Each division will be divided into 6-person classes. Athletes will be placed in the classes according to their ability (ringer percentage). Within each class, competition will consist of round robin single matches. Games will be 40-point cancellation or 40- or 50-shoe games. “Count all” may be used in some classes.
NOTE: All athletes should check-in at the horseshoe courts at the Community Building by 9:00 AM the day of competition, unless otherwise notified. Competition may begin at that time. Pitchers are responsible for bringing their own horseshoes.
This tournament is open to everyone, including non-Iowa Hawkeye Horseshoe Pitchers Association members. Those pitchers who belong to IHHPA will use their ringer percentage. First time pitchers, without a ringer percentage, can determine their percentage by throwing 50 shoes. If you need to qualify prior to playing in the tournament contact the commissioner, Jan Warwick, at 515-290-6281.
