The Southern Utah Horseshoe Pitchers Association invites you to participate in the Ringer Nationals. This exciting tournament is a Ringers-Only Format. Yep, that's right, close no longer counts, it's Ringers-only! We invite all horseshoe pitchers to come give the unique Ringer-only style of pitching a try. All skill levels are welcome, you will be matched up with those closest to your qualifying Ringer %. We look forward to a strong payout for both 30 and 40 foot divisions. If you have pitched in Horseshoe Pitching's "Horseshoe Tour" you will recognize the familiar 30-shoe elimination bracket-format.
