In 1962, the Deutscher Unterhaltungsverein (DUV) was founded for the purpose of playing German card games, Skat & Pinochle, by members of the German American Society.

The DUV is a group of amateur card players who enjoy participating in Skat–tournaments throughout the Pacific Northwest and Canada.

Please join the DUV for their monthly meetings held on the first Saturday of each month (September through June) at 5:00 pm at the German American Society building. The meetings start with a light snack and then rounds of Skat as well as rounds of Pinochle are played. Guests are always welcome to play and attend the meetings.

The DUV holds afternoon card playing sessions on the second and fourth Fridays of each month (September through May) at 2 pm at the German American Society building.

Eike Richter, at (360) 750-7968.
