The National Horseshoe Pitchers Association will hold the 2011 World Horseshoe Pitching Championships from July 18-July 30 at the Monroe Civic Center.
For the first time in history, the event will be run with electronic scoring systems on all courts. Forty-six portable horseshoe courts will be set up in the Monroe Civic Center Arena for the two-week event.
This two-week event is held once each summer to crown a World Champion horseshoe pitcher in each of eight divisions – Open Men, Open Women, Senior Men, Senior Women, Elder (short-distance) Men, Junior Boys, Junior Girls and Junior Cadets (9-years old and under).
