Tossing shoes to get a ringer

by Jessica Sirls

MOSINEE (WAOW) --  A tournament in Mosinee wasn't about the shoes competitors wore on their feet, but the ones they threw with their hands.

That's because playing horseshoes was the order of the day.

Dozens of people came out to take a shot at pitching some ringers.

All of this to horse around a bit, and of course to show off their skills.

Randy Rein loves the the one-on-one compeitition.

When it's his turn to play it's all business, but afterwards time to let loose.

Rein says, "Here you do it or you don't do it.  There's no one to blame but yourself and I like that.  If you want to be good you practice hard at it and if you don't want to be that's fine too you just come out and have fun."

It was also an opportunity for people to qualify for the state competition.

And the top three players of the day were awarded cash prizes.
