Capital City Horseshoe Club
NHPA/MOHPA MEMBERSHIP DUES:
It’s time for horseshoes! If you have not already done so, remember to renew your National Horseshoe Pitchers (NHPA)/Missouri Horseshoe Pitchers Association (MOHPA) membership for 2015. Application forms are available in the Shoe Biz or at http://mohpa.us/application.htm. You cannot participate in sanctioned leagues or tournaments unless you pay your 2015 NHPA/MOHPA dues.
CAPITAL CITY HORSESHOE CLUB LEAGUES AND CLUB DUES:
A form is attached to renew your 2015 Capital City Horseshoe Club (CCHC) dues; and to sign up for Spring Singles League (Starts Sunday 04/12/2015—6 weeks), Summer Singles League (Starts Tuesday 06/02/2015—6 weeks) and/or Fall Singles League (Starts Thursday 09/03/2015—6 weeks).

SHOW-ME STATE GAMES/THE SENIOR GAMES TOURNAMENT:
The Show-Me State Games has agreed to host a sanctioned tournament on Saturday, June 13, 2015 at Cosmo Park in Columbia, MO. We are currently in the process of negotiating some details, including court improvements. Registration will soon be open at www.smsg.org. You may contact Larry Brown, Tournament Director, firstname.lastname@example.org for additional information. Our agreement thus far is to have four (4) eight-person classes (classes C and D at 9:00 a.m. and A and B at 1:00 p.m.). It will be limited to the first 32 people that register. The State Games will provide support, including volunteers, but any experienced pitchers would be welcomed to help. This will be considered a "pilot project" to determine if this tournament can be managed under both NHPA and State Games rules and guidelines. The Senior Games Tournament will be held, as in previous years, on Friday, June 12, 2015, 1:00 p.m., at Cosmo Park; however, this tournament is not sanctioned, and pitchers are assigned to age cohorts rather than ringer-percentage classes (www.smsg.org/senior_games/).
A black, vinyl coated fence was installed in 2015.
