Hi All,

I had a rather disappointing weekend pitching horseshoes.  After last weekend I was slightly optomistic that I might actually start to pitch more like I am capable and I feel like I took 10 steps backwards.  I had 5 bad games out of the 11 with really no great games to speak of.  Alan Francis pitched very well despite having trouble with hitting on the top of stake a fair amount (except against me).

In the womens division, Sylvianne Moisan defended her title.  Joan Elmore defeated Sylvianne during the round robin and in the process had a string of 52 ringers in a row.  They also combined for 13 consecutive 4-deads (both players having doubles) which breaks the ladies world record.

Here are the results of the mens class and my individual games.  I am kind of embarrased to report, but that is the way it goes.  The bad with the good.
