Horseshoes Tournament

Y'all ready for some fun? Get a “taste of Texas” at the first-ever ALA Horseshoes Tournament. If you want to network with other industry professionals on Sunday but are not in the golf tournament, this is the perfect alternative.

“Y’all come join us because this is a Texas thing,” says Gabriel Trinidad, general manager of Austin, Texas-based Lighting Incorporated and organizer of the first-ever ALA Horseshoes Tournament. “Other things Texans like to do include eating, drinking, yacking and bragging.

A Texas tradition, horseshoes is an outdoor game played by tossing horseshoes at stakes in the ground. Players score by throwing the horseshoe nearest to the stake.

“A series of games will be played, so you don’t have to stay the entire time unless you want to claim the championship,” Trinidad adds. “Just think – you can tell all your friends back home that you played in an authentic horseshoes tournament in Texas. It will be like tailgating around a barn, only without a bunch of horses.”

* Registration Fee: $59 before Aug. 15, 2013. Fee includes lunch and drink tickets.
