Horseshoe Tournament at Loon Lake brings out the best

Happenings in the Loon Lake area

There was a good turnout of players for the annual horseshoe tournament at Loon Lake on July 31.

A total of 28 teams vied for the honour of having their names engraved on the Isaac and Margot Hendricks Memorial Trophy.

After four hours of playing, the winning team proved to be Trevor Hunt and George Malmsten.  Second place was earned by Sandra Dowding and Laurie Ladoski.  Many very close games were played and everyone enjoyed themselves.

The weather was much improved and, compared to all the smoke in the air during last years tournament, this year the air was clean but cool.

The tournament was concluded with a chicken barbeque which was enjoyed by the players and their families and friends.

These events require many hours of volunteer time and the LLCRAS would like to express many thanks to all those who volunteered to clean up the horseshoe pitch area on July 15, and to all  those  who worked to prepare the salads, cook the chicken, organize the tournament, run the concession and did the clean-up.

A special thanks to the Borri family for stepping in at the last minute to get barbeque racks when our regular source could not supply them.

We hope to see everyone out again next year and congratulations to all the players – practiced and novices- for many good games well played.
