Corporate Challenge Will Provide: Horseshoes, but participants may bring their own if the shoes meet the requirements below.
  • Games are a race to 15 or 21 (you do not have to win by 2).
  • In women's and mixed competition all non-medal games will be played to 15. Medal games will be played to 21.
  • In men's competition all games are played to 21.
  • 3 points for a ringer (Must be able to touch both ends of shoe which is around the stake with another shoe standing upright and not blocked by the stake.)
  • Any ringer that covers another ringer counters the points to zero. Then the next closest shoe(s) is counted for points provided it meets the measurement requirement.
  • Horseshoes must be within 6" to qualify for point consideration. (1 point)
  • Winners report results of match and score immediately upon completion of play.
Timing All matches will be limited to 50 minutes each. Participants will be expected to keep their own time. In the event of a tie, a sudden death elimination will occur.  

In the winners bracket play if a team is late the coordinator will move to the next game with no penalty. If it is the last game of a round the missing team will be placed in the losers bracket. If a team concedes a match or has started and ceases to play during an event, all prior wins or losses will still stand and any points earned will still be awarded.
Ceasing to play in an event in this manner must be announced to the event coordinator.
