Oktoberfest's rained out student fundraising booths to be reopened at Saturday's tailgate


10/10/14 kb

HAYS, Kan. -- Student organizations at Fort Hays State University that were approved to participate in Oktoberfest and have additional merchandise have the opportunity to sell their merchandise prior to the Homecoming football game against Missouri Western. Game time is 7 p.m.

Rain and mud hurt business for many organizations for which Oktoberfest sales are an important source of funding.

Tables will be set up outside of the stadium on the northwest side prior to the game, and organizations can sell their merchandise from those tables. Sales are limited to the merchandise that was approved by the Oktoberfest committee, and only merchandise is allowed, no food items or beer.

If an organization plans to take advantage of this opportunity, they should notify Jacob Ternes (pronounced TURN-iss), coordinator of student involvement and Greek life, at jaternes@fhsu.edu to ensure enough tables are available.

Questions can be directed to Ternes in the Center for Student involvement via email or during normal business hours at 785-628-4664.
