Brooks Jr. prevails in horseshoes tourney
BRISTOL — Thomas Brooks Jr. claimed the title at the Bev Forgues 100 Shoe Toss Tournament that was held at the Sodbusters Horseshoe Club courts off Airport Road in Bristol on Sept. 26.
The horseshoe pitching competition did not have head-to-head matches, but instead everyone pitched 100 horseshoes, counted that score, and then added in their handicap (based on previous play) and came up with the final score.
“This is a handicap tournament, where you’re against everyone on the list,” explained Sodbusters official Mike Brown.
Brooks, who had a handicap of 109, came away with a final tally of 213. Brown was close behind with 211, followed by the tournament namesake, Beverly Forgues, and Alan Curler tied at 209.
The complete results, with place and points, were as follows:
1. Thomas Brooks Jr., 213 points; 2. Michael Brown, 211; 3. Beverly Forgues, 209; 4. Alan Curler, 209; 5. Debra Brown, 204; 6. Mistylee Baird, 201; 7. Lou Cousino, 197; 8. Ken Cassidy, 164; 9. Michael Devino, 184; and 10. Donna Lewis, 184.
