Back in the day, the Men’s Horseshoes tournament would be followed by the Women’s tournament a month or two later due to an overwhelming number of entrants. Both events were led with parades, cheerleaders, and over 100+ participants. Of course, the beach was a hundred yards wide, so there was plenty of room to hold the event on a massive scale.
The Horseshoes tournament, in its 38th year, was held on June 9, 2018 and was hosted by the San Onofre Surfing Club. We had 7 teams turnout for this exciting event, held just south of Old Man’s. Our chairperson, Jean Vetter and her brother John, have held this event for the past 25 years with the help of volunteers. The tournament is based on double eliminations, giving each team two tries to advance. There was much anticipation leading up to the team who would eventually be crowned the winner. Thank you to all who participated!
