Horse­shoes

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - CLASSIFIEDS -

Hav­ing a toss may not seem that un­usual to some peo­ple. Horse­shoes is an out­door game played be­tween two peo­ple (or two teams of two peo­ple) us­ing four horse­shoes and two throw­ing tar­gets (stakes) set in a sand­box area. The game is played by the play­ers al­ter­nat­ing turns toss­ing horse­shoes at stakes in the ground. This is a clas­sic ex­am­ple of an old-fash­ioned pas­time that has turned it­self into a or­gan­ised and very com­pet­i­tive sport, played around the world (though mostly in the USA). Ob­vi­ously there were no such things as Playsta­tions, Xboxes or even Ataris back in the day. But toss­ing a horse shoe over a stake?
