Annual Quesnel horseshoe tournament goes ahead despite smoke

Prince George players join local pitchers for enjoyable meet

Quesnel Horseshoe Pitchers Club hosted a tournament Aug. 12-13 at its facility on Carson Pit Rd.

The tournament attracted two additional players from Prince George, and four Quesnel pitchers.

Club secretary Jeanette Ferrara said: “It was a small tournament with smoke in the air and rain on Sunday, but all went well on both days.”

She said the clubhouse kitchen was open for breakfast and lunch each day for attendees, and all enjoyed the games and friendly atmosphere.

The Quesnel club is hosting an unsanctioned doubles tournament Sept. 17. Anyone interested is invited to play.
