Horseshoe players from around British Columbia will participate in the 55th annual Summerland Horseshoe Tournament this weekend.

The tournament will take place Aug. 13 and 14, beginning at 9 a.m. each day, in Memorial Park.

Nick Culic, a member of the horseshoe club, said the event bring in 50 to 60 participants.

“I would think we’re going to be busy,” he said.

At present, some players from as far away as Terrance and Vancouver Island have registered.

The tournament is a precursor to the B.C. Senior Games, which will be held in Castlegar later next week.

The games, which will include horseshoe tournaments, will be held next week Wednesday to Friday.

To accommodate the players in Summerland, Culic hopes to have recreational vehicle parking available near Memorial Park.

The Summerland Horseshoe Tournament has 23 members, including five new players this year.

Culic said five Summerland members are preparing for the B.C. Senior Games.

“Let’s hope we bring home gold medals,” he said.

In addition to the B.C. Senior Games, members will also attend the B.C. Championships in Cloverdale in September.
