Ringer percentage is required.  If you have no ringer percentage, you will need to establish your percentage by pitching 50 shoes, counting ringers only.  Contact the Horseshoe Director for times and locations: nhpagame@infowest.com.  Once your ringer percentage is established, you will be entered in that division.  The Saturday before the Games, a warm-up tournament will be held.  You may establish your ringer percentage at that tournament.  Contact the Horseshoe Director for details.
