Horseshoe players from around British Columbia will compete in Summerland this weekend.

Horseshoe players from around British Columbia will compete in Summerland this weekend.

The Summerland Horseshoe Club is sponsoring the 56th annual Horseshoe Pitching Tournament Aug. 11 and 12 in Memorial Park.

Nick Culic of the Summerland Horseshoe Club said the tournament will bring players from the rest of the Okanagan Valley and beyond.

After this tournament, he said some of the players will go on to compete at the provincial level in Vancouver and at the B.C. Senior Games.

Last year, the Okanagan was represented by four players from Summerland and one from Vernon. All five brought back medals.

He said the horseshoe club in Summerland used to have many members.

While it is still vibrant, he would like to see more joining in the future.

“We really need to get some younger people to be involved,” he said.”
