The Oktoberfest Open Chess Champions

The Oktoberfest Open began its tradition with the NBCC in 2006 as a way to celebrate the club's rich German heritage, which dates back to as early as the 1930s. As part of this annual celebration, the club holds its Oktoberfest dinner party at a local restaurant after each tournament.
