Get on your thinking caps, grab a deck of cards, and head to the sheepshead match to “trump” all others. Following tradition, German Fest is hosting hourly sheepshead sessions each day of the Fest. There is a new location this year, so look for the card tourney on the north end of the grounds across from the Potawatomi Bingo Tent. Anyway, if you need a refresher course in sheepshead, I found a pretty helpful link for you to visit before the sessions begin. Think you want to compete? Jot down these times and dates and good luck!
