Consider it an appetizer before the main course: The 35th Annual University of Okoboji Winter Games Weekend was off to a fast start Thursday night with the Tiki in the Tent Locals Party featuring the Battle of the Bartenders at Parks Marina. Events continue Friday with card games, indoor golf and Boy Scout pancakes in the morning. The chili cook-off is a Friday night highlight. A lack of stable ice has prompted venue changes for some outdoor activities, but the weather should be mild for a full slate of activities Saturday and Sunday.
