HORSESHOE pitching will be running this festival in aid of the bushfire appeal.
The old-time sport will be taking place at the Tamworth City Bowling Club starting on Thursday and finishing on Sunday, January 20.
The whole aim of the game is to get the horseshoe on the ringer, a small pole. If you get it on the ringer you get three points, otherwise the closest one to the ringer in the small outlined square gets one point. The first to 21 wins.
Director of the club and organiser of the event,Gary Jackson said they are looking for a good turn out.
“We have never had this kind of event before and we it should be a lot of fun,” Mr Jackson said.
“We encourage families, friends, mates and whoever else wants to come down for a bit of a go. It’s also a good way to raise a bit of money for those down in Tasmania.”
Participants can enter in pairs, teams, singles or fours and there will be finals on the last days. Entry for sections are $5 each with money going towards the Tasmanian Bushfire Appeal.
