These festivals recently have been given catchy names. In September, here in San Marcos, we have a Chilympiad. In Flatonia, a little town between here and Houston off I-10, this weekend there will be a Czhilispiel. This town was settled by Czechs and Germans. In nearby Shiner, home of the Spoetzl brewery and its Shiner Boc, last weekend there was a Boctober Fest. Are others of you hearing of such blendings in names of such events or is this just a local "infectuation"? Thanks, Dick Heaberlin
