Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas & a safe & Happy New Year.
I just returned from the NHPA Winter meeting in Florence, so here are a few things you need to be aware of before heading to Florence SC this summer.
First - For those persons in any state that currently have a Medical Exemption, you must include with your entry form a copy of the "Approval Letter" for that medical exemption from your charter officer that manages the medical exemptions.
For you KY Pitchers that currently have a medical exemption - If you do not have or cannot locate that letter, please let Buddy Lampkin know, he will locate that letter for you since he manages the Medical Exemptions for KY. The deadline for the WT entries is May 15, 2018.
You can enter the 2018 World Tournament on line at www.horseshoepitching.com or you can print the form and mail it in along with your entry fee as well.
Second - We have been asked by the Florence Civic Center to pass along some information. Due to the safety and security policies of the Florence Civic Center, everyone will be wanded and checked for Concealed Weapons of all kinds when entering the Civic Center building. This includes pocket knives of all types and sizes and Guns. No matter if you are a "Concealed Weapons Permit Carrier" or not. The items will be confiscated if security detects any items they feel that poses a safety and/or security risk... NO Exceptions.
If anyone has any questions or concerns, please fee free to let me know. I sure hope Ky has a great showing this year since we are so close, Ky can bring home the "Gold".....
If you have not contacted Jan Clay to get your 2018 Membership Card, please get in touch with her and she will mail it to you.
Thanks & Happy Pitching
