Our club is fortunate to be the host each year of the World Team Horseshoe Tournament.The Beloit club will host the Team World Championships May 13-15 2005 at Telfer Park—the 16th straight year the event will be held here. This is the most important event of the year for our club and the biggest fundraiser.Some of the best horseshoe pitchers in the World come to Beloit each year to compete for the "Team World Cup".We also host several other tournaments during the year and encourage all members to compete in them and to help us run them.We also would like to see more of our members compete in other nearby tournaments as well as the State Tournament (September 4-5-6 2004 in Platteville Wisconsin) and the World Tournament which will be held July 26th-August 7th 2004 in Pocatello Idaho.
The last very important event of the year which we would like to see every member take part in is our annual Banquet which is usually held the first or second Sunday in October.This is when we enjoy a good meal together and distribute the club awards,the NHPA awards and the prize money which we work so hard for all summer.
We trust that you will enjoy the competition,the fellowship and sportsmanship as this is what horseshoe pitching is all about.Have a good time!!
