Each pitcher will throw 50 horseshoes per

of inclement weather, league play will be
rescheduled as needed.
League dues are $40 (for full-time
pitchers), and include club membership, or
$25 if you just want to be a league sub and
club member. Junior league and
membership fees are $10. A club-only
membership (non-league) is $15.
