I was pleasantly surprised Saturday morning when I saw a whole bunch of activity at the old Balboa Park Horseshoe Club! A tournament was underway involving local members of the Southern California Horseshoe Pitchers Association.
The usually desolate and somewhat unkempt horseshoe pits were humming with athletic feats and camaraderie. One person expressed optimism that membership was on the upswing. Many competitive events have been planned.
It’s good to see folks actually using the large facility located at Sixth Avenue and Juniper Street–and having fun! Here’s a link to the 2016 SCHPA Pitching Schedule. The California State Championships are taking place in Balboa Park this September!
