We are very excited to get out to St. George, UT for the Red Rock Championship tour event, and we want to thank everyone involved there for their hard work preparing for the tournament. As entries start to come in, don’t forget that the host hotel for this tournament is the Red Lion, and the rates are very reasonable for such a nice hotel. Most of our activities away from the courts will be taking place there (reception, card game, etc) and as a player, you know the host hotel reduces rates to accommodate all of us while we are in town. Our staff, and a number of players so far have booked there, and it is very important that you support the tour, the site, and the folks who arranged this for us, by using the Red Lion for your stay on that weekend. Remember also that all info pertaining to the St. George event, including the hotel info, and a list of entries, is located on the right side of our website under “Coming tournament information”, just click on “St. George information” and get your entry in if you plan on attending.
We have a number of checks for this year that haven’t been cashed, I guess people just don’t need the money like I do If you are one of these players, and you know who you are, please cash your checks where we can keep our records straight. I don’t want have to call people at the end of the year again, trying to balance our books.
The 2016 Cajun Coast Classic, site located just outside Morgan City, in Patterson, LA is our next event on the schedule. This is our second trip there after a successful tournament last fall. We expect even a higher number of entries than last year, and better weather for sure. The Amelia Belle Riverboat Casino will again host the reception on Friday evening, and the host hotel will again be the Hampton Inn & Suites. The Morgan City Visitor’s Bureau has been very gracious in their efforts, and the local club there really goes out of the way to make everyone feel at home. The food they provided was awesome last year, and I’m sure it will be the same this year! If you missed this tournament last year, don’t make the same mistake this year, get your entry in, you will have a blast. The deadline for the entries is Wednesday, October 5th. All information concerning this event is located to the right side of this page under “Morgan City Information”.
The second half of the 2016 Horseshoe Tour season begins in Buffalo, TX on September 17-18. This site has hosted four previous events, and has one of the nicest facilities we have played at, with 32 sand courts, 8 covered, office building, concession building, and covered walks to and from the pitching area. Buffalo has drawn a large number of entries over the years, and we don’t expect anything different this year. These are some of the nicest people you can meet, and they are gracious hosts as well, you will not be disappointed when you attend one of their events. One reason for the high turnouts there is the Friday night doubles, named the “Buffalo Stampede” which is associated with the local festival there, and has a $5,000 payout. With the Stampede Friday night, and tour event Saturday and Sunday, this is well over a $10,000 weekend, and we are excited once again to be there. Remember, all information for Buffalo is posted in the menu, on the right side of this website, titled “Buffalo, TX Information”.
