Horse Shoes - The Second Leg of the 2014 Consejo Triple Crown

Horse Shoes
The Second Leg of the 2014 Consejo Triple Crown

The Second Leg of the 2014 Consejo Triple Crown was Horse Shoes. The matches were held on Saturday, February 8th. on two pitches set up at Tom and Rose Gardner's home in Consejo Shores.

Play began at 8AM. The weather was a little warmer than for last months Bocce games. Horseshoe scoring here differs a bit from the way it is scored in most backyards. Ringers count for 3 points and cancel each other out, so if Horseshoe Pitcher A throws two ringers and Horseshoe Pitcher B throws two ringers, this is called “four dead” and nobody receives a point. If Pitcher A throws two ringers and Pitcher B throws one, though, the former gets three points for the one ringer that wasn’t matched by his competitor. Leaners, where the shoe is leaning on the stake, count the same as any other non-ringer, you receive a single point for each shoe that is closest to the stake than the closest opponant, within a certain distance.

Like all Consejo Triple Crown events, this is double emimination play. Eveyone plays until they have 2 loses.
