Oktoberfest article 10 12 thumb

The annual Oktoberfest tournament marks the end of the Guns & Hoses "Regular Season" leaving only the prestigious T.O.C. (Tournament of Champions) as the 2012 season finale. This years Oktoberfest was held under beautiful clear blue fall skies making for picture perfect cool coastal softball weather that hovered around 72 degrees all day long. Eighteen Public Safety teams in 3 separate divisions battled for Guns & Hoses glory at the Huntington Beach Sports Complex this past Sunday.

This was a "Double Points" tourney which allowed teams to earn valuable points towards the season long points chase for a "Team Set" of WORTH bats. With so many teams in the hunt in Divisions I and II everything was still up for grabs. Even after this weekend, the Division II points Championship is Still up for grabs between a few teams and the overall champs will be determined by the points earned during the TOC on Sunday November 4th.

The G & H atmosphere was filled with the usual high energy and rockin tunes. DJ "G" Spot was spinning the tunes while Jolie and Michelle from the Massage Zone were on hand helping athletes with old softball injuries as well as preventing any future ailments as well.

As always, the competition was tight with lots of close games while the camaraderie was in full swing with good times had by all in attendance. In the spirit of Oktoberfest, teams battled for bragging rights as well as the coveted prize of a case of Jagermeister to each Championship Division winning team (whether they wanted it, or not).
