The 57th annual Texas State Championship Partners Domino Tournament highlights an activity-packed weekend in Hallettsville.
"We have domino players coming in from all over the state," said Ken Henneke, one of the event organizers. "We expect between 275 and 300 players to take part in the tournament. It's also a time of fellowship with people who come back year after year, and visit with old friends and make new ones."
Domino action begins at 9 a.m. Sunday at the Knights of Columbus Hall, 321 U.S. Highway 77.
A barbecue chicken dinner will be served for dining in or take out. Cold beverages and short orders will also be available.
Activities begin Friday night when the doors of the hall open at 5 p.m. for the annual wild-game supper. Lavaca County wild game chefs will prepare deer, hog, dove, crawfish, duck gumbo, sausage, wild rice and pinto beans.
Supper will be served from 5:30 to 11 p.m.
The winners of the Knights of Columbus Big Buck Contest will be on display and drawings will be held for more than $40,000 in prizes.
Admission to the hall is $10, which includes a free supper.
