Competition Format and Rules
RULES: National Horseshoe Pitchers Association rules will apply, with the exception of some Cornhusker State Games modified rules based on entry numbers.
FORMAT: The 30’ divisions are limited to pitchers who normally pitch using a 30’ distance. All games in the 30’ divisions will be 40 shoes. Handicapping events will be optional at the discretion of the tournament director, depending on the range of ringer percentages. If used, handicapping will begin after deducting five points from the difference between each player’s ringer %.
SINGLES: 6-8 entries per class, competing in a round-robin tournament as two groups of eight or nine. This format may be adjusted according to the number of entries and time schedule. Scoring will be 40-shoe or 50-shoe games. During round-robin play, ties will remain ties (1/2 point each).
DOUBLES: Doubles is limited to 48 teams, which will be placed into eight groups consisting of a maximum of six teams in each group. Combine the team players’ total ringer percentage for placement in the round robin tournament. Competitors will pitch 50-shoe games. In doubles events, only team ringer percentages will be kept.
TIES: First place ties will be settled by ladder playoffs. Other ties in standings will be settled by ringer percentage.
