Rain couldn’t dampen enthusiasm at Vernon Horseshoe Club’s annual tournament

Wet weather didn’t dampen the enthusiasm as approximately 40 people turned out for the Vernon Horseshoe Club’s annual tournament.

Players came from as far away as Golden, Cranbrook, the Lower Mainland and up and down the Okanagan Valley.

“It was a good turnout, despite the rain, everyone had fun,” said Vernon club spokesperson Dwight Cousins.

The club meets Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6 p.m. at Alexis Park Horseshoe Club.
