Donation to scouts
Terr! G. Adams, general manager of Schlitterbahn, presents a check for $1,808 to representatives of the Lone Star Girl Scout Council. Receiving the donation are Alice Nofziger, membership development executive, and Bemadine Eaton, a volunteer with the Lone Star Girl Scout Council.
Morethan 900 Girls Scouts and their families attended the park during Lone Star Girl Scout Days last year, and Schlitterbahn donated a portion of each ticket to benefit area troops. The event will be repeated Aug. 26 and 27 this year.

Skat league plans big event at Goerke’s
An entire week of skat activities are planned around the Texas State Skat League’s 3rd annual international rules WINTER SKAT TOURNAMENT to be held on Feb. 11 & 12, at Goerke’s #1 near New Braunfels. The tournament is sanctioned by 1SPA (International Skat Players Association). Entries have been received from British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, and Quebec as well as Oregon, California, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Ohio, Florida, and Texas.
Skat is the most complex member of the Euchre family of card games and has been an element of the German culture which arrived in central Texas almost 150 years ago. From a peak of over 700 players in the 1950’s, the state tournament has dropped to less than IOO in recent years. The reasons for the game’s decline arc too many and varied to cover in a short article.
Skat is played in German clubs across Canada and along the U.S. west coast. Seven local players recently participated in a tournament in Las Vegas which was sponsored by the San Diego club. Tournaments will be held at various times with the largest two being the Canadian Open in Montreal in April, and the North American Open in Vancouver in late June and cady July. A special Texas rules tournament is planned in May as part of the Sesquicentennial activities in New Braunfels.
The effort to save the game in Texas is continuing and anyone wanting to learn about, or return to, this interesting and challenging game in a friendly setting, please contact: Jim Leissner, 202 Koepsel St., Seguin, TX 78155. (210-379-2955)
