Horseshoe news

Horseshoe action at the Anna Maria City Hall horseshoe pits was short and sweet the week of July 8, as neither session needed a knockout round to determine a winner.

Action July 10 saw Bob Heiger and Steve Doyle forge the lone 3-0 pool play record to earn the day’s bragging rights.

Tim Sofran walked his way to the winner’s circle with the only 3-0 record during July 13 action.

Play gets underway at 9 a.m. Wednesdays and Saturdays at the Anna Maria City Hall pits. Warmups begin at 8:45 a.m. followed by team selection.

There is no charge to play and everyone is welcome.
