Horseshoes

Horseshoe pitching will continue through the summer at South Pagosa Park.

Players of all abilities (ages 12 and up) are welcome. This activity is for anyone wanting to learn the game and how to pitch, as well as anyone who already knows and wants to improve. Physical requirements are minimal.

There is plenty of room so, if players desire, they can practice by themselves until comfortable. If anyone would like instruction, veteran players are usually present to provide advice.

The fun begins each Wednesday at 4 p.m. Horseshoes will be provided. There is no cost involved.

For more information, call Mark Bergon at 264-2838.
