NHPA membership sanction card dues increase to $30.00 (still $5.00 for Jrs).


 As voted on at the NHPA annual meeting at the world tourney in Utah the dues for sanction cards are increasing.  Your costs for a 2018 NHPA/CT Charter membership card will be $30.00 annually.  This card will allow NHPA sanctioned tournament entry in National, Regional, State, local tournaments and sanction leagues, anywhere in the USA (in accordance with NHPA Bylaws and Rules).


 As members not only do we play a sport that truly highlights family we receive league patches for competing, patches for winning in tournaments, uniform courts to pitch on, a set of standard rules that govern our sport, an online website to view worldwide averages known as NatStats and the chance to meet players around the world by competing in the annual World Tournament in July.  The CT sanction card gives us additional benefits as we get to complete in the New England Horseshoe tournament every year on Labor Day weekend, where we play against friends from VT, NH, ME, RI and MA.  The sport of horseshoes gives us the opportunity to play horseshoes and make friends across CT, New England and the entire horseshoe world for $30.00.

If you haven’t seen this 1968 video footage of Three Time (3) champion Dan Kuchcinski pitch shoes on the Johnny Carson Show, you owe it to yourself to watch this short clip.  This is the modern day horseshoe version of the William Tell story of the boy with the apple on his head.

I can confidently say, if it were me throwing the shoes, Johnny Carson would definitely be singing three octaves higher and would be looking at reconstructive surgery.
