Dear Horseshoe Pitching Enthusiast,
We would like to invite you to participate in Team World 2017 or help organize a team to represent your state or province. Team World is a unique event in which top horseshoe players from states and provinces form teams to compete for the Team World title. Many participants consider it to be the best horseshoe event of the year; no other horseshoe event is quite as fun. The event is held on 24 indoor courts at Edwards Sports Arena in Beloit, WI on May 19th, 20th & 21st.
The tournament takes place over three days. Each team will play all the opposing teams in a round robin format. The teams finishing with the most wins after round robin play will move on to the step-ladder playoff to determine the winner of the event. Depending on the number of entries, there will be five to seven teams that will enter these final matches on
Participating teams will consist of 4 or 5 adult players from the same state. There is a limit of 3 short distance pitchers. At least one 40ft pitcher must be competing at all times. The entry fee is $200 per team, which is usually sponsored by the state charter. A scorekeeping fee of $1 per game, per player will be assessed when teams arrive to check in. Teams with the lowest combined ringer percentage from a charter will be denied entry in the event we receive more than 24 teams. More information will be provided to team entrants in Late-April.
If you have trouble gathering a team try contacting your state or province charter officers, their numbers are listed in every Newsline as well as online. They will help you contact potential teammates. You can also contact members of the committee and we will help you.
We hope to see your state or province represented in 2017!
