First time on Oktoberfest: A Schafkopf competition
Festwirt Peter Inselkammer had already tested his idea on a smaller scale with a Wiesn Schafkopf tournament in 2018, and that was so well received that he decided: "This year we're going to do it professionally!" That means: 180 participants, supervised by tournament director Stefan Aldenhoven of the Schafkopfschule e.V., which also supports the free game on other Wiesn days with advice and day. So if you are not quite sure how to deal with Eichel-Ober or Herz-Sau or if you have any doubts whether a Gras-Wenz has a chance with your hand, you can get expert advice.
Today, however, it was more the professionals who were at work: after all, it wasn't a question of victory bonuses like calf shoulders or a bottle of schnapps, as is often the case with normal sheep head tournaments, but of a Wiesn table for 10 people, including a measure and a chicken, in the Armbrustschützenzelt in 2020. Not only the winner, but also silver and bronze are looking forward to the next Wiesn and the visit of the Inselkammer family. By the way, the Armbrustschützenzelt will donate the entry fees and other donations to a charitable cause!
