Horseshoe competition at Scenic Inn

A SECOND horseshoe competition is to be held at The Scenic Inn, near Armoy.

The date is September 23 and anyone who is interested in playing singles is urged to enter particularly as there will be cash prizes for the winner and runner-up.

In July, The Scenic Inn ran the first ever horseshoe event in response to an interest expressed by patrons of the popular venue.

Shirley McKinley, who runs the pub and restaurant, readily agreed to clear part of the car park for ‘shoes’ and the day proved extremely successful with some 30 competitors.

Its popularity was enhanced when a barbecue provided those present with burgers, sausages etc.

Winner on the day was local man, Willie Culbertson, who enjoyed a relatively easy passage to the final as well as in the final itself.

However, this time he could face more stiff competition with more experienced throwers likely to enter including some from the Mosside Clodders as well as from Windyhall, Magilligan and Limavady.

As one of the organisers put it: “We want this competition to be one to remember .”

Anyone thinking of taking part in the forthcoming event is asked to register their interest by 2.45 p.m. latest on the day as the competition will start at 3 p.m. sharp.
