Tournament Results

  • BELLEVILLE results for 8-9-2014 are posted. There were 21 entries in this event. The tournament championship patch went to Melvin Jeardoe holding off Gary Fulton and Robert Washburn who both had their eye on that spot as well. A big thank you to Larry Wise from the NE. charter who introduced a new NHPA member Dale Caldwell from the NE. charter to organized horseshoe pitching. Dale won class C going 6-1 with a 29.9 ringer average. It is always a treat to see someone pitch really well in their very first sanctioned event. I am certain that you will be seeing this young fella again when you make your next trip to Belleville for a horseshoe tournament.
