Devil’s Thumb Ranch in Tabernash is hosting Tommelfest 2009 on December 12th. There will classes, competition, food, music and booze. Sounds like a grand time and they are giving away a free T-Shirt to attendees.
What is a Tommelfest? beats me but it sounds fun. Here is what the WP Chamber of Commerce says about it: “Come celebrate all things Nordic – meatballs, music by Brethren Fast, fun dancing, demos, Grog Garden, BBQ $12, relay races, keg toss, waxing clinic, free lessons from the DU Nordic team, and very probably, meatballs at Tommelfest ’09!”
Devil’s Thumb Ranch Facebook page is where I found the offer for free T-Shirts: “Facebook fans get a FREE t-shirt at Tommelfest! Tell your friends, neighbors, parents, strangers… Let’s Tommelfest Colorado! (and yes, I just turned Tommelfest into a verb…)”
