Cajun Coast Classic

Cajun Coast Classic Horseshoe Tour Tournament in Morgan City, LA, Dates October 10-11 (this upcoming weekend) Update:

BREAKING NEWS! THIS TOURNAMENT HAS BEEN CANCELED.

It is clear that this tropical storm named Delta, soon to be hurricane Delta, is going to severely impact play of this tournament this weekend in Morgan City, LA. At best, it is almost certainly going to wash out Saturday pitching entirely, leaving us with only Sunday to work with and most likely, not the whole day… and that’s the best we can expect. The worst is unthinkable! The Morgan City area is actually looking at possible evacuation plans, so that should tell you how serious this storm is. It’s the real deal and we have no choice but to cancel this event.
We wanted to give you all as much notice as possible, as we know many of you will be leaving to get there in the next day or so. There will soon be a more official announcement of this here, telling you this same thing and how entry fees will be refunded, etc. But I figured since we just made the call that we should tell you ASAP. I’m really sorry to break this news. We were all looking forward to this trip and to seeing everyone; most of you for the first ime in a long time. But trust me, this was the right call.

Bobby White, Tour President

PS, please share this with anyone you think may be attending this tournament… and thank you for your helpin spreading the word!

2020 Cajun Coast Classic

We are excited about the final (and only) Horseshoe Tour event of the year in Morgan City/Patterson, Louisiana. Due to the limited number of rooms available in the area because of the recent hurricane, this year’s host hotel will be the Clarion Inn in Morgan City. The hotel is attached to the Morgan Restaurant, where a lot of us have visited on Sunday afternoons after the tournament to eat. We will only have 20 rooms blocked, and the block will be released back to normal rates 10 days before the event, which will be our deadline on September 30th. The room rates will be $86.99 plus tax. A block will be set up soon, call directly 985-384-5537, make sure you ask for the Cajun Coast horseshoe tournament. Also, unfortunately, because of state, and park covid restrictions, there will be no food available at the site this year during the event as of now, so players are encouraged to bring their own food and snacks. Water, and other sealed drinks will be available. The club 50/50 raffle will take place. The good news is, we’re pitching horseshoes!

As we all are in a very unique situation this year with the Covid 19 virus, the City of Morgan City, Paterson’s Kemper Williams Park, and the Horseshoe Tour are committed to moving forward with the Cajun Coast Classic horseshoe tournament for 2020. However, this event may look a little different from previous years, because we all have to take some precautions to satisfy all invested parties. We realize that this is different from our regular tournaments, and we apologize for the inconvenience this year, but hopefully things will get back to normal soon.
Below is a list of ideas, some unfortunate, to ensure the safety and well being of our players and their families while they are in town for the event.
