Ringers of Rice host Leprechaun Tournament
The Ringers of Rice Horseshoe Club held its 2015 Leprechaun Tournament on Aug. 8 and 9. The annual event took place at the club’s home courts located at O’Brien’s Pub in Rice. Thirty-six pitchers were entered in six classes determined by pitching averages. There were 20 cities and two states represented this year. Cash prizes were awarded to the top three pitchers in each class. All other pitchers in each class received a consolation prize provided by club members and local businesses.
Class A champion was Janet Larson of Evansville. She was undefeated and averaged 70 percent. Class B was won by Josh Olson of Bertha. Mel Larson of Upsala took the top spot in Class C and Kevin Stein of Little Falls was the Class D champion. Larson and Stein won all of their games. Sherm Anderson of Princeton was the top pitcher in Class E and Class F was won by Devin Stone of Rothsay.
Grilled burgers, sweet treats and refreshments were available each day for the pitchers and spectators. Raffle tickets for special prizes could be purchased during the tournament or won by playing Bag Toss and the Red, White and Blue Ringer Game. The raffle drawing was held Sunday afternoon.
Tournament Director Ginger O’Brien and the members of the Ringers of Rice Horseshoe Club said “thanks” to all who participated in and supported the Leprechaun Tournament. Anyone interested in becoming a part of the horseshoe league is encouraged to contact O’Brien’s Pub for more information.
