GAYS MILLS - So many things seem topsy-turvy in this new COVID age we’re all living through, but summer and horseshoe pitching, it seems, are things that just can’t be stopped.
The ‘Kickapoo Valley Open’ horseshoe pitching tournament took place on Saturday, July 25, at the Kickapoo Ringers competition horseshoe pitching facility in the Log Cabin Park in Gays Mills.
The Beloit club once again brought their digital score boards to the event. Among the 37 participants were two state champions as well as last years tournament champion Ken Heinritz.Once again, Harry and Marla Heisz grilled up tasty lunchtime treats. As with last year, when about $100 was raised to benefit the Gays Mills Swimming Pool, all proceeds went to the pool.
In Class A competition there were several upsets. Every year Bun Carley and Ken Heinritz battle it out for first place. This year was Carley’s year to win the class, and Heinritz took third.
Defeating Henritz to take second place in Class A, Laura Newkirk showed that the lady ringers can get it done.
