Horseshoe tossers feel the heat

From the July 15, 2009 Issue

The horseshoe tournaments continue through the summer beginning at 9 a.m. on Wednesdays and Saturdays at Anna Maria City Hall. Thank goodness for the shade provided by the lush native landscaping there.

Two teams qualified for the playoffs on Wednesday, July 8. Steve Grossman and Jay Disbrow defeated John Johnson and Nol Sanchez by a score of 21 to 13 to bring home the trophy.

Two teams qualified for the playoffs on Saturday, July 11. Hank Huyghe and Jeff Moore had a commanding lead of 13 to 1 over Steve Doyle and Sam Samuels only to stall in the stretch and loose 23 to 14. The comeback was likened to the Tampa Bay Rays of last year.

You don’t have to pay, be good or belong to a club to play. Just show up at least 15 minutes before play begins. It’s a good way to meet new friends, even if you’re just here on vacation for a week. Who knows how good you might be?
