LET'S MAKE 2020 A GREAT YEAR AT OUR BIGGEST TOURNAMENT , THE PAUL STEWART OPEN.
SUPPORT IT AND PLEASE GET THE WORD OUT TO YOUR FRIENDS
Greetings to all horseshoe pitchers and Happy New Year! It will soon be time for shoes to start flying in the state of North Carolina and we look forward to seeing old friends and new faces in 2020. As many of you already know we no longer have the Dogwood Tournament which lasted for 50 years BUT we are excited about the replacement tournament – THE PAUL STEWART OPEN! This tournament is open to all skill levels and is scheduled for April 25th in Statesville NC. This is a one day tournament but as in years past the courts will be open on Friday evening for practice and Sunday reserved should we not be able to complete the tournament on Saturday. Trophies and prize money awarded based on entries.
I am happy to say that Paul Stewart will, once again, co-host this tournament and we are working hard to provide a great tournament for all who attend. As in years past we will mail out an entry form to the previous year’s entrants; AND/OR, you can find an entry form on our website: nc-horseshoepitching.com; OR, you can simply write out your information and mail to me: Carolyn Lloyd, 2223 Old Greensboro Rd, Chapel Hill NC 27516. If you have questions my email is: email@example.com. We like to make it as simple as possible for you to enter because we look forward to seeing all of you on our courts.
I’d like to ask everyone’s help in getting this information out to any and all who might be interested in joining us for this tournament honoring Paul Stewart and his many contributions to the sport of horseshoe pitching both as a promoter and a great pitcher.
Wishing all – health, happiness and lots of ringers and once again looking forward to seeing old friends and new faces on the courts in 2020!
From modest roots, with 20 local pitchers in central North Carolina, the NC-HPA has spread out in all directions to cover the entire state from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the beaches of the Atlantic Ocean with a present membership of 100 and growing.
Twenty Years later, in 1979 and again in 1983 the NHPA held its highest-ranking tournament, the World Tournament in Statesville, North Carolina.
Today, we have an active group of pitchers participating in sanctioned tournaments every weekend from March to November.
