Horseshoe players from around British Columbia and beyond will be in Summerland on the weekend for the Summerland Horseshoe Club’s 59th annual tournament.

Ron Moser, president of the club, said 35 to 40 players are expected for the tournament.

“It’s probably one of the oldest tournaments going on in town,” he said.

At present, there are 16 to 18 active members in the Summerland club, including several who have competed at provincial and national competitions in the past.

While the weekend tournament does not have advancement for top players, it is sanctioned by the B.C. Horseshoe Association. Statistics will be recorded by the organization.
