LA CROSSE, Wisconsin (WXOW) – Winter Rec Fest's annual Euchre Tournament brought people from all across the state to the Eagle's Club Saturday.
A group of 80 people competed in the card game. For each round, players were divided into tables of four.
Jeff Schuman traveled all the way from Madison to compete.
He said he's been coming to the euchre tournament for 22 years and uses the day to catch up with old friends.
"The love for the game, the camaraderie between people that you see once a year," Schuman said. "Most of the people up here I see once a year. So it's nice to come up here once a year and see the same people and play cards and have a few drinks."
A couple of years back, Schuman won the entire tournament. He went back to Madison with a $150 prize.
