Dear Skat friends,

You will be excited to hear that the first tournaments of 2021 has been scheduled. The news comes from Santa Monica and Cleveland, who will be hosting the first and second US tournament of 2021 on June 5/6 and July 31/ August 1. Bill confirmed that weather permitting the pre-tournament on July 30 as well as the tournament will be played outdoors. See all the details on the tournament flyer from the link below.

It is still not clear, whether travel into the US will be permitted at that time, but with a bit of luck and lots of vaccinations completed then, the return to our beloved game in person is now at the horizon.
