In mid-January each year, STM hosts a Sheepshead Tournament, open to anyone who wants to stop in and play some cards on a cold afternoon. Players receive a commemorative deck of St. Thomas More High School playing cards, and enjoy food and beverages throughout the day. The tournament consists of three rounds of 15 or 18 hands (depending on the number of players at each table). After rounds one and two, the tables are shuffled and the total aggregate score of all three rounds determines the winner.
Past champions include:2016 – Mark Steffes 2015 – Adam Arndt (TM ’97) 2014 – Ed Knutson 2013 – Ron Wardius (SF ’55) 2012 – Mike Kraemer 2011 – Brian Lussier (TM ’97) 2010 – Andy Plewa (TM ’04) 2009 – Peter Nagel
