park we had for that. Also, it is located right next to Sprechers where they are having their annual "Sprechtoberfest". There they will have live music, food, games, and of course a beer tent where you can get "Das Boot"! Sprechers is famous for their beer and they have a seasonal Oktoberfest Beer that is awesome. Lake Geneva also has their 21st annual Oktoberfest party on Broad and Main St. where they have a little more of a family friendly atmosphere with pumpkin carving and fall crafts. That is also walking distance from the park. When we get to the park, we will also crown our King and Queen for "Best Dressed Bavarians" and give out a few other prizes. We have the park until 8pm so everyone can leave their scooters there until then.
