A Schnitzelburg Street Game
Introduced to Louisville in 1800 by German immigrants, Dainty is played with a 5" stick, and a 3' stick. The 5" stick is placed on the ground, hit with the longer, then hit, airborne, as far as possible. Game revived in 1971 by George Hauck and Charlie Vettiner. The World Championship Dainty Contest is celebrated each July.
