Sign up now

Now is the time. If you think you have the skills to compete with some of the finest horseshoe pitchers in Southeastern Connecticut, if not the world, sign up now by posting a comment. You can also email me at The festivities begin at 1:00 on Saturday July 11th. If you are a regular follower of this blog you know that the new pits are in (see below). Already there have been some highly competitive games. Mott and Tim (the old guys) took 3 of 3 from Doug and Will (the college boys). There has been a lack of hot chicks at the pits (except for Heather), so ladies, please stop by and show us your skills.

Safety No-No

You would think a former winner would know better than to cross the caution tape and walk in front of the pit. (Note the spectacular form of the former one time runner-up)

Pits are installed

Sunday April 26, 2009 marked the beginning of a new era in horseshoedom. The new state of the art pits have been installed. And I did it without the help of the naysayers who tell me the only tool I can use is a cellphone (to call for help). The first official game was played the following Saturday between Bill Middleton and yours truly. As you can see, the pits are now almost completely level (thanks to Mott Hinckley for the superb landscaping complete with grass and everything)
