People seeking another outdoor pastime in this new year will find fun and fellowship pitching horseshoes. A group of players, who dub themselves the All-American Horseshoe Association, gather every Tuesday at 9:30 a.m. at PebbleCreek’s Sunrise Park. Men and women alike are welcome to come try their hand at landing ringers.
“We’ve been pitching shoes weekly for about eight years,” said Ted Ingalls, the group’s organizer. “We welcome all comers and have a great time pitching and kibitzing together.”
Ingalls helps maintain the park’s four courts by regularly watering down and leveling the pits, painting and repairing the stakes and backboards, and fabricating peg scoreboards and handled rods for retrieving horseshoes while standing upright (to reduce back strain).
