2016 World Tournament
You are the first to see this on a horseshoe pitching website! After the second ballot Montgomery was selected by the NHPA voting delegates as the 2016 World Tournament site over Spokane Washington. I know everyone will want to make their plans in advance.
It was a Great World Tournament again this year. We had fun pitching and catching up with friends we only see once a year. If you have never been it is a great experience and one that you will definitely want to repeat year after year. Next year’s 2015 W.T. is in Topeka, Kansas. The 2016 W.T. is in Montgomery Alabama so start planning for one or both now you won’t regret it.
We had Two pitchers this year take first in their Class and we are Very proud of both pitchers. They are
Class C Champion
Elders Class K
We had 20 pitchers make the trip to Hamburg for the World Tournament and had 9 of them finish in the money. We had 3 get 3rd Place trophies and 2 win their classes. This was a great year for Georgia pitchers and we want to Congratulate all of the GHPA pitchers on a job well done.

Dane Clark the President of the Warner Robins club cancelled his last tournament of the year on September 13th so that the Brunswick club can have their tournaments since both of theirs were rained out earlier. The Brunswick club wants to thank Dane for doing this so that their local pitchers can attend.
To all current Newsline subscribers:
With the beginning of e-Newsline in January of 2015 a decision had to be made regarding what to do with the current subscriptions that expire between now and the end of the year. All subscriptions that expire this year will have their expiration dates changed to December 1st 2014. That will give them free Newsline until the end of this year. Any new subscriptions will still be taken, but only one year subscriptions will be accepted. If you send in more than a one year subscription, no refund will be made at this time. At the NHPA convention in July we will discuss what to do with the subscriptions out two or more years, and if refunds will be made.
The 2014 Georgia Horseshoe Pitcher's Association Tournament Schedule has been placed on our Tournaments page. Make sure you take a look to see when and where we are pitching this year. We have a new club forming in Lawrenceville and will be holding a couple of tournaments there. Just as soon as I get the directions I will put the link online too. You will notice more color to the links on our tournaments to better clarify things. The tournaments once I post the results will be highlighted in the color of this sentence. Regularly scheduled tournaments will be listed in this color. Tournaments that do not count toward any Georgia Pitcher Awards will be in this color.
