According to Wikipedia, Oktoberfest is the world's largest Volksfest (beer festival and travelling funfair) held annually in Munich, Bavaria, Germany. In celebration of our German heritage automobiles, the Palmetto Region PCA will be having its own Oktoberfest weekend Saturday & Sunday, October 10 & 11, 2015.
The fun starts on Saturday with attendance at the Mount Pleasant Cars & Coffee at Towne Center outside of the Atlanta Bread Company (starts approximately 8 am with folks coming and going sometimes until 11 am, 1712 Towne Centre Way, Mount Pleasant, SC 29464).

The Gimmick Rally will challenge you to answer questions by finding certain landmarks hidden in plain site on the nearby barrier islands. If there is a line of cars at the pickup location, each car will be released for the adventure with a 3 minute gap between participants.
Bring your rally results to dinner at The Islander on Daniel Island at 7 pm (160 Fairchild Street, Daniel Island). Dinner is combination of German themed and Lowcountry favorites. Served buffet style, entrees to include braised beef tips over Spaetzle, a chicken cream based pasta with veggies, and shrimp & grits plus salad, sides, and dessert.
