4th of July week means one thing.  Time to pole dance with horseshoes and head to Hilltop for the annual tournament with everyone in the resort.

The brackets were made in the 2017 Roy Tungett Horseshoe Tournament.  Roy was smiling down watching it all take place and happy Tom made all the brackets balance out

There are those who go for the joy of playing with their sister and getting a ringer

In the end our runners up were Carrie Vandersteeg and Phillip Cass.  Phillip was thrilled as his name was on the pony plaque for non winners and he knew he could finally take his name off the plaque

The big winners in the end were Molly who was playing in her first tournament and Eric Snodgrass who’s son Graham immediately stole his crown with a big smile and wore it all night

After the resort picnic Phillip got to remove his name and add his brother Tony in yellow behind him to the plaque

A toast was made to Roy as we rehung the plaque on the wall in the office till next year.

What a great thing you started so many years ago corralling everyone off the beach to head to Hilltop despite all the groans of the sunbathers.  Thanks to Roy
