The day started with the MNBP Parks & Recreation staff prepping the beach with heavy equipment ready for the Lions to come in and try and figure out how to lay out as many horseshoe pits as possible, considering this year’s high water levels. Only 18 pits were squeezed in at the six foot spacing between the pins.

We had 48 teams registered this year, down from previous years.

The Lions’ roar of “Hot Dogs, hamburgers, cold pop and cold beer” could be occasionally heard over the loud speaker system as they sold hamburgers, pop, a lot of adult refreshment and sold out of hot dogs.
