Our third event on the Horseshoe Tour this year is out west again, in Winnemucca, NV on August 17-18, the deadline for entries is August 7th. This is also our third event in Winnemucca, and is played indoors at the Event Center there, on portable courts. The facility is one of the best we’ve ever played at, and Kim Peterson and his staff do a great job getting everything ready for play. Winnemucca is located in northern Nevada, there is plenty to do there, including ghost towns, gold mines, casinos, and even two tournaments on the weekend prior to the tour event. We had a great event there last year, it will be even better this year! More info coming……

On Saturday, August 10th, there will be a non-sanctioned doubles tournament at the Winnemucca Events Center, and on Sunday, August 11th will be a sanctioned singles tournament, both directed by Elaine Perry, of NV.

For all those pitchers out there playing in Winnemucca this weekend. Don’t forget to stop by the Winners Casino Friday August 9th for the two tournament weekend, and again on Friday, August 16th for the Horseshoe Tour event, both from 6:00 to 8:00 PM for a players reception.

Gaston County Clash – Lowell, NC

Like our first tournament in SC, there is a rain chance for the Gaston County Clash event in Lowell, NC, more in the form of thunderstorm chance than steady rain, but you never know. We have had some inquiries concerning this, but nothing changes for us. We will go with our normal playing times (as indicated on the summary sheet), there could be some delays or changes, if we have to adjust for weather, and to get our qualifying shoes in. Just to remind you of our drop out policy, if you choose not to attend, you must notify us immediately, prior to the tournament, and we will refund a portion of your entry fee. If we were to cancel the whole event, which has only happened one time in eleven years, all players will get a complete refund. Look forward to seeing everyone this weekend!

The 2019 Gaston County Clash will be hosted by GO Gaston and Gaston County Parks & Recreation. Visit gogaston.org to find things to do in your downtime in Gaston County.

2019 SummerFun Tournament Info

Because of the circumstances of weather in Newberry, we have decided that we will refund $50 each for players in the Prime Divisions, that decide not to attend. This is the amount paid for last place in the tournament. This would be ONLY if you contact Ron Taylor by 4:00 Friday, by phone, email, messenger, or text, so we can readjust the setup. This is not our normal procedure, and only because of the threat of rain and storms this weekend. The tournament will be played, but the consensus now is to play a 4 game qualifying round (120 shoes), to avoid the delays that are sure to happen.

The 2019 Newberry summary sheet is now posted. Click on “Tournament Info” on the menu bar at the top of this page, then click on “Newberry Entries”.

Newberry will also host the “Pork in the Park” Festival on Saturday, the same weekend of the SummerFun Tour event. The activities are located in the square, across from the Hampton Inn, if you like bar-b-q, you will love this. The Pork in the Park event will not only be Saturday this year, it will be Friday night also with a bluegrass band and BBQ for sale from 5pm to 8pm.

The room block for the host hotel in Newberry has been set, and once again, because of the festival that weekend, we only have 20 rooms available first come, first serve. When you call, ask for the “SummerFun” rate, rooms are $114 per night. The direct number to the hotel is 803-276-6666. The Hampton Inn is located in the center of town, adjacent to the Opera House, and the Pork in the Park festivities. Only about a mile from the courts. The final day to reserve a room is March 27th, check in time is 3:00 PM.

The hotdog eating contest is back on again this year during the Newberry, SC Horseshoe Tour event!! It will be on Friday evening at 6:30 PM, at the Martin Street Beer Parlor (Bubba’s) There’s a new wrinkle this year though, it’s two person teams that will compete. We will take the first 12 people who contact us, and we will draw for partners on site before we start. We will post the names as soon as we are full. If you don’t enter, just come on out and have some fun watching, and cheering on the contestants.
